The Black Friday festivities continued when Justin Timberlake dropped this remix of his latest single. JT turns to hip hop with the help of J. Cole, A$AP Rocky and Pusha T and they fittingly spit aggressive, knockout verses. Cole comes out swinging, responding to Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse while sporting Drake’s flow on “Versace.” Rocky hops in next and quiets the rumors and talk surrounding his life. Pusha closes by making his claim for album of the year.

A$AP Twelvy Interview with Sole Collector

by @Djordje

twelvyy_BW copy

Growing up in New York, two things were almost guaranteed to influence the A$AP Mob. Fashion and music.

For A$AP Twelvy, both became a huge part of his life early on. Using his rapping skills to make a name for himself alongside A$AP Rocky and the rest of the A$AP rap collective, Twelvy’s extensive footwear knowledge quickly became just as evident with everything from early LeBrons, to Uptowns and classic Jordans on his feet as he rocked the mic.

Currently on the road with A$AP Ferg and the rest of the Mob, Twelvy recently linked up with Sole Collector to share with us what’s been on his feet as of late, his earliest footwear memories, and even who he says has the illest sneaker stash in the Mob.

A$AP Ferg Q&A with Miami New Times

by @Djordje

800px-Asap-ferg

The world got its first taste of Fergenstein on Live. Love. A$AP., the purple-tinged, codeine-soaked 2011 debut mixtape from New York newcomer A$AP Rocky. The tape ushered in Rocky as a breath of fresh air in the hip-hop game and introduced A$AP as not just a young collective of adventurous New York MCs, but a full-blown trilled-out lifestyle brand. On the track “Kissin’ Pink,” A$AP Mob member Ferg infused the tape with one of its most standout moments, a cheeky, Dirty South-flavored, half sung verse that left us wanting more.

Born Darold Ferguson, 25-year-old A$AP Ferg hails from Harlem, where his father used to design and sell his own clothing line to a crew of luminaries like Puff Daddy and Biggie. A hustler and renaissance man in his own right, when the self-proclaimed Hood Pope says his debut album Trap Lord will “change your life,” he means it. While most MCs are hasty to put out a mixtape, Ferg and his crew are adamant about quality over quantity. Make no mistake; Trap Lord is a fully-formed powerhouse. He’s making a name for himself with heavy-hitting anthems like “Work” and “Shabba,” and is currently headlining a U.S. tour in support of this critically acclaimed debut.

by @Djordje

ASAP SIGN5

On Saturday, we hosted the super successful FRANK151 x A$AP Mob: Harlem Edition book-signing event at 424 Gallery on Fairfax. A$AP Mob and the FRANK151 familia came together to show love, celebrate, and promote our most recent FRANK book, this time curated by the Harlem’s own A$AP Mob.

The book delivers exactly what you’d expect—A$AP biographies, the rich history of Harlem, and the cultural phenomenon’s which leave Harlem so imitated today. And the signing event delivered the very same, with Mob members eagerly signing books, posing for flicks, and blasting A$AP’s playlist in the background.

Naturally though, that was just an introduction to the evening that followed. Later, A$AP Ferg and the Mob played a show at the Henry Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles. With vitality, Fergenstein personified on stage what we noted in the book, transforming our latest chapter into a live show. It was a successful tribute to one of our favorite crews and groups hailing from NYC, as well as a tribute to the die-hard A$AP fans.

Shout out to the Mob—keep it 100 ya’ heard?

P On The Boards Interview with OC Weekly

by @Djordje

“I met ASAP Ant when he had his clothing line Marino Goods and I was a huge supporter of it. This kid was making shit that people are stealing designs from right now, and I fucked with it,” P says. “One time Ant told me he wanted to start rapping and I was like ‘I make beats.’ At the time I had a couple placements, and I was kind of becoming a name. He told me he wanted to rap and I supported everything he wanted to do. We did ‘Ridin’ Around Slow,’ Rocky loved it, and it was just like that. We put a seed in the ground and it grew organically.”

Soon after P linked up with ASAP architect ASAP Yams, and landed his standout work with his productions on the ASAP Mob mixtape, such as the massive posse cut “Bath Salt.” “Bath Salt” featured like-minded NYC up-and-comers Flatbush Zombies, and at the track’s core laid the sonorous, schizophrenic production. “That was like the career defining record for me. I was trending on Twitter and all of that,” P says.
