A$AP Ferg is making a habit of reaching new levels.
Following the April release of his star-studded sophomore album, Always Strive and Prosper, the Harlem wordsmith has taken the show on the road for his “Level Up Tour” with Tory Lanez. During the 26-date run, the duo will make a stop at the BET Experience at L.A. Live, an annual showcase that’s also slated to feature 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Fetty Wap, and more.
In the midst of all of this, the Trap Lord is also working on more videos from A.S.A.P, as well as new material with his A$AP Mob brothers. Plus, the crew is hard at work on the A$AP Yams-inspired Cozy Tapes.
While Ferg continues to “Strive” for greatness, Rap-Up spoke with the A$AP Mob spitter about it all.

A$AP Ferg drops much truth on Always Strive and Prosper, the kind of honesty that wasn’t quite available on his debut album. And not just truth about his own upbringing in Harlem, but how place affected the people close to him. He told Complex as much: “This is my documentary to my life.” Which is why there’s a song dedicated to his grandma—who also appears on “Beautiful People” alongside legendary rapper Chuck D. Or why he puts his uncle’s business in the streets on “Psycho.” But trust, Ferg also comes through with bangers like “New Level” and “Swipe Life.” Both tracks are liable to tear up the club and motivate the haves and have nots. Always Strive and Prosper is the definition of when keeping it real goes right. Salute the Trap Lord. —Edwin Ortiz

It is evident that A$AP Ferg isn’t the same person we were first introduced to back in 2010. The rough exterior layers of the Trap Lord have been shaved off with time, and we have found ourselves face to face with a regular human being. A 27-year-old man with flaws, emotions and transparency, Ferg has revealed who Darold Ferguson, Jr. is on Always Strive and Prosper. And with him comes his family, his artistry and A$AP Mob — all factors here to stay. You wanted to get to know A$AP Ferg? Pay attention.
“I want to put her in a better [situation], because if her son were here, he would be trying to do the same thing. And I feel like I owe her that because she brought him into this world, and without him I probably wouldn’t even be rapping. Yams was the one who had the vision for all of this to happen.” Ferg’s relationship with A$AP Yams’ mother is new, but the bond is strong. Their love for the same person brought them together, but it has become about more than just Yams.
“I met her at his funeral. She had his phone, so when he passed, she went through all his texts and seen what we were talking about. She was like, ‘He really loved you,’ and ever since then, we’ve been building, and she considers me her son. I love that lady like a mom, for real.”
As he talks about Yams and his mother, you can feel the admiration Ferg has for both of them. And as the words flow out, you understand more and more how much he feels he owes to Yams: his career. The “Yammy Gang” track on Ferg’s newest album brings Yams and his mom together once again as the Mob raps about the legacy he has left behind and his mom promises to keep it alive. “This is for all my beautiful people around the world. My son was a genius. I wanna continue his legacy,” states Tatiana Paulino at the end of the track.
