Harlem’s own A$AP Rocky recently sat down for an interview with HardKnockTV and the rapper gave some rather impassioned soundbites on topics we usually don’t hear his opinion on, such as homophobia, homeless-ness, and interracial dating.

In reality he’s dealt with a number of these very issues. Rocky was honest about his temporary stay at a homeless shelter with his mother and sister and talked about dealing hip-hop’s homophobic views. The ASAP capo recognizes the flaws in his own past views.
