In the midst of a crazy ‘business as usual’ schedule, A$AP Ferg has been nonstop from the jump in 2016.

From performing at last week’s Yams Day to being on the road for the past month and then some alongside G-Eazy, to preparing his new album, Always Strive And Prosper, Ferg is sitting at the brink of a glorious year.

As part of the When It’s Dark Out tour (supporting G-Eazy’s new album of the same name) Terminal 5 was blessed with three sold-out shows this past week and the crowd was introduced to a new side of Ferg. While still performing fan favorites from his debut Trap Lord, Ferg also delivered some new fire, such as “New Level,” his single with Future and his Yams-dedicated track, “Tatted Angel.” His dedication to the late A$AP Yams made for a powerful moment on stage, as images of his fallen brother were projected on a large screen behind him and the audience swayed their cell phones in the air paying respect.

Written from the heart, “Tatted Angel” was the first song A$AP Ferg released in over a year, and is also foreshadowing to a more personal side the rapper promises to show in Always Strive And Prosper, which is still awaiting its official release date announcement.

Backstage after closing his Terminal 5 set out with his sign off, “Love, Peace, & A$AP,” Ferg was shown love from his family, friends and crew, with his mother and uncle in the building as well. While asking his friends to give him a minute so he can chat with The Source, a friend jokingly asked him, “So, when did you realize you could rap?”

“I was in front of the mirror and I said, damn you handsome!,” Ferg replied, laughing. “What can match with this handsome?”

While Ferg does have the time of his life with every show, he handles his business seriously. Dipping out rapidly following our conversation in order to make perfect timing to join G-Eazy back on stage, it became clear our interview was the first time the rapper sat down all day.

Check out our exclusive Q+A below and keep your eyes open for the announcement regarding the release date for Always Strive And Prosper.
