Chris Inoa is the Eastbay Catalog Killa
“Multiply” was Rocky reintroducing himself to those of us who forgot about him while he was making dirty looking Jeremy Scott sneakers and being engaged to former America’s Next Top Model judges. Before the ball dropped in Times Square, just a few train stops uptown, Harlem neighbors were threatening to call the NYPD cause Rocky dropped the full version of the interlude that gave us Juicy J dancing in front of screens projecting fireworks.
Produced by his former adversary Spaceghostpurrp, this is two minutes of Rocky telling us what he’s been up to before “Multiply” dropped. Is he saying anything new on Lord Pretty Flacco Jodye 2? Not really. Rocky knows what works for him and while other rappers have left me confused with the direction they are taking with their music and their hairstyles; I’m having fun imaging Rocky’s chilling at the Grand Budapest with a model chick and a couple bottles of overpriced alcohol. Ferg has kept the leather black A$AP flag waving during Rocky’s exodus, but with an engagement over and a lot on his mind, the self-proclaimed fashion killa has already reintroduced himself to the scene, told us how he’s been and now NYC is ready for what’s next.
