A$AP Ferg always had plans bigger than music. Despite achieving stardom with his blistering raps, the Harlem rapper has been eyeing ways to expand his Trap Lord brand.

After traveling to Liberia to provide school outfits for kids through his collaboration with Uniform, Ferg (born Darold D. Brown Ferguson Jr.) recently joined forces with Fancy to sell home goods.

On Thursday (June 1), the multi-faceted star will welcome fans at his pop-up shop in Harlem, where he remodeled the space to resemble his childhood apartment.

Musically, Ferg is working on his Still Striving album, which follows his sophomore effort, 2016’s Always Strive and Propser.
