In the third installment of A$AP Mob’s AWGE DVD, Yasiin Bey throws his two cents in on controversial rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine. While watching 6ix9ine’s video for his breakout hit “GUMMO,” an unimpressed Bey looks bored to tears.
“Why everybody acting like this is new,” Bey says in the clip. “This is a version of the same old shit.”
Shortly after watching the video, he’s heard saying, “This is the most depressing shit I’ve ever seen in my life.”
Since the 2017 release of “GUMMO,” 6ix9ine’s stock has continued to rise. On Tuesday (July 24), Nicki Minaj — who recently teamed up with him in the “FEFE” video — announced he’s joining her and Future on the monster NICKIHNDRXX Tour.
Meanwhile, Bey — formerly known as Mos Def — is getting ready to perform with Talib Kweli as Black Star on July 31 in Morrison, Colorado at the historic Red Rock Amphitheater.
For the past five months, rumors have been circulating that Black Star is releasing a new album after Bey mentioned it during a Denver show. However, in an interview with HipHopDX, Kweli said it was news to him. Whether it will materialize remains to be seen.
