According to our scorecard, A$ AP Rocky is the first rapper called out in Kendrick Lamar‘s earth-shattering “Control” verse to substantively respond to it. The Harlem rapper was on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show, and when asked about K-Dot declaring himself the King of New York, Rocky responded thusly: “That king of New York shit, you smoking crack. You crazy.”

Rocky, who enlisted Lamar for his LongLiveA$ AP cuts “1 Train” and “Fuckin’ Problems,” went on to say “I got a crib in L.A. I’m doing the same venues, if not bigger venues…I’m not gonna say I’m the king of L.A. I could, at least I live there.”

Watch the full interview below.

Other than the bogus NYC claim, A$ AP Rocky is cool with the challenge laid out by Lamar, echoing a sentiment many others have shared: namely, that it could reinvigorate hip-hop’s old school, competitive spirit. “I feel like that nigga’s one of the most talented of our generation. I ain’t got nothing but love for my whole TDE fam,” Rocky said. “I think hip-hop needs this shit[...] The nigga didn’t say nothing about nobody mother, he ain’t want problems. He said these is my niggas and I’m lettin’ ya’ll know it’s competition. What’s the problem?”

And the self-described pretty motherfucker says the fallout shouldn’t be focused on a who’s-who of responses, but on everyone lifting their game up. “It’s not about being relevant or not because hip-hop ain’t about relevance, man, it’s all about the sport, it’s all about the culture.”

    Taylor Momsen Is A Glamorous Ghoul In The Pretty Reckless’ “Going To Hell” Video: Watch

    The Pretty Reckless is back after an extended leave of absence with a typically dark and gloomy video for the title track of their sophomore album Going To Hell. The name says it all really. Taylor Momsen and the gang take a trip to Hades and rock out with banished souls. Things haven’t really changed for the band — at least visually — since they first broke with career best single “Make Me Wanna Die”. It’s still heavy-handed and gothic [...]

    Lorde Covers ‘Clash’ Magazine, Talks Dr. Luke Collaboration

    Lorde covers the pop issue of Clash magazine, wearing a brown turtle-neck sweater and retro hair-clips. It’s not exactly glamorous but that’s the whole point. More arresting than the teen’s outfit is her surprising revelation that she really wants to work with Dr. Luke. (Petitioners, be damned!) The 16-year-old tells Clash: “I’ve heard from lots of people, almost too many to mention! But Dr. Luke was particularly impressive.” Why? “It’s like, ‘you’re Dr. Luke. You’re like Rambo’. He’s pop royalty.” [...]

    Miley Cyrus’ ‘Bangerz’ Debuts At #1, ‘Glee’ & Cassadee Pope Make Top 10 On Album Chart

    With a sturdy wrecking ball betwixt her thighs, sweet Miley Cyrus has slammed her Bangerz all the way to the top of the Billboard 200. The album sold about 270,000 copies in its first week, an improvement over the 102,000 the Disney cherub’s last LP, Can’t Be Tamed, opened with in 2010. That’s not surprising, given the airplay and chart success of Bangerz‘s two singles “We Can’t Stop” (#2 on the Hot 100) and “Wrecking Ball” (#1). Bangerz is one of seven [...]

    Little Mix take a seat — literally — on the cover of their sophomore album Salute. It’s not exactly original or particularly eye-catching but they all look great sitting on a red sofa in the great outdoors, which is the main thing. They seem to have gone for a more polished look than the tartan-clad bad girl image they were projecting on the cover of new single “Move” but a bit of glamour never goes astray. Does it? Do you love [...]
