During A$AP Rocky's interview with Angie Martinez of Hot 97, he spoke on the topic of overused and played out trends within the hip hop community. He thinks that many hip hop artists need to start using new ideas when putting together their videos, because it's all becoming the same thing - money, cars, clothes, alcohol, and women. The only thing different is the actual artist in the videos.
"See, the thing is, I love my people, never get it twisted. People - Hip Hop - we've gotta stop whoring out trends. Anytime something get hot, we overdo it. Like the Versace thing, all the chains, sunglasses, and the True Religion. Just hang it up. Just let it go. I'm serious. And I'm tired of the Hip Hop videos with the same thing in it. Just money, champagne, girls, and making it rain, and ice, and sunglasses. And foreign cars. I'm tired of it."
