(AllHipHop News) A$AP Rocky loves the competitive spirit his brethren Kendrick Lamar incited with his "Control" verse but does believe the West Coast MC was "crazy" for naming himself the King of New York.
In an interview with Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex, A$AP Rocky, one of the MC's named in Kendrick's "Control" verse, Rocky said Kendrick must be "smoking crack" in reference to his King of New York comment. While the Harlem MC was simply joking, he did believe it was good for Hip Hop:
Honestly, K. Dot and them ni**as, that’s fam. I think hip-hop needs this shit,” said Rocky. “It’s ni**as pissed off just because they wasn’t mentioned. I’m not justifying shit, rap is rap. The ni**a didn’t say nothing about nobody mother, he ain’t want problems. He said these is my ni**as and I’m lettin’ ya’ll know it’s competition. What’s the problem? That man know I’m where he at.
Rocky then admitted that he hardly listens to rap these days however he did like Joell Ortiz and B.O.B's responses to Kendrick.
