New Music: Mura Masa – Love$ick ft. A$AP Rocky

by @Djordje

lovesickcover

Alex Crossan, better known as UK producer Mura Masa, has shared a new collaboration with A$AP Rocky. Rocky contributes a verse to a new version of Mura Masa’s “Lovesick Fuck.” The new collab is called “Love$ick.” Hear it, and see the single artwork, below. Crossan is currently prepping his debut album as Mura Masa. It is due out next year via Anchor Point and Downtown/Interscope Records.

In a statement, Crossan explained how the collaboration with Rocky came to be:

Rocky was actually in London for a couple of days and I wanted to make him feel like I was taking the collaboration seriously, so I booked us in to Abbey Road, Studio 2, and we met up there for a couple of hours and he did his thing. It was a hell of a good time hanging out in such a legendary space with him, very surreal. The track originally was about sex and how I was feeling after a particularly empty encounter with a friend told through a kind of twisted-pop, calypso, hip hop dance track. Rocky kind of ran with that and took it to this lovelorn, exotic place. He totally injected his energy into it.

(Video) A$AP Ferg is The Motivational Speaker The World’s Been Waiting For

by @Djordje

In the summer of 2011 Harlem’s A$AP Mob became the centre of the pop culture universe: the Givenchy wearing, jiggy eye of the storm around them. Of the twelve or so members, it was pretty boy A$AP Rocky who rapidly landed major label deals, magazine covers and fashion co-signs, while his comrade A$AP Ferg emerged as the masterly “rappers rapper”. For Ferg-Darold Ferguson Jr. to his loved ones-celebrity wasn’t quite the perfect fit that it looked like for Rocky. Ferguson became depressed and built an armour of bravado that was the “Trap Lord” persona we witnessed muggin’ through hits like his debut Work and 2013’s monster, Shabba.

Ferg was making great music, but it was separate from his true self-it wasn’t an honest extension of his being. After a life changing encounter with a fan who survived cancer, Ferg carved out a new artistic path that would see his second album re-introduce the rawest A$AP Ferg to his fans.

The new Ferg arrives in Always Strive and Prosper-aka ASAP. It’s an album that deals with the uncomfortable realities of celebrity whilst telling intimate tales of his childhood and youth starring family, friends and lovers. The album boasts verses from Missy Elliot, Rick Ross, Future and Chuck D that sit perfectly next to cameos from his mother, grandma and the mother of fallen friend, A$AP Mob founder, A$AP Yams.
