Dapper Dan & A$AP Ferg: New Yorkers That Brought Harlem to the World

by @Djordje

The New Yorker’s version of the American Dream is only slightly different than the overarching ideal of owning a house that your family can pass down from generation to generation. The city has long praised the self-made individual, whether it’s a hustler who goes legit after a few brushes with the law, or the street-smart smooth talker who works his or her way up from the bottom of the ladder to the corner office.

Daniel Day, better known as Dapper Dan, occupies a space between those two archetypes. He grew up in Harlem, on 129th Street and Lexington, in humble means. He went to an elementary school three blocks away from where poet Langston Hughes lived. Whenever his mom won some money from scratch-offs, she’d treat him to a new pair of shoes. Soon, he was taking matters into his own hands, running the streets and shoplifting with a crew that included Richard “Pee Wee” Kirkland, who would go on to become a street ball legend.

(Video) A$AP Ferg Breaks Down “East Coast” on Genius

by @Djordje

Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg has been an integral part of A$AP Mob’s rise to prominence since the beginning, and his recent Still Striving single “East Coast” featuring Remy Ma shows just how vital he is. The DJ Khalil and Tariq Beats-produced song has over 9 million Spotify streams, and its accompanying music video has been viewed nearly 3 million times on YouTube. “East Coast” is Ferg’s ode to New York City, where he grew up and still resides.

“I wanted to create a song that was very prideful of the East Coast, particularly New York,” Ferg explains to Genius. “I wanted to create an anthem that we could play at the Giants’ stadium. We could play at Madison Square Garden. We could play at Barclay’s Center. And just turn up to.”

A$AP Ferg recently sat down with Genius for the latest episode of Verified and broke down his upbeat track. Watch him go line-for-line with “East Coast” in the video above.
