At the end of his debut runway, for a collection entitled “American Sabotage”, Rocky paraded around the room with a Don’t Be Dumb vinyl in hand. American Sabotage newspapers – among a bevy of other graphic posters – are hung throughout the ornate venue and read “Don’t Be Dumb. You Know What to Do. Blame Rocky!”

After the show, the rapper shared the full “American Sabotage” collection online, along with Don’t Be Dumb vinyl and box sets.
