In 2015, Rocky released his second studio album titled At. Long. Last. A$AP.

Mayers started rapping at the age of 9, when he moved to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.[8] He learned how to rap from his older brother, who also wore the French braids hairdo that Mayers later adopted. When Mayers was 12 years old, his father went to jail in connection with selling drugs; he died in 2012.[9] When Mayers was 13, his brother was killed in Harlem.[10] The death inspired Rocky to take rapping more seriously.[11] Mayers grew up admiring Harlem-based rap group The Diplomats.

In February 2012, Rocky joined Kendrick Lamar as the opening act for Drake's Club Paradise Tour.[22] In June, SpaceGhostPurrp, founder of Miami-based collective Raider Klan and Rocky's past collaborator, accused A$AP Twelvyy of jumping Raider Klan's Matt Stoops and subsequently disassociated himself from A$AP Mob and Rocky in a YouTube video.[23] He and Raider Klan also accused ASAP Mob of copying their style,[23] and Rocky of using lyrics from SpaceGhostPurrp's song "My Enemy" on "Goldie".[24] Rocky responded in a July interview for MTV, saying that SpaceGhostPurrp is "try[ing] to build hype" and told him to "stick to makin' beats".[23]

In July 2012, Rocky performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival.[25] He was scheduled to make his network television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on July 20,[25] but he was then arrested the night before, after an alleged involvement in a brawl, with 21-year-old artist iRome.

Rocky recorded his debut studio album Long. Live.

A$AP Rocky in October 2013

On March 16, 2014, Rocky has announced that he was working on his second studio album, entitled A.L.L.A. (an acronym for At. Long. Last. A$AP)[42] which is a follow-up to his debut album, Long. Live. A$AP.[43] Upon the wake of a delay of the ASAP Mob album, L.O.R.D., Rocky subsequently collaborated with cohorts A$AP Ferg, Nast and Twelvyy on the album's third single, "Hella Hoes", which was released on June 6, 2014.[44] Nonetheless, A$AP Mob leader A$AP Yams announced on his Tumblr account that the album had been shelved.[45]

On October 3, 2014, the day of his twenty-sixth birthday, Rocky launched a short-lived music giveaway called Flacko Jodye Season,[46] which first premiered with "Multiply", which featured additional vocals from Juicy J;[47][48] later released on iTunes one week after its premiere.[49][50]

On New Year's Day to 2015, Rocky released his second album's lead single, "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2)", a sequel to "Pretty Flacko".[51] Then, on January 18, seventeen days after the single's release, Rocky's mentor and partner, Steven "A$AP Yams" Rodriguez, died at the age of 26.[52][53] However, some reports later stated that Yams' cause was ruled acute mixed drug intoxication[54] while Rocky and several A$AP Mob members and affiliates said that the late leader of the collective died due to his sleep apnea, which caused asphyxiation and pulmonary aspiration.[55][56][57] Weeks after Yams' death, Rocky revealed that At. Long. Last. A$AP was executive-produced by rapper Juicy J, producer Danger Mouse, Rocky and Yams themselves.[58][59][60]

On April 8, 2015, the rapper released a song, titled "M'$", debuted during an interview with the Red Bull Music Academy, and was released on the iTunes Store two days later,[64] however, it was announced that the song was not an official single from the album.[65] The album, however, did include a remixed version of the track that replaced Rocky's second verse with a guest verse from Lil Wayne. On May 9, Rocky unveiled the album's cover art on his official Instagram page, with the caption "AT LONG LAST...."[66] On the same day, he then released the album's alternative artwork[67] and released the album's second single, titled "Everyday" featuring Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson (the latter of which also produced the track alongside Emile Haynie).[68][69] Rocky also announced that the release date for A.L.L.A. was updated to June 2, 2015; however, on May 25, 2015, around 6:00 PM EDT, the album leaked online, approximately one week before its expected release.[70] Subsequently, Rocky tweeted to announce that the album will be released at midnight (May 26), changing the date a week early.[71]

Upon its release, At. Long. Last. A$AP received generally positive to mixed reviews from music critics.[72] Overall, the album was supported by the release of three singles: "Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2)", "Everyday" and "L$D". At. Long. Last. A$AP debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 116,000 copies in the United States.[73] In conclusion to this, it also gave Rocky his second consecutive number one album on the charts to date.[74] In Canada, the album debuted at number one, with 11,000 copies sold.[75] The album has spent two more weeks beyond the top ten of the Billboard 200.[76][77] As of July 2015, the album has sold 215,000 copies in the United States.[78] It has sold 60,662 copies in the United Kingdom, as of June 2015.[79] However, despite being his second consecutive number-one album, At.
