It appears as though rapper A$AP Rocky can add “fashion model” to his CV thanks to a recent promotional appearance in London, where fashion retailer oki-ni tapped Rocky to model some of their most popular brands.

Those brands include Maison Martin Margiela, Kenzo, Paul Smith, and two of the rapper’s personal favorites, Raf Simons and Rick Owens.  A$AP Rocky brings a refreshing lack of professionalism to the shoot, giving the photos a candid quality you don’t often see in retail advertisements. Or maybe he just looks confused.

Anyway, you can check out some of the shots from the collaboration in the above gallery. Maybe A$AP has a future as a model, just in case the rap thing doesn’t work out for him.
