A$AP Rocky Fans Think He Dissed Travis Scott Over Rihanna Fling On New Song

A$AP Rocky debuted new music from his upcoming album Don’t De Dumb at Rolling Loud Miami this past weekend — and some fans believe he was taking shots at Travis Scott on one of the tracks. Perched above the crowd on a set of metal stairs with several iced-out hair clips in his braids, Pretty Flacko took aim at an unnamed rival while performing a song called “Taylor Swift,” which hears him brag about stealing their “bitch” as payback for biting his style.

“First you stole my flow, so I stole your bitch/ Then you stole my style, I need at least like 10 percent/ All due disrespect, I hope you take offense,” he raps on the hard-hitting track.

Although Rocky’s subliminal shots came without a name, that didn’t stop fans from speculating that Travis Scott was the intended target.

“Travis Scott diss,” one Twitter user insisted. “Travis did run with Asap style a couple of albums ago.”

“This a nasty Travis jab lmaoo,” another said.

Rumors of friction between A$AP Rocky and Travis Scott have circulated for years, stemming from claims that La Flame borrowed his drugged-out sound and fashion-forward style from Pretty Flacko.

In 2016, A$AP Mob member A$AP Nast accused Scott of stealing the crew’s swag, an allegation that Rocky himself addressed in a Hot 97 interview that same year. “Let the people decide if he is a biter or if he is authentic,” he said.

Travis, meanwhile, lunged at someone back in 2015 after they mistook him for the “Purple Swag” rapper. “I’m not muthafucking A$AP, bitch!” he snapped while stepping to the fan.

Rocky’s “stole your bitch” line may be a reference to La Flame’s rumored 2015 fling with Rihanna, who is currently expecting child number two with the Harlem rapper.

Other fans speculated that A$AP Rocky’s “Taylor Swift” jabs could’ve been directed at Chris Brown, who dated RiRi between 2007 and 2009 before his violent attack on her ended their relationship. Rocky previously appeared to diss Breezy on his 2022 single “D.M.B.,” rapping: “I don’t beat my bitch, I need my bitch.”

Some were convinced that Rocky was instead dissing Drake, who has made no secret of his crush on Rihanna in the past. “She’s someone I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old,” he admitted while presenting her with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2016 MTV VMAs.

When Rihanna announced she was pregnant with her and A$AP Rocky’s first child last year, Drizzy didn’t appear to take the news well as he unfollowed both artists on Instagram.

Unlike Travis Scott, however, Drake and Chris Brown share few similarities with Rocky when it comes to their “flow” and “style.”

Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky resumed the rollout for Don’t Be Dumb last week by dropping a new single, “RIOT (Rowdy Pipe’n),” co-produced by himself and Pharrell.

The song followed the aforementioned “D.M.B.” and January’s “Same Problems?” which featured contributions from Lil Yachty, Miguel, and Thundercat.

A release date for the album has yet to be announced.
