The West Coast hitmaker says he's working with Spears on her 9th album.

Ever since A$AP Rocky‘s A.L.L.A. LP dropped back in May, all anyone could talk about was that vitriolic “Better Things” diss the rapper fired at former hookup, Rita Ora. Now, almost two months later, he is now taking it all back.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the “L$D” artist spoke up about the sexually explicit line (“I swear that bitch Rita Ora got a big mouth / Next time I see her might curse the bitch out”). “The Rita thing was tasteless of me. [But] I’ve got to stand by it, because I did it. I said it,” A$AP Rocky stated.

He continued, “Who gives a fuck about who I’m fucking? Nobody really cares. It’s fun to hear, but who really gives a fuck about who Rita Ora’s fucking?” Well, there’s that!

Along with Rita Ora, A$AP Rocky also discusses the loss of A$AP Yams:

“I’ve been having to do that [re-evaluate] since he died, man. It’s going to have to be that way. It was always good to have that second opinion because I always knew what I wanted to do. To have my best friend there agreeing with me, let me knew I wasn’t crazy. Because my main concern was like: ‘Did I lose it, am I crazy, man?’ He kept me sane because he used to humble me even at the height of my career when people would try to reach out and try to do songs or talk shit. He’d be like: ‘Don’t shit on them because it’s a waste of energy.”
