The death of A$AP Yams has shook up much of the hip-hop community, and of course those who had working and personal relationships with the Mob co-founder were even more in shock. Over the weekend there was a memorial service for Yams in New York, as well as a private one for close friends and family. Everyone grieves in different ways, and while some artists have been outspoken on social media about the death of Yams, others, like A$AP Rocky, only spoke out recently.
Retchy P took to social media recently to grieve for Yams, however, he did so at the expense of fellow rappers. Retchy P wished death upon a few rappers in particular, saying that they should have died in the place of Yams. Specifically, he targeted Scaff Beezy (Nicki Minaj‘s ex-boyfriend/struggle rapper), Wale, Flo Rida and Roscoe Dash. “IT SHOULDA BEEN FLO RIDA,” he tweeted.
Wale caught wind of the death wish aimed at him, and called out Retchy P, pointing out that the two rappers don’t even know each other. Wale’s DMV brethren Fat Trel also stepped in on the rapper’s behalf.
After Retchy tweeted “SHOULDA BEEN WALE” (and then, “DEF WALE”), Wale responded back, “so I should b dead? U want me to die? Correct? U don’t know me but wish death to me.” Retchy P hit back, “DEF, WOULD SWAP U OUT FOR MY MANS IN A HEARTBEAT.”
Folarin continued tweeting at him, “yeah and Id swap U out for a hunnit good men I lost. U wish death on people.. U a different kind of nigga . Enjoy your evening.”
Retchy then told Wale to “do suttin” when they cross paths, “IM A SICK KID WHAT CAN I SAY, DO SUTTIN WHEN U SEE ME I BE OUTSIDE.”
