HotNewHipHop reportedly sat down with Trippie and his team for an interview and touched base regarding “They Afraid Of You.” The site noted that the rapper was was hesitant to explain why exactly the song was taken down and even touched base with his publicist before responding: “I don’t know, you don’t think I should just leave it as theories? Hell yeah, I should just let them be theories, they can just come up with theories about Playboi Carti. We just gon’ leave ‘em in the blind.”
