A$AP Ferg Talks New Collaboration With Hennessy, How His Family Shaped His Character

by @Djordje

In a new campaign launched by Hennessy, A$AP Ferg reps his beloved Uptown through three passions: art, music, and Cognac. Fans can now experience the rapper’s “Never stop. Never settle” story through a tasty drink, “The Uptown,” and its The Hennessy Uptown Inspired by A$AP Ferg Cocktail Kit.

The first 100 orders (via CocktailCourier.com) will receive a limited-edition vinyl of Ferg’s new track “Family” and a pressed record with the cover art painted by the rapper himself.
