According to a report from Vibe.com, A$AP Rocky went on stage during the Rolling Loud festival this past weekend and delivered a freestyle set as part of his performance. However, what stirred controversy in the headlines was the content of his lyrics, which some fans believe were a shot directly at his fellow rapper, Travis Scott.
Rocky said in his set, “another victory be flawless like the skin on me, d*mn/please, please don’t compare him and me, you offendin’ me,” and fans were entirely convinced the ex-boyfriend of Kendall Jenner was referring to Travis Scott.
The rapper went on to reference in his freestyle the classic line from Denzel Washington in American Gangster, “the loudest ones in the room are always the weakest.” Later on, A$AP took to his social media account to address rumors he was referring to Travis Scott.
Reportedly, A$AP Rocky isn’t thrilled with the idea of fans and others comparing him to the father of Kylie Jenner’s child, Travis Scott. With that said, Rocky claims there has never been a feud between them. This past year, Peter Rosenberg interviewed A$AP Rocky during a sit-down in which he offered praise for the Astroworld artist.
A$AP Rocky said to reporters that he felt as though he was a pioneer in many respects in the hip-hop community, however, he doesn’t get the respect he deserves, or even the acknowledgment. The star added that he thinks a lot of people can see it as well.
“I think Travis Scott, he makes cool music,” before going on to say that he had just had a child with Kylie Jenner, adding he was happy for the news. A$AP Rocky has been all over the headlines in the last year, but for less than positive reasons.
This past summer, the rapper was detained by Swedish authorities for an assault on a 19-year-old man. A$AP and his friends were reportedly followed by irate men, whom they then got into a fight with. A$AP was held for approximately one month while he went through the Swedish legal system.
