A$AP Rocky is on the cover of the April/May 2015 issue of Complex, and he has a lot to talk about — specifically dissing Hood By Air in his song, “Multiply.”

“The people behind the brands didn’t acknowledge me as a pioneer because I didn’t sit down and create the name Hood By Air with Shayne [Oliver],” Rocky said. “I’m taking full credit for that brand, 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 on a personal note. I was like: ‘Yo, let’s bring this s**t back.’ It took me years. Shayne’s stubborn. He’d give me a sweater one year, a t-shirt one year. It was like that. I have a lot of shit from back in the day, and I’d say after ‘Peso’–because we have Hood By Air in the ‘Peso’ video–by the time it hit 2012, 2013, he was ready. Because I was out there in the field. I just made that s**t look jiggy.”

The rapper also discusses the criticism ex-girlfriend Iggy Azalea has received during her career so far, and new music from his upcoming album, At.Long.Last.A$AP. What do you think about Rocky’s statement on Hood By Air, and are you excited to hear his new album? Sound off in the comments section.
