This campaign signifies a pivotal evolution for the rapper, who has embraced family life with Rihanna and their two children. Speaking with Dazed, Rocky reflected on this transformation, saying, “This player persona is very pushed. When you think about a rapper, you think about adolescence, about the single bachelor lifestyle. When you think about A$AP Rocky, you think about a playboy, pretty boy, bras being thrown on stage. This is about me as a one-woman man, as a family man. It’s about what completes my life now: being present as a partner and a parent.”

Carrie Mae Weems, who photographed the campaign, expressed how Rocky’s dedication to his family moved her deeply. “This was a unique opportunity to say something not just positive, but truthful—not just about Rocky’s own experience, but about how that reflects out to the broader population,” she told Dazed. “In the wake of all the atrocities committed against Black men—particularly because of their masculinity—Rocky can be seen with his children, in love. To be able to speak that authenticity through him was galvanizing.”
