A$AP Rocky has given a controversial new interview, in which he states he believes Bill Cosby is innocent of accusations of sexual assault.
The rapper appeared on Stateside radio show The Breakfast Club, and stated that thinks the comedian is innocent. Rocky said: “He did so many positive things leading up to one thing, which he was convicted of being innocent for, by the way. People don’t even speak about that. All you remember is the 56 women and all that kind of shit.”
Host Charlamagne Tha God quickly pointed out that 56 different accusations builds an extremely damning case. Rocky replied: “Yeah, but he’s a powerful man. Look, I’m not his lawyer, but I do know he’s innocent. In the eyes of the law, they said he’s innocent. So, nobody talks about that. All we know is that he was accused, he allegedly raped however many woman he raped which, it’s so much issues in the world, you know what I’m saying?”
The rapper also caused a stir through his chastening words on the Black Lives Matter movement. He said: “I hate when the bandwagon stuff starts. How come black lives only matter when a police officer takes it? It should matter when a black life takes it. It should always matter. All lives matter.”
“I want to inspire. I want promote peace, because at a time like this, I don’t have all the answers. I’m not trying to run for Congress. I’m not trying to run for office. I don’t have all the answers.”
