No, you cannot play as A$AP Rocky in Need for Speed Unbound. A$AP Rocky is, however, featured in-game as a team leader for the PVE co-op game mode called Takeover Scene. As a leader, he will guide you through your objective of taking over Lakeshore City with other players. The Need for Speed team’s official description of the Takeover events is: “You see out here, street style is everything. Take over sections of the city by pulling huge drifts, smashing collectibles, and proving your skills to Lakeshore’s most stylish street racers. This is all about steez over speed, but don’t be afraid to go fast too. Now you got it, go make Rocky proud.” And proud you will make Rocky, I’m sure. We are excited to see all the stylish ways you will post online.
