Album: Cozy Tapes Vol. 2Released: 2017
This sinister-sounding track finds A$AP Rocky and guests Frank Ocean, Quavo and Lil Uzi Vert offering praises for Belgian fashion designer, Raf Simons. In addition, Playboi Carti throws in some playful ad-libs throughout the chorus and Rocky's verse.
I'm racked up like rappers
I'm Raf'd up on camera
Get knocked out on camera
Squeeze pump like asthma
It's rare Raf when I wear Raf
Bare Raf when I wear Raf
Raf Simons (born January 12, 1968) is a self-trained menswear designer who launched his Raf Simons label in 1995. The Belgian has been referenced extensively in urban and hip-hop music, with artists such as Rihanna and Big Sean wearing his designs and mentioning him in songs. A$AP Rocky regularly models for the brand, shouts it out in his lyrics, and has a personal relationship with the designer.
The beat is courtesy of Dun Deal, who previously worked with Rocky on his "Bachelor" cut. He has also collaborated with Migos on several of their tracks including "Hannah Montana" and "WOA."
The VHS-style video features A$AP Rocky, Quavo and Playboi Carti modeling a series of archive pieces from peer-to-peer menswear selling site Grailed. Lil Uzi Vert and Frank Ocean are both absent from the grainy clip.
