ASAP Rocky sat down for an interview recently where he addressed the controversial remarks he made about the Black Lives Matter movement years ago.
"I thought I addressed that in the past and to be in jail hearing people still trying to stir up some weird sh*t," he told Kerwin Frost.
"What I will say though is in those old interviews I used to say 'I think it's inappropriate for me to rap about things I didn't help with. I felt like when it came to Ferguson, J. Cole went down there and he actually was on the news, and he helped. I felt like he deserved to rap about it," he continued.
"I think what happened was real unfortunate. Wrong place, wrong time type sh*t," he explained. "I was talking to Meek, I was talking to a few people and they were like 'It goes to show you that even with money that sh*t can happen to you.' That experience just had me in jail thinking like 'Was I wrong? Damn, maybe I am wrong. Damn, maybe it is my fault.' You be in solitary confinement for so long."
Rocky was slammed in 2015 after he said the following during an interview with Time Out, "I don't wanna talk about no f*cking Ferguson and sh*t because I don't live over there. I live in f*cking SoHo and Beverly Hills. I can't relate," he said at the time. "I did not sign up to be no political activist. I wanna talk about my motherf*ckin' lean, my best friend dying, the girls that come in and out of my life, the jiggy fashion that I wear, my new inspirations in drugs! I don't wanna talk about no f*cking Ferguson and shit because I don't live over there! I live in f*cking Soho and Beverly Hills. I can't relate."
