A$AP Rocky is known for his trendsetting style and love for designer labels, but he’s done dropping names on his songs. The Harlem rapper is pumping the brakes on his showy rhymes.

“I am gonna do that,” Pretty Flacko told Amanda Seales during an interview on “MTV’s Hip Hop POV.” “I’m putting too [many] people on the game when I do that.”

She questioned him about his single “Goldie,” which was originally named “Cristal” after the champagne. Jay-Z called for a boycott of the pricey bubbly after the company made disparaging comments about hip-hop.

“It’s called ‘Crissy’ and it’s basically a mockery towards it. It’s to get them upset,” explained A$AP of the Hit-Boy-produced record. “If you listen to the lyrics, ‘Cristal by the cases/ Wait, hold up that was racist/ I would prefer the Aces/ Ain’t no different when you taste it’—we don’t even fu**in’ care about champagne, we drink 40s.”
