Harlem rapper Marty Baller has been stepping out on his own over the past year or so. Stepping up his role in A$AP Mob, his impressive 2015 single “Things We Go Through” caused a buzz before tracks like “Roll The Bud Up” and the A$AP Ferg-featuring “Big Timers” dropped this year.
With his debut mixtape, MartyGraW, dropping this Friday, November 11, he’s preparing to take another step into the spotlight. “I’m a Dog,” premiering on Noisey today and produced by lordxprynce, is a boisterous trap track with A$AP Ferg and Migos both guesting and making as many dog-related puns as possible.
Listen to the track below and keep an eye out for MartyGraW. It’ll drop on DatPiff on Friday.

Halloween is different in New York City. Instead of going from house to house, kids go bodega to bodega to get candy. But that doesn’t make the experience any less memorable. Growing up in Harlem, rapper A$AP Ferg still fondly recalls getting dressed up and having parties in his apartment building. The fact that his birthday falls close to Halloween only added to the festive spirit.
This year, Ferg’s Halloween will be a little bit different. He’ll be in the house at the Kenzo Digital x Bacardi Nocturnal Awakening on Saturday, which is basically like the craziest haunted house you can imagine except that celebrities will also be having the shit scared out of them. Ferg and the rest of the A$AP Mob will also be dropping another treat on Halloween: the new mixtape Cozy Boys Vol 1.
With such a strong tie to the holiday, it was a good time to catch up with Ferg to talk about what Halloween was like growing up, his costume for this year, and where the A$AP Mob style comes from.

In the summer of 2011 Harlem’s A$AP Mob became the centre of the pop culture universe: the Givenchy wearing, jiggy eye of the storm around them. Of the twelve or so members, it was pretty boy A$AP Rocky who rapidly landed major label deals, magazine covers and fashion co-signs, while his comrade A$AP Ferg emerged as the masterly “rappers rapper”. For Ferg-Darold Ferguson Jr. to his loved ones-celebrity wasn’t quite the perfect fit that it looked like for Rocky. Ferguson became depressed and built an armour of bravado that was the “Trap Lord” persona we witnessed muggin’ through hits like his debut Work and 2013’s monster, Shabba.
Ferg was making great music, but it was separate from his true self-it wasn’t an honest extension of his being. After a life changing encounter with a fan who survived cancer, Ferg carved out a new artistic path that would see his second album re-introduce the rawest A$AP Ferg to his fans.
The new Ferg arrives in Always Strive and Prosper-aka ASAP. It’s an album that deals with the uncomfortable realities of celebrity whilst telling intimate tales of his childhood and youth starring family, friends and lovers. The album boasts verses from Missy Elliot, Rick Ross, Future and Chuck D that sit perfectly next to cameos from his mother, grandma and the mother of fallen friend, A$AP Mob founder, A$AP Yams.
