A$AP Rocky received some major love from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Instagram earlier today. The rapper shared a video sent to him by The Rock who sends his best wishes to Rocky and the Mob.
“I am sending my very best wishes to you Rocky as we all come together tonight to celebrate an honor: the life of Rock’s best friend and a friend to many there in the audience, A$AP Yams,” he said before jumping into a “Rocky” chant for a brief moment. “Have the best time tonight. Rock, sending you all kinds of love and to the audience there, sending you all kinds of love as well. Have an amazing night and rest in love to A$AP Yams.”
Rocky posted the video to his Instagram video with the caption, “THANK U SOO MUCH TO THE ROCK WE LOVE U AND SORRY U COULDN’T MAKE IT THIS YEAR, THIS VIDEO MEANS SO MUCH , HAPPY YAM$ DAY.”
It’s unsure exactly how their relationship developed, but there’s a good chance Under Armour has something to do with it.
