A$AP Ferg Interview with Oyster

by @Djordje

asap-ferg

Harlem’s A$AP Ferg is the hood pope with a strong ‘Work’ ethic. Late last year, the NYC-born-and-bred rapper released his highly shab-shabba-ranked debut Trap Lord. A title that translates to mean divine hustling skills, it’s without surprise to learn Ferg grew up around an influential 90s hip-hop set – his dad designed the logo for Bad Boy Records and can count Teddy Riley and Puff Daddy as childhood acquaintances.  Last in Australia with fashion killa counterpart A$AP Rocky, the A$AP Mob member, with his own app and clothing line – is back for a second solo visit.

A$AP P Interview with Elite Daily

by @Djordje

Individuality is hard to come by in today’s day and age. Individuality is even harder to come by, today, in the music world.

This shouldn’t be too shocking to anyone.

The music industry, as a whole, is manipulated by which fad is in this week, and which fad is old news by the next.

One week we’re urged to “pop, lock and drop it,” and the next week, Miley Cyrus has a f*cking foam finger by her underwear, introducing us to the power of the latest awesome dance move, the “twerk.” Last week, Avicii was cool (by the standard of the EDM world). This week, Avicii is “a product of mainstream raver losers.”

See, that’s the power of individuality within an artist. It’s timeless. Hendrix will always be Hendrix. There can be no replacement.

A$AP Ferg Interview with ACCLAIM Magazine

by @Djordje

Version2

Darold Ferguson, Jr. (you may know him as A$AP Ferg) is one of those guys who seems at home wherever he is. He’s only been in Australia for half a day but by the time we meet he’s been on a mini-tour of the city and released a new freestyle: ode to Trinidad ‘Petit Valley’. (On his busy release schedule: “I release music while I’m shitting.”) On the way back to his hotel room, he snatches a bottle of hand lotion from the room service cart parked outside and moisturises before our interview. As we chat, he reclines in his seat, sometimes smiling broadly (and baring a resplendent grill). He is upbeat and present and it all stands in contrast with the moody, chiaroscuro cover art for his debut full-length Trap Lord.

(Video) A$AP Mob Interview with Complex TV at SXSW

by @Djordje

If you’ve ever seen any of the A$AP Mob in action, you probably know by know that any of their individual shows can get a little rowdy. But together, the crew is a live force that’s nearly unstoppable.

Nearly because they have occasionally been stopped, and had their shows shut down for any number of reasons, the main one being: They’re on a roll right now, and who wouldn’t want to pack in a venue to see them? While at The COMPLEX Complex at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, we somehow managed to catch a few of them at once, in one place: A$AP Ferg,A$AP AntA$AP Twelvy, and A$AP Nast. Check the video above to hear them talk about how the Mob holds it down during their live performances, and what it’s like when things get a little too crazy.
