A$AP Ferg Interview with Highsnobiety

by @Djordje

At the top of 2016, A$AP Ferg divulged the uncertainty surrounding his next move following the release of his sophomore LP, Always Strive and Prosper. The eclectic, self-reflective soundscape landmarked a risk taking conceptual shift in his catalogue, revealing a place where honesty, humor, and exuberant charm coexisted in harmony. For Ferg, it was the album he always dreamt of making, but as effortlessly as the album was delivered to the masses last spring, it was also a tough learning lesson for the MC willing to sacrifice everything for his art.

Now, a year later, Ferg is back at the drawing board and analyzing the ins and outs of Always Strive and Prosper’s successor: a mixtape aptly titled Still Striving. Having solidified himself as an artist unafraid to push boundaries and bare his truth, Ferg is unlike many artists for the simple fact that he’s far from jaded, and looking no further than three letters to sum up the approach of his new work: f-u-n.

Below, A$AP Ferg muses over his latest creation, and how the initial enjoyment and passion for music that has carried his career this far is still alive and well.

Venus X Interviews A$AP Ferg for MoMA

by @Djordje

ASAP Ferg always knew art was his destiny, he just never anticipated that the shapes and colors of his imagination would be heard through verses and not seen on a canvas. Until now. In anticipation of his first-ever Warm Up appearance at MoMA PS1 on Saturday, August 12, series curator Venus X chats with the self-described [Harlem] Renaissance man about the hot roofs and basements of his childhood, that special creative vibration that only exists in New York, and going back to basics: finding inspiration in silence and putting his lines back into paint.

Ferg and Venus were photographed by Neil Aline — a New York–based DJ and photographer who played as part of the very first Warm Up lineup in 1998 — in the MoMA PS1 courtyard under Lumen by Jenny Sabin Studio, this year’s Young Architects Program winner.

A$AP Ferg Tells The New York Times How He Spends His Sundays

by @Djordje

ASAP Ferg is hardly ever home. The rapper and fashion designer, born Darold Ferguson Jr., just wrapped up a tour, visited Russia last month and will soon go to South Africa and Australia. His second mixtape, “Still Striving,” will be released this month, which will mean more trips. Rarely is he able to sneak a few days in Harlem, where he grew up and still lives. Even then, he’ll often stay busy, with studio sessions and appearances in between shows that cause the days to blur together. But Sundays are for him. He recharges and catches up with his friends and family and, among other things, sits very still on his couch. If you squint, his Sundays kind of look like ours.

A$AP Twelvyy Interview with Complex

by @Djordje

Jamel “ASAP Twelvyy” Phillips was, along with ASAP Yams, one of the founders of the ASAP Mob, the crew that’s taken over its hometown of NYC, and much of the world as well. With the solo stardoms of ASAP Rocky and ASAP Ferg firmly established, it’s Twelvyy’s turn.

Twelvyy’s brand-new album 12 paints a picture of his life growing up in Harlem and then in the Castle Hill (or “Castle Hell,” as the opening song has it) section of the Bronx, finding his crew, and the triumphs and tragedies that occurred along the way—the most notable of the which is Yams’ death in 2015. His loss permeates the album.

I sat down with Twelvyy, 28, at the Complex office to get an idea of how the album came to be—and what a certain cold-remedy-inspired viral hit had to do with anything.
