A$AP Rocky Responds To Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” Verse

Published

Someone Kendrick Lamar actually mentioned in his “Control” verse is finally speaking out about the chess move that has had the hip-hop world buzzing for a week. A$AP Rocky addressed his shout-out in a recent interview with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex.

“The n*gga didn’t say nothing about nobody mother, he ain’t want problems,” the rapper explained. “He said these is my n*ggas and I’m letting ya’ll know it’s competition. What’s the problem?”

A$AP also admits a lot of rappers who were offended, people like Lupe Fiasco and Papoose, are just mad because they weren’t noted in Kendrick’s verse. “It’s n*ggas pissed off just because they wasn’t mentioned. I’m not justifying shit, rap is rap,” Rocky says. Several rappers have released diss tracks aimed at Kendrick, but not A$AP, Drake, Meek Mill, J. Cole or any of the other rapper’s Kendrick mentioned on the track.

That being said, A$AP did exception with Kendrick’s line about being the “King of New York. “I got a crib in L.A. I’m doing the same venues, if not bigger venues. I don’t feel no type of way,” Rocky says. “I’m not going say I’m the king of L.A. I could, at least I live there.”

He has a point.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
