West Coast rapper Yukmouth may have opened a can of worms by going off on a mini-tirade against the music industry and notably rap rookies A$AP Rocky and Trinidad James.
While Yuk initially talked about the music industry catering toward gay culture, he then singled out New York rapper A$AP Rocky.
“I don’t hold my tongue back for anything — I just think the whole industry is hella gay right now,” Yuk said in an interview. “It’s like the more gayer you are, the more skinnier your jeans is — if you too gangsta for this sh*t, they ain’t f*cking with you. Period. Now if you do some corny gimmick sh*t and you got the gayest sh*t going on in life. The n*gga had the gay dress on, what’s the n*gga’s name? A$AP Rocky. He had a dress on with some motherf*cking leg warmers with some Pippi Longstocking boots and he’s winning. He’s the top n*gga right now. The gayer you are, the more you win.” (Murder Master Music Show)
He made sure to also put Trinidad James on the hot seat with some dicey comments.
“Trinidad James, I don’t give a f*ck, that first video, he was gay as sh*t,” Yuk added, referring to James’ “All Gold Everything” music video. “That leopard shirt open, gay. The way that n*gga was rubbing on that thug? Gay. Everything’s gay. Period. I don’t give a f*ck. That n*gga had no [shirt] with the backpack on. Man t*tties, gay. Gay. I don’t give a f*ck. It wasn’t all gay, but he had some gay moments.” (Murder Master Music Show)
Back in December, Rocky came forward to kill speculation of him being a cross-dresser.
“I was just on ‘106 & Park’ the other day with an oversized shirt on and everybody talkin’ about I wore a dress,” Rocky said, clearing up the rumor when he appeared on “RapFix Live” as a part of MTV’s Big and Best of 2012. “That’s foul and mine was long-sleeve. … If fashion is your life and that’s what you like and that’s what you’re about, express yourself, wear what you want and nothing matters, nobody else opinions matte. Be the person that starts the trend. You’re gonna have times where people, they gonna try to joke on you, they’re gonna try to play you and all that, that just comes with life. You gotta keep it striving’ and always know that if they’re talkin’ you doin’ somethin’ right.” (MTV)
No stranger to confrontations, Yuk recently put Southern rapper Plies on blast.
Yukmouth and his Regime get at Plies on his new diss record, entitled “Charles Bronson.” The Oakland rapper opens with a parody of Plies’ latest music video, “Low Miles,” before busting in with his goons and taking him hostage. On “Charles Bronson,” Yuk calls out Plies while point to his educational background, rapping: “B*tch, you live the class life / But he screaming ‘trap life.'” What started the beef between Yukmouth and Plies was unknown at press time.
