While it’s no secret that A$AP Rocky’s debut album Long.Live.A$AP has leaked, the young emcee is taking a positive approach to the matter.

“I’ve been waiting for people to hear this music for so damn long,” admitted Rocky in an interview with Hot 97’s Miss Info. “Of course I’ve gotta be a businessman, but before anything I’m an artist. The album leaked, and I’ma leave it up to my dependable label, which I rely on to fix all that. That’s the business aspect. I made my art, y’all love it, and that’s all I care about, and I just wanna thank everybody who was anticipating this.”

Additionally, Rocky addressed his A$AP crew’s individual success.

“That’s what I wanted from the jump,” explained the Harlem rapper. “I wanted everybody to shine individually. I just wanted it to be organic. We all came up together, and everybody had individual talent. It’s not just me. Anybody could tell you, walking up and down these streets… everybody always fucked with us because there was always something about us that was interesting.”
