A$AP Rocky shared this thoughts on the Drake vs. Meek Mill debate in an interview with MTV over the weekend. The Harlem rapper was excited by the exchange. “Watching this was like watching the Super Bowl,” he noted. “I wanna say thank you to Drake and Meek Mill, because that’s good sportsmanship. For real, that shit was fun. I needed that.”

Though he made sure to say that he remains a Drake fan, Rocky also suggested he’s not comfortable with rappers using ghostwriters. “If you ask me if that matters, or if the public cares, that’s two different questions,” he said. “I think that it doesn’t matter at this point for the public—they seem like they don’t care. I don’t know. To me it matters… I come from an old school aesthetic… when I was coming up, it was all about writing your rhymes.”

Finally, Rocky declared Drake the winner of the beef. “I think Meek will be fine. I think he has a fanbase of his own, and I think that at the end of the day, there had to be a loser in the outcome, and it was Meek…If somebody helped Drake, I dunno, that might be considered cheating, but whoever wrote [“Back To Back”]—not saying Drake ain’t write it, I’m quite sure he did—that shit was insane. That shit was incredible, and I wanna thank Drake and Meek Mill for such a good battle.”
