Like many rappers Rakim Mayers aka A$AP Rocky came up hard before hitting big. According to a Village Voice interview A$AP Rocky grew up in and out of NYC homeless shelters, selling drugs to scrape by. While it’s unlikely that that he’ll ever face those challenges again, housing may continue to be an issue for the 27 year old.

Rocky is being sued in Manhattan federal court for more than $250,000 by his landlord, according to the New York Post, which did not reveal Rocky’s address or the name of the landlord.

He is being sued for allegedly trashing a high-end Downtown rental.

He left it in a “complete state of disrepair,” court papers allege, noting a broken fireplace and a balcony that was damaged by water from his jacuzzi.

The unit was filled with “dirt, huge piles of debris and garbage,” the suit says.

Maybe that’s just what love, sex and dreams look like.
