A$AP Rocky has claimed he is “scared of women now” following the controversy sparked by the rapper for including sexual references to Rita Ora in his lyrics.
Speaking at Oxford Union’s debating society on Tuesday (June 16), the rapper did not reveal any details about the aftermath following his track ‘Better Things’, but he did discuss how he relates to women in his music. “A female’s vagina is the most addictive thing in the world,” he told the audience.
As reported by The Guardian , he was asked whether his music isolates women. “At times,” he responded. “But we do it to men, too. How many songs do you hear, ‘I gon fuck with you niggas’? It’s the same thing.”
The rapper was then asked to explain the use of the word ‘bitches’ as a reference to women in rap lyrics.
“I’m not going to justify other rappers, but for me, I only speak about my experiences. What I will say is, I’m 26, and I’ve met a lot of women, and I’ve met a lot of bitches.”
A$AP Rocky recently sparked controversy with lyrics from his track ‘Better Things’.
The song features on the rapper’s new album ‘At.Long.Last.A$AP’, which was surprise-released one week early on May 26. The record is the follow-up to 2013 debut ‘Long.Live.ASAP’.
The lyrics in question allude to an alleged sexual encounter with singer Rita Ora: “I swear that bitch Rita Ora got a big mouth. Next time I see her might curse the bitch out. Kicked the bitch out once cause she bitched out. Spit my kids out, jizzed up all in her mouth and made the bitch bounce“.
Internet users have criticised Rocky, with one writing, “That ASAP Rocky, Rita Ora diss is just disrespectful”, and another adding, “People laughing at the ASAP rocky verse about Rita Ora but I think it’s childish…You never hook up with somebody then clown her to the world”.
A$AP Rocky recently responded to the comments. “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 Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac. “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.”
