The good folks over at MTV caught up A$AP Rocky yesterday at Lollapalooza 2015 and asked for his opinion on the whole Meek Mill vs. Drake feud. When asked about the potential of Drake having a ghostwriter, Rocky had this to say:

“If you ask me if that matters, or if the public cares, that’s two different questions. I think that it doesn’t matter at this point for the public — they seem like they don’t care. I don’t know. To me it matters.”

Rocky also touched on the bigger picture of it all and what it meant for hip-hop:

“Watching this was like watching the Super Bowl. I wanna say thank you to Drake and Meek Mill, because that’s good sportsmanship…for real, that sh*t was fun. I needed that. To see that, that’s good sportsmanship.”

And despite the public going in on social media with the memes and such, Rocky had some insightful words for Meek Mill:

“I think Meek will be fine..I think he has a fanbase of his own, and I think that at the end of the day, there had to be a loser in the outcome, and it was Meek. So it is what it is.”

In closing, Rocky puts it like this:

“If somebody helped Drake, I dunno, that might be considered cheating, but whoever wrote that — not saying Drake ain’t write it, I’m quite sure he did — that sh-t was insane. That sh-t was incredible, and I wanna thank Drake and Meek Mill for such a good battle. I come from an old school aesthetic — me being 26 — coming from the point of, when I was coming up, it was all about writing your rhymes, and I’m quite sure for R&B songs, if someone’s giving you lyrics, that’s nothing. I don’t know. I would have to see. I don’t know what to believe….Regardless of if Drake write his sh-t or not, I’m still a fan.”
