Twitter TROLLS A$AP Rocky for year old #BlackLivesMatter shade

ROCKY ROAD…

 
Twitter is turning its pitchforks and knives on “F**king Problem” rapper, A$AP Rocky, after a 2015 article has resurfaced in which he vehemently protested getting involved in the socio-political issues such as the Black Lives Matter movement. 

 
Despite the fact that the 27-year-old native New Yorker just used his celebrity to promote awareness throughout the African American community alongside Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, Bono, and Taraji P. Henson in the “23 Way You Could Be Killed If You Are Black in America” PSA, messy messer exhumed a year old interview the rapper did with Time Out magazine in which he refused to talk about injustices on wax.

READ AN EXCERPT VIA TIME OUT

“I think speaking on a subject is fine but I don’t feel like I need to make songs off of it. If I felt like doing it I would. [That student’s] whole question was, “Why haven’t you [gotten political?” I’m like, Bitch, ’cause I don’t feel like it. Kendrick is doing that already. J. Cole is doing it already. Let them deal with that shit. I wanna talk about the fucked-up shit in my life. Not that fucked-up shit I see on TV. Because I’m not there. How am I gonna talk about something I’m not helping? It’s fucked up. It’s a touchy subject. 


Do you ever feel like you’re being forced to address these issues? 

“They’re not forcing me to do sh**. I’m just gonna stay black and die. Why, because I’m black? So every time something happens because I’m black I gotta stand up? What the f**k am I, Al Sharpton now? I’m A$AP Rocky. I did not sign up to be no political activist. I wanna talk about my motherf**kin’ lean, my best friend dying, the girls that come in and out of my life, the jiggy fashion that I wear, my new inspirations in drugs! I don’t wanna talk about no f**king Ferguson and sh** because I don’t live over there! I live in f**king Soho and Beverly Hills. I can’t relate. I’m in the studio; I’m in these fashion studios; I’m in these b**ches’ drawers. I’m not doing anything outside of that. That’s my life.”

 

WELL… ALRIGHTY THEN! 

Footage of Rocky jawing about the black community’s lack of reaction to black-on-black crime in comparison to the major response when a cop kills a black person has also surfaced…and is too rubbing some people the wrongggggg way. 

 


 
While some socially conscious Hip-Hop heads applaud Pretty Flaco for experiencing a change of heart over the last 365 days, other Twitter soldiers are busy digitally drop-kicking the fashion forward flow master in his little braids…
