(Video) A$AP Ferg Breaks Down “East Coast” on Genius

by @Djordje

Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg has been an integral part of A$AP Mob’s rise to prominence since the beginning, and his recent Still Striving single “East Coast” featuring Remy Ma shows just how vital he is. The DJ Khalil and Tariq Beats-produced song has over 9 million Spotify streams, and its accompanying music video has been viewed nearly 3 million times on YouTube. “East Coast” is Ferg’s ode to New York City, where he grew up and still resides.

“I wanted to create a song that was very prideful of the East Coast, particularly New York,” Ferg explains to Genius. “I wanted to create an anthem that we could play at the Giants’ stadium. We could play at Madison Square Garden. We could play at Barclay’s Center. And just turn up to.”

A$AP Ferg recently sat down with Genius for the latest episode of Verified and broke down his upbeat track. Watch him go line-for-line with “East Coast” in the video above.
