A$AP Ferg Talks Home Goods Collaboration With Fancy, ‘Still Striving’ Album & Tour With Future

by @Djordje

A$AP Ferg always had plans bigger than music. Despite achieving stardom with his blistering raps, the Harlem rapper has been eyeing ways to expand his Trap Lord brand.

After traveling to Liberia to provide school outfits for kids through his collaboration with Uniform, Ferg (born Darold D. Brown Ferguson Jr.) recently joined forces with Fancy to sell home goods. While the “New Level” MC relishes piecing together ensembles, he’s opened up his empire to sell welcome mats, clocks, and scented candles. On Thursday (June 1), the multi-faceted star will welcome fans at his pop-up shop in Harlem, where he remodeled the space to resemble his childhood apartment.

Musically, Ferg is working on his Still Striving album, which follows his sophomore effort, 2016’s Always Strive and Propser. Last month, he also dropped his star-studded video for “East Coast,” featuring Remy Ma. Since then, he’s been gallivanting around the country with Migos and Tory Lanez for Future’s Nobody Safe Tour.

In the midst of the madness, Ferg hopped on the phone with Billboard to speak on his new collaboration with Fancy, touring with Future, where he stands with his new project Still Striving, and if he believes rompers have a place in hip-hop.

A$AP Ferg’s New Home Goods Collection Is Inspired by the Spice Girls and Ralph Lauren

by @Djordje

A$AP Ferg is known for his collaborative streak. In addition to myriad musical collaborators like Missy Elliott and Remy Ma, Ferg has also worked with top-flight brands like adidas and Uniform on various apparel and merchandise collections. Fergenstein’s latest collaboration with Fancy is yet another extension of his Traplord brand, this time venturing into the realm of home goods; that means NIGHT:SHIFT bedding, clocks, bean-bag chairs, welcome mats and even a scented candle.

And what does an A$AP Ferg scented candle smell like? “Oud and crushed roses,” says the Harlem rapper. “It’s masculine,” he adds, “but in a good way.”

HYPEBEAST caught up with the Harlem renaissance man to talk collaboration, inspiration and what’s next for the Traplord.

First and foremost, how did this collaboration with Fancy come about?

It all started when we found out the founder of Fancy was a fan of my music, and he had seen that I was doing artwork and fashion, so we found a way to collaborate with one another. So we did the Traplord rug and that took off almost immediately. After that, we jumped on a new direction, which was doing more home goods: candles, pillows, comforter sets, clocks, different things that you could put in your office or your home.

You’ve collaborated with everyone from adidas to AGOLDE, and now Fancy. Does your creative process change, depending on the medium?

Nah, nothing has changed. It’s still us all getting together and conversing—it all comes from a conversation first, and then we bring it to fruition. It’s pretty much the same.

The pop-up space is modeled after your own apartment; what will that look like and how did you go about replicating your space?

To start off, we’re doing it in uptown Harlem, so the location, first and foremost. People don’t usually go to Harlem, so they’ll already feel like they’re going to my house. The idea actually came from me wanting to do a listening party at my mother’s crib—the crib I grew up in. We wanted to do something similar to that for this pop-up shop. To make it a little more home-y, a little more intimate. We tried to replicate exactly how my apartment was growing up. It’s gonna be a mixture of things, but for the most part it’s gonna include the Traplord pieces we designed for the space. Quilts, candles, bean bags and clocks.
