A$AP Rocky gave fans some fresh beats during his headlining gig at Rolling Loud Miami, and he might have thrown some shade at Travis Scott.
Rocky unveiled three new tracks from his upcoming album, “Don’t Be Dumb.”
He didn’t hold back when calling out an unnamed artist he believes has been ripping off his style.
And let’s just say, there are a few clues that point to Travis being the target.
A$AP Rocky Was Lyrically Merciless About Travis Scott
“First you stole my flow, so I stole yo b***h… then you stole my style I need at least like 10%”

According to TMZ, Rocky was all grins as he let his lyrical zingers fly.
“First you stole my flow, so I stole your bitch/Then you stole my style, I need at least like 10 percent/ All due disrespect, I hope you take offense!!!”
Currently, the rapper is expecting his second child with Rihanna.
But rewind to 2015, and Rihanna and Travis were an item.
Coincidentally, that’s about the same time Rocky and Travis started butting heads.
It was also in 2015 when Travis lost his cool after being mistaken for Rocky in NYC.
Rocky believes this incident is entirely on Travis.
Fast forward to last year, and Rocky publicly stated he felt Travis had copied his entire style.
But he didn’t seem too bothered by the imitation, referring to the Astroworld rapper’s mimicry as flattery.
However, Rocky’s tune has changed, and he’s using the controversy to hype up “DBD.”
Travis, on the other hand, has his project to promote.
During his Rolling Loud set, he announced that his much-anticipated “Utopia” album will drop on Friday.
A$AP Rocky and Travis Scott are gearing up for a battle of the beats.
And while we’re all for a bit of competition, let’s hope it stays friendly.
After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
