ASAP Rocky Reminisces About His Brother’s Death In New Mercedes Benz Commercial
by Staff Editor
A$AP Rocky has always been more than just a hip-hop artist. Throughout his career, he’s made waves in the fashion world and has even found himself on the big screen in successful movies such as DOPE.
His latest off-the-mic venture sticks to the big screen as Rocky stars in a new Mercedes Benz commercial deemed “Grow Up: Get A Job” and it’s more powerful than you’d think.
The new ad spot finds Rocky reminiscing on the death of his older brother Ricky, whom Rocky considers a huge inspiration and reason for his success. Rocky narrates:
“Growing up, I had this beat stuck in my head. No matter what, I could never really get it out. I guess when you young, you could be anything you want to choose, but as you get older, all of those options start to narrow and before you know it, every choice you make comes with a consequence. Whenever sh*t got rough, this beat was always there. But one day, man, the beat just stopped.”
Rocky continues, “My older brother Ricky is responsible for me growing up and having a real job.” Powerful stuff to say the least.
