asap-rocky-1

In the midst of the recent murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police brutality, A$AP Rocky was the subject of controversy on social media last week. The Harlem rapper/model did an interview in 2015 with Timeout, where he stated “I don’t wanna talk about no fu**ing Ferguson and shit because I don’t live over there! I live in fu**ing Soho and Beverly Hills. I can’t relate. I’m in the studio; I’m in these fashion studios; I’m in these bi**hes’ drawers. I’m not doing anything outside of that. That’s my life.”

The comments resurfaced last week as people fired back at Rocky for his insensitive considering he’s a black male, from Harlem, and a figure in pop culture which people look up to. A$AP Rocky requested to appear on The Breakfast Club to open up on those comments, where he tells Charlamagne Tha God that he was misquoted and the person conducting the interview twisted his words trying to push an agenda.

With a heavy heart, Rocky also touched on the various issues across America affecting him, what he’s trying to do to make a difference, rumors that he prefers to date white women, becoming the new face of Dior, appearing on will.i.am’s upcoming star-studded remake of “Where’s The Love” and more.

killer-mike

Killer Mike once again gave another informative and moving speech about the injustice in America — namely with the latest rash of recorded police killings. In a radio interview with Hot 107.9, Mike gave some serious suggestions on how to change the system from the inside. He gave some real advice on ways to empower black owned business which can ultimately lead to huge changes in government.

“What we can do is go to your banks tomorrow. You can go to your bank tomorrow. And you can say ‘Until you as a corporation start to speak on our behalf, I want all my money. And I’m taking all my money to Citizen’s Trust’… Apartheid ended in South Africa because students in America said ‘We not flying Delta anymore,” continued Mike.

“We not drinking Coca-Cola anymore. We’re not supporting any corporation that supports the Apartheid and the enslavement of people that look like us.’ And I’m just saying once again… Take your money out of this dog’s hands. Out of their paws. Take your money.”
