A$AP Rocky clarifies his disses of the Hood By Air and BEEN TRILL brands on "Multiply," and yes, he meant what he said.
Purported "Fashion Killa" A$AP Rocky caused quite a stir in the garment world with his recent track "Multiply." Rapping âI ainât really fuckinâ with that BEEN TRILL" and "HBA shit is weak, you can keep that" on the recent single, Rocky even incited a response in the form of a new shirtÂ from BEEN TRILL's Heron Preston. Now, Rocky has adressed these lyrics head-on in a new interview.
Check out an excerpt from the Pretty Boy's interview withÂ The CutÂ below:
This conversation about Hood by Air: Do you think they are weak? Did we misunderstand?
No, there is no misunderstanding.
Why did you say that?
Because I can. I birthed it, so I can kill it.
[Regarding] the Hood by Air line on your album, was there anything in particular that happened? That made you feel like the stuff was weak?
You know, fashion, it changes. Your perception of fashion sometimes changes; one day is red, the next day is blue. My style changes, it varies.Â
So you werenât as into it anymore.
It is what it is. HBA shit is weak.
Will you work with those guys again?
I donât know.
How about Been Trill? [On "Multiply," Rocky also says, "I ain't really fucking with that Been Trill."]
That shit is wack, too.
Anything in particular?
Iâm going to put it to you like this: I can say that Iâve been scrutinized for my fashion since I was about 15 years old. A lot of people got it easy. I feel like I had to go through the whole Civil Rights Movement just to be comfortable, to make other people comfortable, to be able to wear what they want to wear, and a lot of dudes are just claiming to have it without having to have that sacrifice or suffering through all that kind of shit. Weâve been through that kind of shit. Thatâs all I can really say about it. It is really miniscule. Itâs no real beef.
