This is brutal
A$AP Rocky loves to clown people, even his own friends. That was the case when he stumbled upon an older picture of his sometime-collaborator Playboi Carti with a woman’s jean-clad legs on his shoulders on Instagram.
The picture is admittedly silly. What could they possibly be implying here? Isn’t the legs on the shoulders shot negated by the fact that she clearly has her skinny jeans on?
Nevertheless, A$AP Rocky took things to a whole ‘nother level with his colorful commentary and ridiculous insults. Holding the picture up to the camera, Rocky went in on his friend and the woman for their choices. He zeroed in on the arrangement of the photo and the woman’s choice of acid-washed jeans, which he viewed as a faux pas.
“You ol’ stinky cheek a** n*gga, You ol’ ‘put your muthafuckin’ legs on my shoulders while I hit it from the front’ a** n*gga,” he said. “’Put your favorite pumps on’ ass n*gga. That b*tch don’t take them back to the future acid wash jeans off your shoulder n*gga, like it ain’t 2017, you bum a** n*gga.”
Rocky held up at that point, saying that he had more in the tank but wanted to let off because he considers Carti a friend.
“Carti, you lucky you my lil’ bro, I’m gonna let your a** live cause I love you to death, but you gotta chill,” he said. “That’s all I’ma say.”
Playboi Carti was scheduled to go on tour behind the massive success of his mixtape and viral hit “Magnolia.” Lil Uzi Vert was supposed to come along for the ride, but just a day after the dates were announced, Uzi announced he was pulling out on Twitter.
“Not going on tour wit carti need 2 focus,” he wrote.
Vert also famously roasted his friend Carti during a Q&A of young rappers. When a fan asked where Playboi’s then-still-unreleased mixtape was, Uzi couldn’t help but jump in.
“Yeah, for real. I don’t even know why you famous,” he joked, “He don’t even have a tape, how the f*ck are you famous?”
“Honestly yo, I didn’t come in the game trying to make a mixtape. My mixtape too fire. I just been listening to other dude’s tapes and sh*t,” he countered.
“That sh*t wack,” Vert replied. “He won’t drop it ’cause it’s wack. That’s what it is.”
Of course, the mixtape did hatch Carti’s inescapable hit, so maybe he was on to something.
Carti has yet to respond to Rocky. His last post on Instagram was from earlier this December, featuring the caption “album mode.” Given how long we had to wait for the mixtape, let’s just say we’ll believe it when we see it.
As for Rocky, he’s recently been rumored to be attached to model Tina Kunakey. Paparazzi caught the rapper, who has also been linked to Kendall Jenner in the past, with his arm around Kunakey while they were out for a walk on a frigid day in New York.
