The very first time we met ASAP Ferg, he was touring with the ASAP Mob—the Harlem-based hip hop collective that boasts a long list of talented producers and rappers (and yes, that includes ASAP Rocky). It was a little hectic as ANDPOP’s SImon Mohos interviewed the group as they were surrounded by their fans in a crammed Toronto clothing boutique. It was only yet another day in the life of a talented rapper.
Simon’s next encounter with ASAP Ferg was a little calmer. While tour with Compton, Calif. rapper YG, the former fashion designer and all-around businessman chatted with our host on a comfy couch backstage when he rolled into Toronto earlier this year. They talked about ASAP Ferg’s friendship with model-actress Cara Delevingne (like many modern friendships, it, too, started online), designing his own sparkly grillz and what he’s been eating these days (he’s no longer a Pescetarianism). ASAP Ferg also delivers his best Batman impression as he and Simon do a dramatic reading of a scene straight from The Dark Knight. How did he do? Hit play to find out!
