Just a few days back, AWGE dropped a new installment of their AWGE DVD series, which featured various members of ASAP Mob, as well as Kanye West, Tyler, The Creator, Skepta, Playboi Carti, Moby, and others.
Some people quickly noticed a clip of Yasiin Bey watching 6ix9ine's "Gummo" music video and remarking "Why is everyone acting like this new? This is a version of the same old shit." Yasiin continued, "This is the most depressing shit I've ever seen in my life."
Watch it for yourself. (The clip in question begins at around the 15:02 mark.)
Well, apparently the footage was not supposed to see the light of day.
AWGE and Yasiin have released a statement in which they say the clip was "taken out of context" and "leaked."
Read the full statement below.
"Earlier this week, AWGE released the third installment of their web docuseries AWGE DVD, chronicling behind the scenes moments with ASAP Rocky, the ASAP Mob and AWGE-affiliated artists and friends. Unbeknownst to Yasiin Bey and the AWGE team, an unapproved version of AWGE DVD Vol. 3 was leaked and included a clip of Yasiin Bey that was taken out of context and edited in a way that does not accurately depict him or his opinions. The leaked clip was not included in the final released version of Vol 3 from AWGE and does not reflect Yasiin Bey's feelings on Tekashi 6ix9ine, his work or otherwise. No further comment will be made at this time."
