A$AP Rocky has been under social media fire this week after the Harlem rapper rants about the chart-topping singer in his new song “Better Things”.
In the song, the rapper makes reference to an alleged sexual encounter with her as follows:
“I swear that b**ch Rita Ora got a big mouth/ Next time I see her might curse the b**ch out/ Kicked the b**ch out once cause she b**ched out/ Spit my kids out, j***ed up all in her mouth and made the b**ch bounce.”
During an interview with Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac, A$AP confessed the following:
“She got me into a lot of trouble but I just want to clarify, this isn’t me saying ‘don’t go listen to Rita Ora’ or that she’s a terrible person,” he said.
“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. But honestly the song is really old. It’s from the time the situation I was referring to in the song happened.
“I felt it was such a good song I didn’t take it off. It would have been tasteful for me to just mute that part but it is what it is and it’s out.”
Indicating that there is no hate between the pair, A$AP ended the conversation with a shout-out to Ora and her fans saying-
“To Rita Ora and her fans – keep going, you’re still beautiful baby girl, just next time keep your mouth shut and I’ll do the same.
A$AP released his latest album At. Long. Last. A$AP, the follow-up to 2013’s Long. Live. A$AP on Tuesday.
