It’s not every day we get to see A$AP Rocky in a ’fit battle, especially against those several years his senior. And despite Rocky’s advantage in years — and lack of grandchildren — this one-off dual is a close call.
Photographer @jaadiee is behind the styling challenge. His Instagram account is filled with shots of his grandparents dressed in streetwear’s finest drops, so it was only a matter of time before Gramps made into the big leagues.
The veteran matched Rocky’s famous 2017 look down to a Tee, donning the same black Balenciaga sweatshirt and Vans Old Skools. While Rocky opted for black dress pants and Apple EarPods, Gramps kicks it up a notch with gray pants, a black beanie, and wireless Apple AirPods.
@asaprocky vs. Gramps! Who wore it better? 👴🏻 (Peep Gramps AirPods though, some next level shit 😤)
Naturally, the comments flooded in, with many rooting for Flacko while still giving props to Gramps. In the spirit of true showmanship, however, Rocky passed the baton, commenting, “GRANDPA GOT THIS 1 💪🏾.” As for us, the jury is still out.
Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments who you think won this battle, Rocky or Gramps?
