A$AP Ferg recently sat down with NPR for an in-depth interview where he discussed a number of topics including his style, social media, and more. While Ferg spoke heavily about what he has going on musically—which includes his Ferg Forever mixtape and hitting the studio with Missy Elliott and Timbaland—his comments on racism have brought a lot of attention to the piece.
"That's what it is about this culture of the Internet. Is everything is merged. There's no racism with the Internet. Racism only was — is probably like five generations ago," he said. "Racism been over. It's the old people that keep on holding on to it. We don't hold on to that shit. We don't know racism. We all like having—like my brother had white—my little brother had white girlfriends. And that's regular.
He says he feels that classism is the current form of oppression that separates people, which is something Kanye West has said recently, as well. "Oh, classism, meaning like—it's just—basically it's not about racism no more. It's about money," Ferg continued. The entire interview can be heard below:
