I had a lot of close friends stab me in the back for their own greedy desires. I never saw that coming. I never thought my real niggas would be on some fuck shit with me, and do wack shit. I’m a good nigga, and a lot of people fuck with me and then leave with these accusations trying to fuck up what I worked hard for. For example, the whole thing with SpaceGhostPurrp. I didn’t say anything. He’s putting his foot in his mouth. People are starting to see he’s a racist and crazy and bipolar. I look on the Internet and every time we put something out he gets his Raider Klan people to be like, “You’re biting,” and it’s like, “You’re just mad I’m bigger than you.” His life revolves around hating on me, and this is a guy who used to live in my house. My mom took care of him. Before I had a record deal we were sharing dinner plates and shit.
Do you think you’re influencing people like Kanye?
Of course. That’s obvious. [Laughs.] We’re all in the same circle. He’s way richer than me, but of course he’s influenced by me. C’mon, bro. I made waxed denim cool in hip-hop. Fucking waxed denim and rips in jeans. Nobody else did that. I don’t give a fuck. I didn’t know what I was doing. These jeans are Balmain, and I wear them with a Supreme jacket. Of course I’m influencing.
that asap interview is fuckery but highly entertaining
Roc Marciano: “I was out there in the streets around that time, and Jay was just preaching on how to get rich. You know how they talk about how conscious rappers might get a little too preachy? He was too preachy on how to get money. [Laughs.] He was actually scolding us, like, ‘If y’all ain’t gettin’ no money, you’re a fuckin’ bum.’ So we were out there hustling, and he was definitely pushing the agenda of getting money. It was motivational music to dudes who were actually out there trying to hustle up some money.
“And that’s not to take away from the artistry, because the fuckin’ rapping is excellent, and the beats are also. It’s a beautiful piece of work. ‘D’Evils’ used to fuck me up. All that shit. ‘Can’t Knock The Hustle.’ Hov put together a master work with that.”
He’s way richer than me, but of course he’s influenced by me. C’mon, bro. I made waxed denim cool in hip-hop. Fucking waxed denim and rips in jeans. Nobody else did that. I don’t give a fuck. I didn’t know what I was doing. These jeans are Balmain, and I wear them with a Supreme jacket. Of course I’m influencing.
This nigga invented distressed denim now? Fuck boy doesn’t even have OG Supreme. But he is a style god now? Shit Atlantic will drop a Donnis album before this nigga’s album is in stores.
Question, does the Nation of Islam support Muslims in the Middle East? Vice-Versa?
Marable’s Malcolm X bio points out that before immigration reform of ’65, the majority of the Islamic population in the states was NOI based. I’m under the impression that they have always considered themselves to be part of the Ummah. Wheter that is a two-way street is probably up for debate, and would depend on who you ask.
