Besides being friends with Raf Simons, Rocky expresses his love for the Belgian designer and his menswear fashion brand on the new track.
A$AP Rocky proves his love for his favorite brand of menswear Raf Simons on his new track, "RAF". He taps three of the greatest rappers today, Quavo, Lil Uzi Vert and Frank Ocean, to lend their voices on the new song. With a hook "Please don't touch my Raf", the four rappers brag on the fashion-centric song.
"RAF" was released in two versions on Ocean's Beats1 show "Blonded RADIO" on Monday, May 15. The two versions are not really different as the only noticeable change is Ocean's verses. On the first version he uses more of staccato flow with more monotone voice, while on the second version, he raps a little bit more energetic with a tone closer to his singing voice.
"I done came up/ Bustin' down a whole bag/ Broke n***a, step back/ Why don't you peep a n***a's swag/ You don't even gotta ask/ What are those? What is that?/ Please don't touch my Raf/ Please don't touch my Raf," Rocky spits on the chorus.
Rocky is a notable fan of Raf Simons. He claims that the Belgian designer "is the gratest to ever do it." The rapper previously said, "I feel like Raf Simons is important for the culture based on the fact that he built a whole new religion around fashion."
"RAF" is not Rocky's first song which is about fashion. Prior to this, he released a pop song called "Fashion Killa" in 2013 which asserted his status as a fashion rapper. With his closet stocked with fashion brands like Dior Homme, Gucci, Guess and Adidas, he has become one of the most original and stylish men today.
