They say that in order for you to have a successful future you can’t forget your past, so it’s only right that VICE magazine made sure that the A$AP crew did just that. 

Taking inspiration from the some of the most iconic album covers of the past, up and coming artists A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ty Beats, A$AP Dom, A$AP Ferg, A$AP Bigga Bari, A$AP Twelvyy, and Spaceghost Purrp all worked with photographer Ben Ritter to recreate album covers from the likes of ODB, Bruce Springsteen, Tupac and Weezer.
