The A$AP Mob were in full effect earlier this week on MTV’s, RapFix Live. During their interview, A$AP Rocky unveiled some secrets about his crew’s upcoming group album as well as his soon to be released, LongLiveA$AP LP.
After being asked about who will be featured on the A$AP Mob album, Rocky named Jim Jones, Raekwon and the Flatbush Zombies amongst others, as guests. However, when asked about who’ll be on his own solo album the “Pretty Flacko” rapper remained tight-lipped, only confirming that Kendrick Lamar would have a guest spot.
This comes after Rocky and fellow A$AP member (also Rocky’s manager), A$AP Yams, exchanged some heated words with producer Mike Dean after the latter voiced his displeasure with artists mimicking the Houston sound. “we need some new H TOWN RAPPERS to blow up. WHY THE FUCK THERE ALL THESE FAKE ASS HOUSTON KNOCK OFF ARTISTS FROM UP NORTH AND WEST #GAY,” he tweeted. “I MEAN REP WHERE YOU ARE FROM NOT US.” Soon after Yams fired back, tweeting “THE NEW GENERATION IS A MELTING POT OF INFLUENCES FROM EVERY WHERE GET OFF THAT OLD HEAD SHIT.”
While speaking with MTV’s RapFix Live, the Polo Grounds signed MC opened up about the incident.
“He was just talkin’ subliminal about Northern people,” Rocky told host Sway Calloway. “You gotta look at it like even Bun B embraces us, and we look up to him too. Not only that, it’s love when we’re out in the H-Town, and on top of that, he was bumpin’ us. This Mike dude was bumpin’ us before we got hot. Why stop now? Everybody else you around bumpin’ us and soundin’ like us.”
As of press time, A$AP Rocky’s “Goldie” single is currently sitting at No. 88 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop charts. —Ralph Bristout
