The 35-year-old artist poses in a new photography series from artist Carrie Mae Weems called “Portraits of Fatherhood” by Bottega Veneta, commissioned by Creative Director Matthieu Blazy.

“This is the evolution of Mr. Mayers,” says A$AP Rocky in a statement, who was announced as Bottega Veneta’s latest brand ambassador.

“This is me embodying and embracing fatherhood, parenthood, companionship, and family, while still working on all aspects of my career.”

In one picture, he lifts up his youngest son and kisses his forehead. Another shows the young boys at a toy piano, with Rocky playing alongside them on a keyboard. There is also a short film, directed by Carrie Mae Weems, with music direction by Rocky.

Carrie says the project with A$AP Rocky represented “an important gesture that cannot be understated.”

Rocky’s concerns as an African American man with children profoundly moved me. Historically there has been a deep lack of honest representation of the Black family. It has been distorted for centuries. This was a unique opportunity to say something not just positive, but truthful – not just about Rocky’s own experience, but about how that reflects out to the broader population. In the wake of all the atrocities committed against Black men — particularly because of their masculinity — Rocky can be seen with his children, in love. To be able to speak that authenticity through him was galvanising,” she continued.

“I first encountered Carrie’s photography as a student,” adds creative director Matthieu Blazy. “I was deeply moved by its originality, engagement, and social impact. Over the years since, I have carried the power and importance of her work with me. I am honoured that she has brought her lens and vision to this project with Rocky, exploring fatherhood and what it means today. The images shows the realness of Rocky as a father and as a man beyond the public figure. What strikes me first and foremost in the pictures is their intimacy.”

“I don’t think there are many people in my culture who advocate for fatherhood and parenthood. This player persona is very pushed. When you think about a rapper, you think about adolescence, about the single bachelor lifestyle. When you think about A$AP Rocky, you think about a playboy, pretty boy, bras being thrown on stage. This is about me as one-woman man, as a family man. It is about what completes my life now: being present as a partner and a parent,” Rocky adds.

“To me, this is the first of its kind. It is a collaborative, collective art piece that shows the sincerity of my place and interactions as a father.”
