A$AP Rocky offered fellow rapper Tyler, the Creator with a prestigious honor at MoMA on Wednesday night time — however he recalled there was as soon as dangerous blood between them.
“It’s an honor to current this award to my greatest pal right now, however little do y’all know that I hate that motherf–ker, that’s the fact,” ASAP Rocky joked at the WSJ. Journal 2019 Innovator Awards. He then admitted, “He’s one in all my inspirations … [and] individuals don’t know this, however once we first got here into the rap sport, we didn’t even like one another. Our crews didn’t like one another.”
For the uninitiated: Rocky comes from New York’s rap unit A$AP Mob, whereas Tyler is related to the LA collective Odd Future. Their crews’ feud flared in 2011 when Tyler reportedly commented on-line a few video directed by Rocky: “The time period Video Director is thrown round very loosely [nowadays].”
After additional verbal provocations by Tyler, Rocky mentioned in a 2013 interview, “He has his opinions and he’s entitled to them, so it’s no matter.”
However by 2015, they had been on tour collectively and collaborating on music.
Tyler was named the night time’s Music Innovator.
Additionally at the WSJ. Journal awards had been Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, Julianne Moore, Riccardo Tisci, Tory Burch, Joseph Altuzarra, Jason Wu, and WSJ. Journal editor Kristina O’Neill and writer Anthony Cenname.
