“I’ll drink some off-brand shit if I’m thirsty,” admits 24-year-old Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky in an interview with NY Mag. A$AP—whose “F**kin Problems” featuring Drake and Kendrick Lamar is nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video this Sunday at the VMAs—knows the importance of staying hydrated off that designer H20, which is why he drinks a few bottles of VOSS everyday. He specifically does not “fuck with Fiji,” although he gives no explanation as to why. The definitive list of designer waters—yes, we’re talking Ray & Stark’s 45-page bottled water menu—explains that “Fiji water begins as rain falling on the tropical island of Viti Levu’s north coast and is drawn from an artesian aquifer that lies hundreds of feet below the edges of a primitive rainforest.” Yet, Fiji is far too unrefined for Mr. Rocky’s palate.
When asked about the best meal he’s eaten in NYC, the rapper replies, “If I say where I go, then people are gonna show up, so I don’t wanna say nothing, you know? And it’s not little girls. It’s fucking grown-ass men. It’s weird.” That would be a little disturbing to see grown-ass men show up at your favorite pernil joint in Harlem and ask you for an autograph. Although, A$AP reveals he’s been a pescatarian for the past two years, which means he stays off that roast pork shoulder. Be sure to catch A$AP at the VMAs this Sunday, where he’ll be grubbing on salt-crusted branzino and drinking a tall glass of VOSS.
