A$AP Ferg Partners with Young & Reckless for Exclusive Collection

by @Djordje

A$AP Ferg is a member of the A$AP Mob hip-hop collective, A$AP Worldwide. The collection highlights elements of Ferg’s signature style; like camouflage prints, A$AP Worldwide globes, jerseys, a bucket hat, and Trap Lord statement t-shirts. Young & Reckless has merged the design influence of A$AP Ferg’s personal life with the mass appeal of the brand.

Partnering with A$AP Ferg was a perfect fit on many levels for Young & Reckless. As a Harlem native, Ferg experienced many challenges in his pursuit of becoming an entertainer. When speaking on his debut album Trap Lord, Ferg said: “I hope people take the good and the bad from what I’ve got to say, I’ve seen so much shit in my life. There were times I ducked bullets at a basketball game, and then I went to a fashion show. I’ve experienced depression. I’ve experienced triumph. I’ve experienced hate. I’ve experienced love. I learned how to be independent. I made it out of the hood, and now I want go to the top.” Ferg’s story of overcoming obstacles in his own way is the message behind all things Young & Reckless. These are the stories that resonate with our fans and inspire them to follow their unique path.
