A$AP Rocky Responds To Tyler, The Creator's Criticism Of "F**kin' Problems"
A$AP Rocky also discusses how he was upset "a lot" by his album leaking a month in advance.
When A$AP Rocky released his single "Fuckin' Problems," Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator took to Twitter to criticize the track. "So Funny When Someone Releases A new Song With The Same 4 People That We Expected To Be On It With The Same Shitty 'Trap' Beat Hahaha," he wrote.
During an interview with Life+Times, the Harlem, New York native responded to the message, stating that it didn't faze him. "He has his opinions and he’s entitled to them, so it’s whatever," he said. "Hell no, I’m not tripping over what Tyler, The Creator said. I’m Jiggy."
Rocky also addressed his debut album LongLiveA$AP leaking to the Internet a month before its release. While he was fearful that it would hurt album sales, he says that he's pleased with the results but was upset when it happened.
"At first, a lot. I can’t lie. But then when I started seeing the great responses I was like… 'Fine!' We still got to number one. My mom thought that the leak would affect the sales and if I’m honest, it did affect sales but how do you still manage to be number one? It leaked over a month early too. That’s fucking crazy! It just goes to show people really fuck with ya boy out here. My mom downloaded the album illegally by the way."
Last month, the A$AP Mob member released his debut, which bowed at No. 1 on the charts with 139,000 copies sold.
