In his 2012 track Goldie, A$AP Rocky raps about champagne.
"Cristal go by the cases, wait hold up that was racist
I would prefer the Aces, ain't no different when you taste it
A 40 ounce to chase it, that's just a understatement, he spits.
As Rocky explains in his new Drink Champ's interview, he didn't know JAY-Z owned Ace of Spades (Armand de Brignac) when he spit those bars.
According to Rocky, Hov wasn't too happy with the reference. But instead of speaking to Rocky, Jay got the message to him through his A$AP crew.
“Nah, he saw some lil’ A$AP n*ggas back in the day,” Rocky said when NORE asked him if Hov confronted him.. “He seen like A$AP Bari and them. He called them to the side and was like, ‘Yo, come here. Yo, Let me holla at y’all.’ That's was like my first that was out. He was like, ‘So, your mans. What’s up with that line?’ ‘Cause I might’ve said some crazy sh*t like ‘sip Cris and fuck Ace.’ I didn’t know it was owned by the n*gga.”
