A $ AP Rocky is always at the forefront of clothing and jewelry.
From the time he exploded on stage in 2011 to right now, Rocky has been a major pillar in the crossroads between hip hop and fashion. He worked directly with brands such as Pyrex and Been Trill early in his career, while popularizing high-end designers such as Raf Simons and Rick Owens, Testing the rapper’s influence is undeniable, even considering his Osiris D3-inspired Under Armor sneaker.

Recently, Rocky wore a duvet as a cape to the Met Gala in 2021 and gave the bandana off his head to a fan who complained about a bad hair day. And after a festive week in honor of the re-release of his debut mixtape, Live.Love.A $ AP on digital streaming platforms, Rocky showed off an insane new grill.
In conjunction with @grillzjewelz_is_right (which Drake follows on IG), Rocky was blessed with a diamond-clad grill, covered in legal flames made of several red, yellow and orange jewels. In the videos shared by grillzjewelz_is_right, there are so many diamonds and other gemstones implanted in the grill that it literally never stops flickering.
Rocky, who debuted the fronts in an Instagram post with the caption “4EVA GRATEFUL 4EVA GRATEFUL,” has been quick to express his gratitude within the past week.
Before fans flooded New York City’s Canal St. to a pop-up store celebrating its tenth anniversary Live.Love.A $ AP, Rocky shared a heartfelt message about what mixtape meant to him and what it means to him now.
“10 YEARZ I DI $ !!! A CRAZY JOURNEY. FROM HOPPIN TOOK WITH YAM $, DA UP $ & DOWN $, DA HUGZ, DA PUNCHE $, DA LAUGH $, DA TEAR $, DA HI ‘$ & LOW $. said Rocky. “FROM DA $ TA $ H HOU $ E 2 DA LATE NIGHT $ AT DA $ TUDIO $ WITHOUT CHICKEN, DI $ PROJECT WA $ HOW THE WORLD FIRST HEARD WHO ROCKY IZ WHO JODYE IZ WHO FLACKO IZ. 4EVA THANK YOU 4 ALVA FAMILY WHO HAS GROWN WITH ME DI $ IZ 4 Y’ALL.

While there was an initial disappointment that two fan favorites, “Kissin ‘Pink” and “Out Of This World,” would not be included on the band’s re-release, Rocky included a new bonus track, “Sandman,” and after paying tribute to deceased A $ AP Yams throughout the record, it was only right for Flvcko Jodye to post a picture of his new grill on IG as if it were 2013 again.
