Don’t expect A$AP Rocky and SpaceGhostPurrp to dead their beef any time soon, or ever."F him, f--- him, straight up. He's one of those cats, like a lot of guys just hang around me, try to build hype, and when they dip off, start throwing dirt on the young on the blood," A$AP Rocky told MTV News of SpaceGhost on Sunday while he walked the red carpet at the 2012 BET Awards in Los Angeles. "They can't stop the pretty mother----er."
Over the past couple of weeks, Purrp — who produced Rocky's Internet favorite "Pretty Flacko" and rhymed alongside Rock on "Purple Swag: Chapter 2" — has been vocal about his distaste for the budding rap star and his A$AP Mob. After SGP accused Rocky's groupmate A$AP Twelvyy of jumping his Raider Klan affiliate Matt Stoops, SpaceGhost went on YouTube to vent. "We Raider Klan, man. We got our own sh-- going on. And that's how the f--- it is. We ain't A$AP," SpaceGhost said in the video, which has since been taken down. "I showed love to them n---as last year, and some sh-- went down, and we don't f--- with each other no more."
It used to be all good. Back in May, SGP sat with MTV News while he was in New York City promoting his debut album, Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp. At the time, there was no drama between his Raider Klan and A$AP Mob, but Purrp broke down how he came to know Rocky. "Me and the Mob, we reached out to each other through the Internet. We showed love to each other. We had a good time," he said of his A$AP relationship, which has since soured. "I came up to New York and met up with him, we got to know each other real well, and then we just became a little family.
"I'm affiliated with A$AP. If I see him, we still do our handshake, we still got love, we're real close homeys," he added.
Now it appears that all love is lost. In addition to the fight with Twelvyy, Ghost and his Raider Klan crew went on to charge that the A$AP Mob took a big chunk of their swag from the Miami collective. Not the case, says Rocky. "At the end of the day, he know what it is, and he tryin' to lie to people pumpin' that we took styles from him," the "Peso" MC said. "I mean, if you really look at it, the proof is in the pudding. He's corny at the end of the day. Stick to makin' beats, that's all I gotta say."
