A$AP Rocky’s set to break his 5-year album hiatus soon … but he’s not exactly thrilled about the comeback.The A$AP Mob rapper thinks today’s hip hop space is marred, on account of the constant deaths and brewing competition from other genres. Rocky was speaking on his desire to have his art at the forefront, but acknowledged the string of rapper deaths is affecting him.

Migos’ star Takeoff, PnB Rock, JayDaYoungan and Trouble all died violently this year … seriously sucking the joy out of the culture

Rocky told Complex, “It’s such a really weird time for hip hop … we’re losing so many legends.”Rap has consistently dominated charts for the past few years, but 2022 saw Bad Bunny and Taylor Swift amongst the top streamers, with Drake being the only frequent representative for hip hop on the lists.

Rocky continued, “Pop is fighting for the number one spot, as far the most predominant genre. It’s a really weird time right now. I don’t really care for the politics of it. I just want to give motherfuckers some dope shit

Rocky’s comeback has begun to rev up — courtesy of the new “Need For Speed” video game which features his new song/video mashup, “Shi**in’ Me.”
