A$AP Rocky Poses For ‘Interview’ Magazine / Talks Homophobia In Hip-Hop

Published: Monday 25th Mar 2013 by Sam

A potent potion of hits, fashion, and outlandish have seen rapper A$AP Rocky ascend into the major leagues. However, it’s also the MC’s forward-thinking cultural commentary that has caught the attention of the masses for the right reasons.

Case, point his feature in the latest issue of Interview magazine. Paired with a (now trademark) risqué  photoshoot, the piece saw the 24-year-old New York native sit down for a Q&A with designer Alexander Wang – whose line he wore in the shoot.

Perhaps most interesting in their discussion was Rocky’s unprompted and frank take on the issue of homophobia in Hip-Hop. He said:

“One big issue in hip-hop is the gay thing. It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset that this topic even matters when it comes to hip-hop, because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid—and that’s not the case. We’ve got people like Jay-Z. We’ve got people like Kanye. We’ve got people like me. We’re all prime examples of people who don’t think like that. I treat everybody equal, and so I want to be sure that my listeners and my followers do the same if they’re gonna represent me. And if I’m gonna represent them, then I also want to do it in a good way.”

Insightful.

    HE IS GAY. real n***** are dying breed. You would never BIG, PAC OR DMX talking this gay s***. At least we still have EM.

    • LKeyana March 25, 2013

      Tupac and Gianni Versace were good friends. Tupac had gay friends. Don’t be ignorant.

      • Yamannn March 25, 2013

        Tell me about it. I’m happy ASAP said this. Its stupid m************ like the person I’m replying to, that gives men a bad name or hip hop a bad name….and like LKEYANA said Tupac did have gay friends and as far as your precious Eminem, he did a song and performance with Elton John…know your facts d*** head!!!!

      • beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 26, 2013

        The ignorant card sticks to me in the exact same way the race card sticks to FOX – NULL VOID!

        2 pac and Versace were not best buddies like that, they attended the same events. Who are 2 pacs gay friends? HE NEVER STOOD FOR THAT, he was about BUILDING THE BLACK FAMILY, no t having black men leaving single black moms for MEN. HE WOULD NEVER EVER DO A gay rap song. Even He dated Kidada Jones, but DID NOT LIKE BLACK MEN dating white women . SO all these black men with Kim K and being f*** GOES against what he stood for.

        EM: Interscope FORCED HIM TO DO THAT SONG with Eltoon for PR reason. I read an RENCT Interview with em from 2012. NOPE: Still not for gay rights, still not f** rapper. But, he is not gonna shade f*** either.

        WHAT ABOUT BIGGIE? PIMP C? DMXLike I said….. REAL dont n**** do not exist. Look AT RNB, you have n***** singing songs to MEN, then you winder why a Hillbilly southern redneck like JT ( love him though) HAS TO COME BACK AND SAVE RNB?

        What do u expect when n***** are singin about d***? rnb was based on being bag, and neither was REAL HIP HOP.

    When jay z was running game 10 years ago, he never would endorse homo f** s***, it is only becuase he cannot get s solo hit he is forced to suck d***. BIG would be so ashamed.

Put a Male model on the cover and send his Homo rent boy ass back to Harlem where he turks TRICKs

    Ms A$AP is trying to get that gay endorsement.

    GONE WITH THE WIND FABULOUS. 😆

  9. my forehead tho March 25, 2013

    I agree with him. Whether he’s a booty warrior or not (although he most likely is)is nobody’s business. As long as he doesn’t rap about gay s***, it shouldn’t be a problem. Still not a fan tho

  10. Mr Bradshaw March 25, 2013

    I have more and more respect for him with each interview he gives. He seems to be a very articulate and smart dude. I love people who stand for something. Says a lot about his character. And judging by the comments I’ve seen on this post so far (some of them) you all are among the small minded people he was referring to

    • -_- March 25, 2013

      well…tis the truth

    • -_- March 25, 2013

      well…tis the truth

    • s_w_a_p March 25, 2013

      YOU BETTER READ! And I agree with everything that you said.

    • Yamannn March 25, 2013

      Gotta love ASAP

  11. LA LA March 26, 2013

    F****** are a waste of life lmao! They can’t even produce! F*** outta here, with your f***** talk. These people are trying to tie everyone down to love them. F*** YOU! AND DIE! F*****!

  12. X,Y,”and Z” March 26, 2013

    Would Rocky would still feel that way if a gay/bi black man infected his sister, mother, niece, auntie H**/A***? After all, statistics show that GAY/BISEXUAL black men are the #1 health hazard for the heterosexual black woman:H** Infection.

    What would Rocky say if he saw Jesus strike-down and kill a homosexual? Would Jesus slap Rocky in the face and tell him to read his Old Testament?

    When will Rocky awake and realize that the powerful few who run Hollywood are the VERY same few hand-full who bottled and sold racism-as-intoxicant to an already thirsty world? When will Rocky realize that – that very same face: Gay, Jew Hollywood can be seen in the TMZ’s Harvey Levin?

    X,Y,”and Z” – Out!

    • beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 26, 2013

      PREACH!

      LET SEE WHAT N***** have to say now. Also, it now just gay n****.s IN Australia and UK, GAY MEN HAVE THE HIGHEST A***. These are rich white countries. IF BEING GAY IS Normal and natural, how comes THEY STILL LEAD WITH A***?

      AND U think I would encourage my SON TO GET Involved with that DIRTY LIFESTYLE?

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 26, 2013

        Sam, y wont u just ban b****** like these two.

    ROCKY = Useful Idiot.

    Gays/Homosexuals are a minority within a minority: few in actual numbers, but function one as a “gay mafia cabal”, then using their positions of power to further their “same-s** agenda”.

    ..And after gays get their same-s** marriages passed into law; after they then have managed to subvert every God/Nature-given law known to humanity; after the African Americans’ landmark “64 voter rights act” gets stuck-down by SCOTUS – with a black man as president; after racist, gay, Jew Harvey Levin continues his bold-faced racism – what will Rocky have to THEN say?

    That said.. Rocky will still be a black man;Trayvon Martin will still be dead; Black folks will no more have “voter-rights relief” in the Federal Courts; gay/bisexual black men be emboldened with their H** Infection campaign; and Harvey Levin/Hollywood will
    STILL be just as racist.

    A$AP ROCKY = Talkative Jackass and Useful Idiot.

    X,Y,”and Z” – Out!!

    • beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 26, 2013

      THAT is why I laugh at stats that they GAY n***** have the most A***. you swim in the GUTTER…………..YOU CATCH FLEAS.

      No sympathy.

      And when we all have to meet god, he will STILL JUDGE OUR SINS AND THEN WE WILL SEE WHAT’S UP! A lot of m************ will regret this whole gay thing.

    • beyonce is touring to pay back $50 mil to pepsi after blowing IT! March 26, 2013

      I love how these n**** f*** think, if they GO gay, and suck the white man d***, they will score brownie points . NOPE! The most racist type of white man is teh GAY WHITE MAN. I live in LA. Gays HATE N**** F***. They dont want them at their bars, clubs and THEY NEVER WOULD SLEEP WOTH THEM.

      Like I said…..real n****’s are dying breed.

    He is an average rapper at best, i laughed when he begged to be higher on that MTV hottest MC list. Very arrogant.

  15. MISHKA March 26, 2013

    “We’ve got people like Jay-Z. We’ve got people like Kanye. We’ve got people like me”

    A$AP Rocky, like most rappers now-a-days, is all about controversy, fashion and beats. Everything BUT lyrical skill.

  17. PrinceQue March 26, 2013

    I must say….these comments are REALLY dissapointing and disturbing. We need more rappers like ASAP who are willing to stand up for the rights of a minority. Thanks for your suport for the LGBT community ASAP.

    open minded = a REAL man

    “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

    @IAMDEXX re: “open mind = a REAL man”

    Er.. WRRONG! A righteous God-fearing man = a “REAL” man.

    re: “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

    Lord-God – Leviticus 18:22: “A man who lays with a man as he lays with a woman has committed an abomination; both shall be put to death; both will have their blood upon their heads!”

    Homosexuality in Jesus’ day was capital crime. Homosexuality today is tantamount to murder: H** Infection. CDC/NIH fact: Black/Bisexual gay men are murdering innocent black women.

    There is no more justified a punishment for premeditated, cold-blooded murder than a capitol one.

    It was then, as it should be now.

    X,Y,”and Z” – Out..!!
