Harlem native A$AP Rocky was asked to share his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s infamous “King of New York” declaration in his controversial guest verse on Big Sean’s “Control” track. Rocky didn’t take it too serious.
He laughed off Kendrick’s claim, but acknowledged that the verse has gotten a lot of artist attention and doesn’t see any problem.
“I feel like—I mean, that king of New York sh*t, you smoking crack. Like you crazy. You know what I mean?” Rocky told Funkmaster Flex.
“Honestly though, K-Dot and them n***as, that’s fam yo,” Rocky said. “I think hip hop need this sh*t, man. It’s n***as who’s pissed off just because they wasn’t mentioned. I just feel like I don’t understand how the n***a never—I’m not justifying sh*t, n***a. Rap is rap, my n***a. The n***a didn’t say nothing about nobody mother. N***a ain’t say he wanted the five minutes from nobody. He said ‘These is my n***as and I’m letting y’all know it’s competition.’ What’s the problem?”
