I just found it odd that MTV wanted to stand me next to this nigga when they are talking about gay people, that’s all. You know what I’m saying?

from A$AP Rocky – Apology to Jason Collins on Rap Genius

Meaning

It was going so well...

Rocky starts to hedge a little.

Rocky has stated multiple times in the past that he has no problem with homosexuality, but with his entry into fashion, some people started talking about his sexuality. Crew mate A$AP Ferg explained to Complex after Rocky’s BET “dress” episode:

A$AP is comfortable being black sheep. We were always weirdos. We wanted to be unique. People didn’t accept us in Harlem. They were scared to stand next to Jeremy Scott. Why? Because he’s gay? He’s one of the best designers of our generation. When Rocky wore the Ann Demeulemeester shirt on BET, people called it a dress. It’s some high fashion sh*t, a $30,000 long-sleeve shirt. We’re on that different type of fly. People who call us gay just aren’t open-minded.

The fact that MTV put him at the same time as Collins might have made him think that they were associating him with homosexuality. Rocky felt that he was put on display, so he tried to distance himself from Jason; hence the inappropriate “facial expressions.”
