A$AP Rocky Covers Complex’ April/May 2015 Issue

Written by Nigel D. / 03.30.15


Rocky on racial tension in America:

“It’s fucked up. That’s all it is. Cops killing people, people killing cops. It’s all fucked up. I think it’ll all change soon. I think people with a badge—or not—are gonna stop abusing authority across the world, and learn to appreciate one another. For real. [Smiles.] All they need is weed, some love, some good sex, some good-ass music.”

On criticism of ex-girlfriend, rapper Iggy Azalea:

“It comes with the game. If she fake on something, somebody is going to call her bluff. That’s life.”

“[It's] unfortunate because nobody wants to be portrayed that way. I’m quite sure she doesn’t. I think she works hard like the rest of us. Silly or not, 300 million people like to watch it on YouTube, so who the fuck are we to say anything?”

“I’m not looking at her from a standpoint of ‘I used to be boning this chick’s back out.’ I’m looking at it [as]: She’s a just a person. You can’t bluff. You gotta just be 100. That’s all I could really say. The question is: Was she not being 100 about something?”

On dissing Hood By Air and Been Trill:

“I’m taking full credit for Hood By Air, for anyone knowing anything. Yes. I’m taking credit for that. I liked it when I was way younger. It had a little run here and there, but nobody ever really kicked it off. I knew Shayne [Oliver] on a personal note. I was like: ‘Yo, let’s bring this shit back.’ It took me years. Shayne’s stubborn.”

Lil Wayne Speaks On “Tha Carter V” & The “Free Weezy Album”

Written by Nigel D. / 02.19.15

Lil Wayne

Wayne says that Tha Carter V, which he finished recording some time ago, is on ice for now. “It’s super-done,” he says. “Cake baked, icing on top, name on top, candles lit. I would have released it yesterday if I could. But it’s a dead subject right now. It’s a jewel in the safe. It’s that stash-house money.”

In the meantime, he’s been putting in 12-hour studio shifts on an all-new project: the cleverly titled The Free Weezy Album, which he plans to release for free in March. “I’m working on it every day, man,” he says. “I guarantee it’s going to be something dope. If you don’t want a musician being creative, don’t get The Free Weezy Album.”

Full Interview: Rolling Stone

Lil Wayne speaks on his legal issues with Cash Money and upcoming projects with Rolling Stone. Looks like “Tha Carter V” won’t be coming out anytime soon but the “Free Weezy Album” will drop in March.
