Music 1w

Harlem’s fly and flamboyant fashionista, ASAP Rocky is continuing his tradition of name-dropping his favourite wardrobe-fillers, and this time it’s old mate Raf Simons.

On the aptly titled ‘Raf,’ Rocky makes another statement regarding the relationship between rap and high-end designers, following the likes of Jigga’s ‘Tom Ford’ and Migos’ irresistible ‘Versace.’ In fact, Quavo from the ATL trio delivers a guest verse alongside Lil Uzi Vert and a surprising effort from Frank Ocean, who switches from his usual melodic crooning to a more direct rap form.

As you can probably tell from the title, the track honours Simons and other designers that ordinary people can’t afford to wear, all over hypnotic production.┬áThe track appeared on Ocean’s BlondedRadio show on Beats 1, where he also named Andre 3000 the GOAT. We can’t disagree with that one. Listen to ‘Raf’ below and get some inspiration if you’re heading to Fashion Week over the next few days:
