How tall is A$AP Rocky? A$AP Rocky stands 5 feet, 10 inches tall, according to most sources. That height makes the Harlem rapper—sometimes referred to as ASAP Rocky—slightly taller than average, as the typical American male stands just over 5 feet, 9 inches tall. Height is just one of the many ways in which ASAP—born Rakim Mayers on Oct. 3, 1988—is above average. The buzzed-about MC leads his own crew, the A$AP Mob, and has emerged as one of the key figures in modern hip-hop. In January 2013, following a couple of acclaimed mixtapes, he dropped “Long.Live.A$AP,” his first proper studio album.
At 5 feet, 10 inches, A$AP Rocky is taller than Kanye West and T.I., who both top out at 5 feet, 9 inches, as well as Eminem (5 feet, 8 inches) and Lil Wayne (5 feet, 5.5 inches). Relative to other hotly tipped rap newcomers, A$AP Rocky has height advantage on Kendrick Lamar, who stands 5 feet, 6 inches tall, but is dwarfed by 2 Chainz, the Southern riser who’s listed on most sites at 6 feet, 5 inches. Not even Snoop Dog—6 feet, 4 inches—can compete with 2 Chainz in the height department, but fortunately, success isn’t a product of height—otherwise Shaq would be the greatest rapper of all time.
A$AP Rocky might not be greatest of all time, but he did sign a $3 million record deal with Sony, and he’s earned plaudits from critics on both sides of the Atlantic. He’s on his way to becoming a musical giant, if not a literal one.
