ASAP Rocky Addresses Travis Scott Comparisons on ‘Ebro in the Morning’
A$AP Rocky paid a visit to Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning on Thursday, (Jan. 14) and discussed, among other things, A$AP Nast's claims that Travis Scott was biting his crew's style. Rocky said that he doesn't know Scott too well personally, but gave the rapper his due, saying that he's doing exactly what he's supposed to.
"If you gonna do something and influence people, you can’t be arrogant about it when somebody gets inspired," he said. "When people get inspired, you can’t fault them for that. That makes you look crazy."
Rocky also mentioned that any dispute between rappers should be settled with music, not video clips, and that a lot of the tension comes from fans mistaking Scott for him.
"That’s instigation," he said. "You’re hearing it from me, let shorty rock. And let the people decide if he a biter or if he authentic. I’m not saying everybody should be allowed to just take [from] whoever got going on. I’m not implying that. I feel like that whole situation sound petty."
"It’s the Yams album that he was working on before he passed," he said. "So it's basically an A$AP collective. Like your Ruff Ryders Volume 1 type, Ryde or Die Vol. 1 or like Diplomatic Immunity." Rocky said that not much was done before Yams' untimely passing, but that he left sufficient instruction. "He broke down in his notes and he would tell me who he wants on there. We was about to start working on it," he said.
