“What the f*** am I, Al Sharpton now?!”–ASAP Rocky
A$AP Rocky Blasted For Comments On Police Killings
A$AP Rocky is currently getting the BUSINESS online after comments he made about police brutality resurfaced.
Earlier today Pretty Flacko started trending over a 2015 Time Out New York interview that suddenly picked up steam. In it, the rapper says he doesn’t feel compelled to “get political in his music” considering that other artists already have.
An argument did arise, though, at Oxford University, when you said you didn’t want to get political in your music.
“I think speaking on a subject is fine but I don’t feel like I need to make songs off of it. If I felt like doing it I would. [That student’s] whole question was, “Why haven’t you [gotten political?” I’m like, B***, ’cause I don’t feel like it. Kendrick is doing that already. J. Cole is doing it already. Let them deal with that s***. I wanna talk about the f****d-up shit in my life. Not that f***d-up s*** I see on TV. Because I’m not there. How am I gonna talk about something I’m not helping? It’s f***d up. It’s a touchy subject.”
He then added that he doesn’t want to be a political activist and he can’t relate to “no f**** Ferguson.” “I live in f*** Soho and Beverly Hills,” said ASAP. “I can’t relate.”
Do you ever feel like you’re being forced to address these issues?
“They’re not forcing me to do s***. I’m just gonna stay black and die. Why, because I’m black? So every time something happens because I’m black I gotta stand up? What the f*** am I, Al Sharpton now? I’m A$AP Rocky. I did not sign up to be no political activist. I wanna talk about my motherf***’ lean, my best friend dying, the girls that come in and out of my life, the jiggy fashion that I wear, my new inspirations in drugs!
I don’t wanna talk about no f*** Ferguson and s*** because I don’t live over there! I live in f**** Soho and Beverly Hills. I can’t relate. I’m in the studio; I’m in these fashion studios; I’m in these b***s’ drawers. I’m not doing anything outside of that. That’s my life.”
