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.

A$AP Ferg Interview with i-D Magazine

A$AP Ferg, the self-appointed Hood Pope – a man confident enough to put out Fergivicious without fear of it sounding like a Fergie Black Eyed Peas comeback track – spent much of last year criss-crossing the States on his Turnt x Burnt tour. We first caught up with him and the rest of the A$AP Mob (an album from the whole crew is due later this year) at his biggest hometown gig yet in NYC in December where the posse’s first superstar, that pretty mofo A$AP Rocky, shouted out: “I’m so proud of my brother Ferg!” The gig showcased Ferg’s dizzying mix of voices, sounds and ideas: gruff and smooth; hard ‘90s beats and woozy present-day trap; aggressive lyrics and comforting paternal musings (“This is for all those kids who want to do something for themselves”). The overall mood was deservedly joyous – a bunch of Harlem kids who’ve made it big and are celebrating as they takeover their city and beyond. i-D caught up with Ferg backstage at the gig, then again at the Polo Grounds studios in the Bronx. Here’s what the Trap Lord had to say.

GQ Magazine x A$AP Illz: Hood to High Fashion

by @Djordje

asap-illz-hood-to-high-fashion-13

The ascent of the A$AP Mob is one of the most authentic New York stories of today. The thought that a group of friends in Harlem with similar styles and tastes could rapidly become pre-eminent tastemakers in music and fashion used to take decades, but thanks to the advent of social media platforms like Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram—that time frame’s been reduced to mere months. The collective exudes a decidedly unique New York City energy that industry insiders and brands want to tap into, which is why it’s no surprise that DKNY tapped prominent member A$AP Rocky for its most recent campaign.

Fresh off the the release of his new visuals for See Me, A$AP Ant aka YG Addie takes on Que’s club banger OG Bobby Johnson. Get to know more about him below:

Name: YG ADDIE. LIL FACE TAT. A$AP ANT

From: Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland

Inspired by: Inspired by my bro, pops, moms and anybody out doing what they wanna do in life and getting money by doing it.

Musical influences: A lot cause I was born in 93 so my big bro Dj Nick (@djnickmarino) put me on DJ Clue tapes, Diplomats I mean everything. Since I can remember I had Cory Guns & Lord Tariq uptown single on tape cassette. First beef song I listen to was Beanie Sigel vs Jadakiss, so I experienced a lot of the late 90s & early 00s. Went from bumping No Limit to Cash Money to Hot Boyz to Rocafella type shit, so every era from late 90s to early 00s we was bumping it. I remember being young as fuck just listening to the lyrics & actually getting what they meant, ahead of my time I guess. Prodigy from Mobb Deep also in my top three rappers of all time.
