A$AP Ferg links up with The Breakfast Club on Power 105 for an exclusive one-on-one interview. The A$AP Mob member discusses the origins of his alias and shares his experience with riding along on Wiz Khalifa’s Under The Influence of Music Tour. Ferg shares his appreciation for the amount of weed they’re given from state to state and addresses his eyebrow raising comment about Teyanna Taylor at Summer Jam. Fergenstein also breaks down the early days of A$AP and reveals why a deal with Diddy was never worked out.
A$AP Ferg delivers a new track off his anticipated Trap Lord LP with “Hood Pope”. The song showcases Ferg’s signature choppy and sped up flow over a smooth beat that takes fans for a slow ride while the A$AP Mob member drops some haunting crooning and kicks rhymes about fearing death from his enemies, demons and proclaiming himself the trap lord. Produced by VeryRvre, the mellow cut is also packed with plenty of reflective bars and religious references as Fergenstein attempts to make sense of his situation. Trap Lord hits shelves on August 20.
As A$AP Ferg’s Trap Lord LP approaches its August 20 release date, the Harlem native decides to reveal the project’s official artwork. Keeping it simple, the trap lord is showcased with a side profile in a black and white photo. If you look closely to the detail you can also see what appears to be a crucifix just above Ferg’s head.
A$AP Mob member A$AP Ferg sits down with Fuse and discusses his inspiration behind his latest visual for his new single “Shabba”. Ferg opens up about his appreciation for ’90s music and acknowledges Jamaican Dancehall artist, Shabba Ranks, as one of his earlier influences. In fact, Ferg’s new music video for “Shabba” is meant to portary Ranks’ gaudy and lavish lifestyle. Directed by A$AP Rocky, conceptually the video shows Ferg and company sneaking into Ranks’ home and helping themselves to his amenities, clothes and women. Before calling it a wrap, Ferg speaks on being inspired by artists like Bone Thug-N-Harmony and speaks highly of the energy they bring to the studio.
The Trap Lord A$AP Ferg finally gives his new single “Shabba” featuring A$AP Rocky the visual treatment. The odd video almost resembles something out of an episode of The Addams Family. Showcasing the entire A$AP mob and some pretty young things, Ferg and company party it up in an old looking house and even hit up Snoop from The Wire to come kick it. Trap Lord is set to drop on August 20.
Ferg’s Trap Lord debut is set to release later this year and I have to tell you that I can’t wait! I knew this guy was going to shine. He’s a stand out act and when the mob’s project dropped he stood out.
