Vince Staples is speaking out against this year’s MTV Video Music Awards host, after Cyrus commented on hip-hop heavyweight Kendrick Lamar in a pre-VMAs interview with Marie Claire.

“There is so much sexism, ageism, you name it,” Cyrus said. “Kendrick Lamar sings about LSD and he’s cool. I do it and I’m a druggie whore.”

Staples didn’t take kindly to the remark, and offered up a reality check for the 22-year-old star.

“She didn’t know who she was talking about,” he said in an interview with i-D. “Kendrick Lamar doesn’t have a song about LSD – that’s A$AP Rocky. So is it either you don’t know what you’re talking about or is it all black people look alike? Either one is fine with me but shut the fuck up Miley Cyrus.”

(Crying 😂)

I don’t fuck with Miley Cyrus. I don’t like what Miley Cyrus said about Kendrick Lamar. She needs to say sorry. It was very salty. Hasn’t she got some Disney money to spend? She should be very happy. I think she confused him with someone else.”

“She didn’t know who she was talking about. Kendrick Lamar doesn’t have a song about LSD — that’s A$AP Rocky. So is it either you don’t know what you’re talking about or is it all black people look alike? Either one is fine with me but shut the fuck up Miley Cyrus. I love Taylor Swift because she got a little bit of my publishing back with that whole Apple Music thing she did. Anyone who has a problem with Taylor Swift, I’m supporting her because I’m trying to buy a home right now.
