The aftermath of Kendrick Lamar's lyrical performance on "Control" is still in the air, with many rappers giving their own take on the verse heard 'round the world. One of the artists he mentioned, A$AP Rocky, spoke about the verse in a recent interview with Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex.
"It’s niggas pissed off just because they wasn’t mentioned. I’m not justifying shit, rap is rap," Rocky says. "The nigga didn’t say nothing about nobody mother, he ain’t want problems. He said these is my niggas and I’m letting ya’ll know it’s competition. What’s the problem?"
After playfully stating Kendrick was "smoking crack" and "crazy" for his "king of New York" line, Rocky did explain that the lyric wasn't justified from the Compton rapper. "I got a crib in L.A. I’m doing the same venues, if not bigger venues. I don’t feel no type of way," Rocky says. "I’m not going say I’m the king of L.A. I could, at least I live there."
