A$AP Rocky is catching a lot of heat and side eye after he spit a verse a bashing verse Rita Ora on his new album At.Long.Last.A$AP, which dropped this week by surprise.
Fans and listeners flooded the internet with comments about the track, wondering what had happened between the two, and if they ever had a fling going on out of the public eye.
The original lyrics from Rocky that caused so much controversy read:
“Swear that bitch Rita Ora got a big mouth/ Next time I see her might curse the bitch out/ Kicked the bitch out once ’cause she bitched out/ Spit my kids out, jizzed up all in her mouth and made the bitch bounce.”
During an interview with BBC‘s Annie Mac this week, he clarified the lyrics:
“I just want to clarify, this isn’t me saying: People don’t go listen to Rita Ora, or she’s an ugly person, or nothing. I’m not saying she’s a terrible person, I’m just saying that when I was in a relationship and I did things with her that I wasn’t supposed to do, she had a big mouth.”
He also mentions that the song is pretty old, but decided to include it on the album anyways.
This definitely comes as a surprise, considering Rocky was with his ex-girlfriend Chanel Iman for a couple of years, and the details of their breakup were never quite clear.
