A$AP Rocky Talks Mos Def Recording Under His Old Name & Doing Shrooms With Wiz Khalifa (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) On his latest album At.Long.Last.A$AP, A$AP Rocky managed to get veteran emcee Yasiin Bey to return to his roots and perform under the name Mos Def. The man born Dante Smith dropped the Mos Def moniker in 2012, and he had not done much musical work since that time.

A.L.L.A. features Mos on the the closing cut “Back Home.” A$AP Rocky spoke with DJ Whoo Kid about collaborating with the Brooklyn legend.

“He was Mos Def when he was rapping. He wasn’t Yasiin Bey,” said Rocky. “Mos is an artist. Mos will start rapping for no reason.”

The A$AP Mob member also talked about his experiences doing drugs with Wiz Khalifa. Wiz claimed Rocky ran away from a “blunt challenge” which led Rocky to address his rap peer’s accusations.

“I don’t know what’s wrong with Wiz, and I don’t know what’s wrong with Snoop [Dogg]. I don’t know what’s wrong with Chris Brown and all these n*ggas. These n*ggas been on the West Coast too long and these n##### want to smoke too much,” Rocky stated.

According to Rocky, he told the Taylor Gang leader he would go blunt for blunt, but Wiz responded that he does not smoke blunts, only papers. While Rocky admitted he had trouble handling Wiz’s dab, the “L$D” rapper got Wiz back when he got him to do mushrooms for the first time.

“Since he put me on blast for being a punk cause I couldn’t take the dab – even though that was three years ago – that’s cool. Now I gotta put him on blast,” added Rocky. “I give him the shrooms. We go to the after-party. Your man is leaning. He’s like, ‘Oh sh*t, I see it now man. I feel it. You see the light right there, it’s f*cking bending.'”
