Two things confuse me about A$AP Rocky:
A) The pronunciation of his name. Is it a-sap, as in meaning “as soon as possible” or “A Dollar Sign A.P”?
B) His cornrows.
But in any event, A$AP recently responded to his red lipstick comments in an interview with a DC radio station. He said the incident was blown out of proportion and people took his comments too seriously:
“Black girls just, ah man, went crazy. They just took it how they took it. This is actually my second time talking about it cause I really don’t really look at it as an issue. If people get upset at that I think it’s petty at the same time. It’s like they d*mn near wanna Rick Ross boycott me right now, over some lipstick controversy. Black girls, you know how sensitive they are, but they our sisters man. It is what is man. I come from a black home, so I know how sensitive black women can be. Especially when you talking about they looks or something like that. You can’t say nothing about they glasses, they nails, none of that because then you’re a womanizer or you’re a racist. I don’t know how I’m going to be racist. I have to wake up and look at my black a** in the mirror everyday. It’s like, what are you talking about? But it is what it is, man. I’m proud to be black.” (KYSDC)
So he thinks women want to “Rick Ross” him? And he knows how “sensitive” black women can be
he sounds like a few of the guys who leave comments on this site. So insightful.
