A$AP Rocky Says Kendrick Lamar Must Be Smoking Crack If He Thinks He’s “King Of New York”

In an interview with Funkmaster Flex on Hot 97 this week, A$AP Rocky offered his opinion on the on-going Kendrick Lamar saga. When asked about Kendrick’s “King Of New York” declaration, the A$AP Mob leader responded frankly, “That King of New York shit? You must be smoking crack. You crazy.”

The rest of A$AP Mob was also in attendance for the interview and had opinions on a similar vein. A$AP Ferg whose new album Trap Lord is in stores today offered, “What’s a king to a Lord?”

A$AP Rocky went to elaborate that there will no ill feelings toward the song and that Kendrick Lamar was still family as far as he is concerned. Rocky considered the line to be mere good spirited competition and is taking it in stride.

“Honestly, K. Dot and them niggas, that’s fam. I think hip-hop needs this shit,” Rocky told Flex. “It’s niggas pissed off just because they wasn’t mentioned. I’m not justifying shit, rap is rap. The nigga didn’t say nothing about nobody mother, he ain’t want problems. He said these is my niggas and I’m lettin’ ya’ll know it’s competition. What’s the problem? That man know I’m where he at.”
