Posted August 04, 2018 07:50:50A new video from Brooklyn’s A$AP Mob’s upcoming album, “I Am Bored,” has sparked some controversy on social media, with the rapper tweeting a message to his followers about the video that was posted to Instagram.
In the video, which was released Wednesday, the rapper says he’s not sure what he wants from life after being hit by an SUV on the road last weekend.
“I’m still stuck in traffic,” he says.
“We’re trying to figure it out.”
He adds that he’s also not sure if he wants to spend more time in jail.
“What are you going to do when you’re still stuck?” he asks.
“It’s like, are you gonna get a job?”
After the video went viral on Twitter and Instagram, many fans took to Twitter to voice their displeasure, calling him a hypocrite and saying he shouldn’t have to worry about the consequences of his actions.
“If you’re not careful, it’s like an addiction,” one person tweeted.
“This is a dangerous place to be, man.”
Another said, “Don’t worry about what he thinks he wants, or he will go crazy.”
The rapper has not yet responded to The Huffington Post’s request for comment.
The video was first posted on August 4 on Instagram by a man named James Tompkins, who said he was driving on West 125th Street near Broadway when the SUV came up to him and hit him.
Tompkin later uploaded a video of the incident to Instagram, but it didn’t show the crash.
It did show the driver being taken into custody.
In an interview with TMZ in March, Tompkins said he started getting phone calls from people who thought he was in the news for being the only rapper in the world to be hit by another car.
“They said, ‘He’s in jail for a crime.
He should have known better,'” Tompksy said.
“That’s a little bit of a double standard.”
A$AP said that it was “very upset” about the viral video and posted a statement to Instagram that read, “A$ap Mob is disappointed to see that anyone would believe what A$ap has said.
The music video he posted to his Instagram account is in no way a reflection of the true feelings of A$app Mob or his community.””
We do not condone or endorse what A&P Mob has said about our community, or what the media has portrayed,” the statement continued.
“A&.;P Mob will not be holding any content and/or activities in New York City until the matter is resolved.
The community of New York has been hurt by the statements of A&ap Mob, and they need to respect the sentiments of their community.
It is time for A&p Mob to focus on what’s important: their community, their music, and their business.
A&P Mob’s community has not been affected by the incidents in New Jersey and Staten Island.”
A&P’s album is scheduled for release on September 21.
