A$AP Rocky continues to show his support for fashion designer Raf Simons in TIME‘s “100 Most Influential People of 2017.” You’ll recall that the rapper released a track earlier this year titled “#PLEASEDONTTOUCHMYRAF,” as a tribute to the Belgian designer. This time around A$AP penned a few words saying:

“I feel like Raf Simons is important for the culture based on the fact that he built a whole new religion around fashion. It’s to the point where kids, male and female alike, will get in full arguments over why he’s the greatest. And it’s amazing how his prior work, his archive, is more important and relevant than anything that’s out today. When you wrap your mind around the concept that he wrote the future of fashion and design in the 1990s and early 2000s, then you’ll also understand why Raf is the greatest to ever do it.”

Among the list was also Chance The Rapper, see who else made the list.
