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$AP Mob took a big chunk of their swag from the Miami collective. Not the case, says Rocky. “At the end of the day, he know what it is, and he tryin’ to lie to people pumpin’ that we took styles from him,” the “Peso” MC said. “I mean, if you really look at it, the proof is in the pudding. He’s corny at the end of the day. Stick to makin’ beats, that’s all I gotta say.”
Do you think SpaceGhostPurrp and A$AP Rocky can work out their differences? Sound off in the comments!
CRAZYYYYYYYYYYYY! They came hard with this one. Must get that G.O.O.D. Music compilation (Cruel Summer) album when it drops August 7. West KILLED an acappella verse to his newly ‘New God Flow’ joint at the BET Awards on Sunday night. The track is assisted by label signee, Pusha T (The Clipse), who starts it off.
Check out Kanye West ft. Pusha T, ‘New God Flow’ below.
Frank Ocean Comes Out The closet
Frank Ocean, the r&b singer and member of Odd Future posted a message from his Twitter acct @Frank_Ocean that’s spreading like wildfire. check it out… click on image below to enlarge!!
Is this a publicity stunt to sell records or is he really admitting that he is gay or bisexual. If so, I wonder how would this effect his career as an artist? Will Odd future’s Tyler The Creator come out the closet also? lol!!! Personally, I think his sexual preference is own personal business. In this country, we have so many other issues that are much more important like: the struggling economy, high crime rate, and education just to name a few. That’s just my opinion, what’s yours?

Everyone loves a good competition, but when it comes to Chris Brown versus Drake and the dis track that Breezy released over the weekend, some of the superstars closest friends are calling for a truce.
“Nobody wants to see them beef,” Tyga told MTV News while on the red carpet for the 2012 BET Awards on Sunday (July 1). “They both make great music, they’re both talented, but at the end of the day, as men, they have to figure out what they want to do.”
Tyga, who is a part of Lil Wayne’s Young Money crew alongside Drake, has been a longtime friend and collaborator of Chris Brown’s. In 2010, Tyga and Breezy dropped their collaborative Fan of a Fan mixtape, so T-Raw is kind of stuck in the middle. “Chris is my brother, Drake is family too, so it’s like at the end of the day, they gotta handle that like men,” he said. “It’s like nobody else can mediate that, and it’s like that’s how it goes sometimes.”
On June 14, Brown and Drake’s respective entourages got into a bottle-throwing brawl at a New York City nightclub, and on Saturday, Breezy dissed Drake in a rap freestyle over Chief Keef’s popular “I Don’t Like” instrumental. “One on one, what you scared, bruh?/ Matter fact, Take Care, bruh,” Chris spit, referencing both the melee and the title of Drizzy’s sophomore album.
G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T, who was in Los Angeles recording with Brown this weekend, applauded the Virginia singer’s rap performance. “Chris is so artistic, man. He’s just a free spirit, so you just gotta like it and accept it for what it is,” Push said. “Lyrically, I think he gets busy. He’s a writer.”
Big Sean is also good friends with Brown, and while he hasn’t talked to him personally about the tiff with Drake, Sean urged his buddy to put the negativity behind him. “Hopefully they get it resolved, honestly, man. People ain’t got no time for no beef,” the Finally Famous lyricist said.
“People ain’t got no time to be beefin’. We workin’ too hard for our fam, for our kids, our unborn kids to have a bright future. Nobody got no time for that.”
Next time Sean gets to sit down with Chris, he will make sure to tell him that. “I’m real good friends with Chris. I’mma make sure I tell him that to his face,” he said.
Do you think Chris Brown and Drake should end their beef? Let us know in the comments.
