There’s a lot rapper ASAP Rocky has to be thankful for this holiday season, including his budding new family with music superstar Rihanna. Shortly after going public with their relationship, the couple welcomed their first child into the world in May.
With assault charges and a civil lawsuit hanging over the Harlem native’s head, Rocky dedicates every waking second to his infant son. The “Sh*ttin Me” rapper spoke with Complex‘s Jessica McKinney on how fatherhood treated him. This isn’t the first time Rocky has opened up, but it’s the longest statement.
Rocky gushed: “It’s beautiful,” before adding: “Honestly, I think fatherhood gives me more time to do exactly what I want. I don’t have time for anything that doesn’t. It’s not a priority. It helps you prioritize, honestly. I love it. It’s all based on my new found love for being a father and a family man. It’s on right now. I can’t even describe it. Yo , you see that smile! I’m all smiles right now, man.
When the rapper isn’t engrossed in his responsibilities as a father, he expands his fledgling fashion empire. According to Rocky, that’s precisely how he likes it: “I’m in a place where I want to give it my all. All I have is my job, my art and my family. It’s just my life. I just wanna give these motherfuckers some shit. They will see. It will be sick.
