A$AP Ferg shows us around his favorite bodega, where he shot “Doe-Active” and A$AP Rocky’s “Peso.”
The bodega is key for any native New Yorker. Chances are you have one that is your go-to, or your favorite, typically right around the corner or down the block from where ever you live– NYC or not.
Before the A$AP Mob boys blew up, they were regular customers at a specific bodega in Harlem (and perhaps they still are regular customers despite being uber famous), on 143rd and Hamilton Place to be exact. We got Ferg to take his to his old stomping grounds, across the street from where the crew shot the video for A$AP Rocky’s break-out single “Peso.” More recently, they mobbed in the aisle of this corner store for Ferg’s “Doe-Active” music video. It was obviously Ferg’s neighborhood, as the rapper was greeted by just about everyone inside and out of the bodega. Taking us inside the store though, Ferg orders his favorite sandwich (honey turkey and cheese) and shows us how he does Snapples– like a true gangsta, he says, “This is how my pops do the Snapples. We usually get the mango joint, grab the Snapple, throw the top away. Never see the top again. Cause we don’t save juice. I never read what’s inside the cap, cause I don’t care.” However, the Arizona Ice Tea’s are definitely worth saving according to Fergie Ferg.
