Vince Staples says that Miley Cyrus should apologize for comparing herself to Kendrick Lamar.
“I don’t fuck with Miley Cyrus,” the Long Beach, California rapper says to i-D. “I don’t like what Miley Cyrus said about Kendrick Lamar. She needs to say sorry. It was very salty. Hasn’t she got some Disney money to spend? She should be very happy.”
Cyrus, who spent six years acting as the main character on the Disney Channel show Hannah Montana, said last month that her content is similar to Lamar’s, but she gets treated differently.
“Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool,” she said. “I do it and I’m a druggie whore.”
Staples says that the actress was mistaken in her assessment.
“She didn’t know who she was talking about,” the 22-year-old says. “Kendrick Lamar doesn’t have a song about LSD. That’s A$AP Rocky. So is it either you don’t know what you’re talking about or is it all black people look alike?”
Staples released his debut album, Summertime ’06, in June.
