A$AP Rocky Surprised By Rakim On

A$AP Rocky finally meets his namesake.

A$AP Rocky's mother is evidently an old school Hip Hop fan, as she named her son after legendary emcee Rakim.

In a recent interview on "The Angie Martinez Show," the young rapper was surprised by a meeting with his namesake.

In the middle of the interview, the young rapper was stunned to suddenly find himself face-to-face with the God.

"I'm overwhelmed right now," said a grinning A$AP Rocky.

Martinez told the story of the young rapper's mother meeting Rakim, and asking him to sign the then-infant's diaper, as she had nothing else for him to autograph.

"You don't a crazy lady running into you at the [stop]light?" asked Rocky.

A visibly moved A$AP Rocky was so overjoyed, he had to call his mother in the middle of the interview. 

"Don't tell me...don't tell me you are here with the God!" screamed his mother. "Rakim is the God. I am a goddess. I gave birth to a god!" she said, explaining her reason for naming her son after the Rap legend.
