After airing out Rita Ora on his At.Long.Last.A$AP album cut “Better Things,” A$AP Rocky appeared on SiriusXM on Wednesday (May 27) where he addressed the lyrics.
The Harlem rapper says he was in a relationship and cheated with Ora, whom he says told his girlfriend … on purpose.
“First off, it’s old. It’s an old song. What I will say is I got into a lot of trouble over her … at times when I didn’t need to,” Rocky said. “She caused a lot of grief, so at that time, for me… I said what I said.
“I got in trouble. That’s what I’mma say. When you get in trouble with women, I’m quite sure everybody can put two and two together. I got in trouble. I wasn’t supposed to be doing things with her. I got in trouble. Put it like that, and she got me [in trouble] on purpose. There’s girly stuff.”
When asked if he called her to tell her about the track before it was released, Rocky replied: “No, she didn’t get me no heads up.”
In a separate interview with the BBC, the rapper clarified that he doesn’t think Ora is a bad person, he’s simply telling the truth.
“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,” Rocky explained.
