Last week on The Angie Martinez Show, Swizz Beatz and A$AP Rocky dropped their song "Street Knock" off Swizzy's upcoming Limitless mixtape. Of course, the araabMUZIK-produced track had a pretty dope beat, but our stylish ears started burning the minute we heard Swizz Beatz drop a Givenchy reference towards the end of the first verse.

Rocky took that one luxury call out and built on it, lacing his verse with the names of some brands, designers, and artists that you rarely hear about in rap songs. Which is kind of ironic, given that earlier this month, he said this regarding name dropping brands:

"I might stop name-dropping though. I’m not even gonna rap about brands anymore because I don’t want people to think I’m doing it on purpose." - A$AP Rocky, i-D Online 

In any case, we listened closely to mine all the stylish references we could hear. Check out Name Brands: Swizz Beatz and A$AP Rocky's Fashion References in "Street Knock."
