If you listened to A$AP Rocky‘s recently dropped new album At.Long.Last.A$AP, you might have found yourself taken aback by a very explicit insult on an otherwise great song called “Better Things.” Here’s Rocky’s rant:
“Swear that bitch Rita Ora got a big mouth/ Next time I see her might curse the bitch out/ Kicked the bitch out once ’cause she bitched out/ Spit my kids out, jizzed up all in her mouth and made the bitch bounce.”
First off, TMI. More importantly, however, it’s just a dick move to sleep with someone and then tell the world exactly where you put what and what came out of it — particularly when it’s intended as an insult.
But wait — according to Rocky, this lyric isn’t a diss at all. Let him explain.
“I just want to clarify, this isn’t me saying: People don’t go listen to Rita Ora, or she’s an ugly person, or nothing,” Rocky told BBC’s Annie Mac [via Complex]. “I’m not saying she’s a terrible person, 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.”
So… he cheated on his girlfriend with Ora and got angry when she told some people about it. Now he’s telling the world she shouldn’t have shared that information in a public forum by sharing that information in a public forum (a studio album isn’t exactly under the radar).
As great as the new album is, that line is a glaring moment of grossness, bordering on bullying. But silver lining: Maybe this will set off a backlash against the Rita Ora backlash?
