Best Line: "He trying to lie to people, pumping that we took styles from them. I mean, if you really look at it, the proof is in the pudding. He's corny. Stick to making beats."
It's disheartening to see former associates become strangers, or worse, sworn enemies. A$AP Rocky and SpaceGhostPurrp used to be cool; they were even a great musical pairing as SpaceGhostPurrp's dark, raucous production helped make "Pretty Flacko" a sleeper hit. By the middle of last summer, it all went sour, with SpaceGhostPurrp eventually labeling Lord Flacko a style-biter.
In a brief July 2012 interview with MTV, Rocky swiftly dismissed the accusations, calling SGP "corny" and advising him to "stick to making beats." That's mad hurtful, B! The salt in the wound has been Rocky's success, while SpaceGhostPurrp has yet to take his career to the next level. We'd love to see the Raider Klan and A$AP Mob put their differences aside, but there have been too many incidents and insults traded for that to happen in the foreseeable future. At times, the bravado of young men is too thick to cut with even the sharpest of blades.
