VIBE caught up with A$AP Ferg on the carpet at the 2014 BET Awards.
Laced Magazine joins A$AP Ferg at NYC’s BAPE store to discuss his recent collaboration with BAPE, Trap Lord, and more.
Look to no one other than Ferg for the definition of success. But how’d he get there? He takes to Brisk’s Rap PSA program to explain, and it’s pretty simple: surround yourself with successful people, and laugh a lot. Just. Laugh. And then go take a nap.
When it comes to style, A$AP Bari is the go-to guy, no matter whether you’re referring to streetwear or high-end brands. Born Jabari Shelton, the Harlem native is a founding member of one of the most influential crews in rap, the A$AP Mob. Although he doesn’t rhyme, his contributions to the crew are still valuable. He takes care of everything creatively and connects the dots. As the story goes, Bari introduced Rocky to A$AP’s musical genius Yams. They’ve been making history ever since.
While Bari maintains a low-profile within the fashion industry, he makes large contributions to some of streetwear’s most infamous brands. One of his most recent endeavors has been the launch of his own clothing line, Vlone.
A$AP Bari made it clear that he stays away from interviews, unless it feels right. Fortunately, Mass Appeal was able to sit down Bari and chop it up with him regarding his style influences, Basquiat, the first Vlone collection, his love for talking shit on tracks, and much more.

He even wondered out loud if he should get into the prophylactic game. Watch the video above to hear Ferg wax poetic about RL, music festival essentials, and upcoming collaborations with Trap Lord.

A$AP Ferg was putting in work at Bonnaroo Festival over the weekend. Complex News’ Jinx sat down with the Trap Lord to talk about the forthcoming A$AP Mob album, L.O.R.D., and their creative process during the recording process. According to Ferg, the whole crew went out West to record the album so they could get some quiet time, but you already knew New York doesn’t know how to be quiet.
The Mob is hoping on a more cohesive album to show off the younger members of the crew. Meanwhile, A$AP Ferg’s been stealing releasing music and today dropped “How to Rob the Mob.” Watch our interview with A$AP Ferg above, who looks extra cozy boy status, too.

The Roots hosted their 7th Annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia over the weekend. One of the acts to blaze the stage at this year’s festival was the Trap Lord from Harlem, A$AP Ferg. The Mob member was a crowd favorite from the moment he started his set. Performing his hits “Work,” “Shabba,” “Dump Dump” and more, Ferg lit up the crowd with his highly addictive tunes.
