New York’s own A$AP Ferg and LA’s YG have announced they will be joining forces to embark on THE BESTCOAST CONNECTION TOUR. After his monstrous critically acclaimed 2013 major label debut, Trap Lord, receiving praise from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone, Ferg has solidified his place as one of the scene’s newest and truest rap ambassadors. Ferg also received the Rookie of The Year Award at the 2013 BET Music Awards and Complex, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Stereogum among others all named Trap Lord one of the best albums of 2013. “Shabba Ranks” Feat. A$AP Rocky,” Ferg’s biggest smash to date, has amassed over 27 million YouTube views since he unleashed it last year. With his fame skyrocketing, Ferg gained the attention of indie music cultural maven, M.I.A., who quickly enlisted the A$AP Hood-Pope as the main support on her summer 2014 Matangi tour. Seemingly everywhere and flexing his versatility across genres from a recent cameo in Chromeo’s video for “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” and lethal features on tracks by everyone from Juicy J to indie rock female stalwart, HAIM, this tour will feature Ferg setting fire on stages this fall in your city. Ticket’s on sale now here.
