ASAP Rocky’s net worth is around $10 million. He has had several top charting albums in recent years, as well as brand collaborations, which explains his massive wealth.

ASAP Rocky released his first album "Long. Live. A$AP" in 2013. It received critical acclaim from the industry and soon reached number one on the Billboard 200, per Celebrity Net Worth. He soon embarked on road tours to promote the album and even launched his own clothing label to ride the popularity of his songs at the time. Two years later, "Long. Live. A$AP" went gold, which means at least 500,000 copies of the record were sold.

Like many superstar rappers, ASAP Rocky struggled in his early years. His father was jailed due to drug dealing, according to Biography. His brother was also murdered. These life events forced ASAP Rocky’s family to live in shelters and move from one place to another. However, the rapper became involved in drug dealing to support his rapping career. Later, he would admit he stopped doing such activities because he did not want to encounter problems with the authorities anymore.

There were several instances in the past that he had been arrested over assault charges. He had been detained at a Swedish jail but was spared a longer prison sentence.

The Harlem native rose from hardships and made a name for himself after being a member of A$AP Mob, where his pseudonym came from. Born Rakim Mayers, the rapper followed his chart topping debut album with "A.L.L.A" in 2015. Like the first effort, his second album also reached the summit of Billboard 200. Since then, he has collaborated with different artists such as Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, Tyler, the Creator; Drake, Kid Cudi and Frank Ocean, among others.

Aside from being an artist, Mayers also appears in movies and produces records under the name Lord Flacko.

On the personal side, ASAP Rocky is reportedly dating longtime friend Rihanna after the two of them were spotted going out several times. Mayers and Rihanna did a collaboration on the Fenty Skin campaign for men. Before becoming an item, the two were already friends since 2013 when ASAP Rocky opened for several Diamonds World Tour stops, a report from People revealed.

Rumors about the two artists getting involved became louder after the “Umbrella” hitmaker split from her billionaire ex-boyfriend Hassan Jameel early this year.
