A$AP Ferg Talks About ‘Ferg Forever’ & Why He’s More Basquiat Than Andy Warhol

by @Djordje

asap-ferg

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from A$AP Ferg, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been working. The Harlem MC hasn’t put out much new music outside of some guest spots since his August 2013 debut album Trap Lord, hit stores. But last Friday Ferg returned triumphantly with his brand new 19-track mixtape Ferg Forever, a teaser for both his new BestCoast Connection Tour with YG and his upcoming sophomore album, which he told XXL in October was “almost done.”

Just before his tape hit the streets, XXL spoke to Ferg about the changes he’s made to his sound, why it’s important for him to speak on the situation in Ferguson and why it’s okay to not be lyrical all the damn time.

(Video) Live From the Streets: Chinatown ft. A$AP Ferg

by @Djordje

Mr. Green is back again with a new batch of tight collaborators, and for this latest espisode, he’s hooking up with A$AP Ferg.

Mr Green had this to say about the collaboration: “This might come as a surprise but I like to trap music, it’s dope. I’m a boom bap dude at heart, but there is something crazy exciting about trap music that I can’t get enough of. I’m not sure if it’s the sub bass, the fast hi-hats, or the ridiculous chants that the artist say over and over, but I’m feeling it.

“When my people from VICE/Noisey told me A$AP Ferg wanted to do an episode I was all the way down. I immediately sat for a couple hours and chopped some samples I got from Chinatown in New York and put the beat together. A couple days later me, Sam and the crew headed uptown to Polo Grounds studio to meet Ferg. He was mad cool. We immediately hit it off and started talking about growing up riding bikes and how the BMX/skate worlds overlap into hip-hop and the music industry.

“It kind of felt like I was talking to one of my friends I grew up skating with and not some mainstream rapper/celebrity dude. He did a couple crazy verses and a hook about riding bikes and then we took off. Ferg and I have a mutual friend Nigel Sylvester—who I know through Animal Bikes—so while I was making the track, I met up with him. We recorded some bikes sounds and then I threw them in the mix. Finally, we checked out Animal Street jam in Newark and got a bunch of dope footage. Shout out to Gabby, Nigel, VICE/Noisey, Ferg and the whole A$AP Mob, Animal Bikes, Ralph Sinisi & everyone that attended the 2014 Animal Street Jam in Newark.”

A$AP Bari Interview with Mass Appeal

by @Djordje

AAP-Bari-2-1200x675

When it comes to style, A$AP Bari is the go-to guy, no matter whether you’re referring to streetwear or high-end brands. Born Jabari Shelton, the Harlem native is a founding member of one of the most influential crews in rap, the A$AP Mob. Although he doesn’t rhyme, his contributions to the crew are still valuable. He takes care of everything creatively and connects the dots. As the story goes, Bari introduced Rocky to A$AP’s musical genius Yams. They’ve been making history ever since.

While Bari maintains a low-profile within the fashion industry, he makes large contributions to some of streetwear’s most infamous brands. One of his most recent endeavors has been the launch of his own clothing line, Vlone.

A$AP Bari made it clear that he stays away from interviews, unless it feels right. Fortunately, Mass Appeal was able to sit down Bari and chop it up with him regarding his style influences, Basquiat, the first Vlone collection, his love for talking shit on tracks, and much more.

(Video) Complex Speaks with A$AP Ferg on Ralph Lauren, Festival Essentials & Trap Lord Condoms

by @Djordje

A$AP Ferg took a few minutes out from a wild time down at Bonnaroo to speak with Complex News about his style hero Ralph Lauren. The Harlem native clearly and correctly holds Lauren at legend status, and his knowledge of the designer’s clothing offerings and biography is serious. Taking cues from Ralph, perhaps, Ferg also spoke about the Trap Lord line, which is expanding from tour merch to a full-fledged line. He even wondered out loud if he should get into the prophylactic game. Watch the video above to hear Ferg wax poetic about RL, music festival essentials, and upcoming collaborations with Trap Lord.

A$AP Ferg Interview with NahRight

by @Djordje

Cam-Ferg-450x290

Always Strive And Prosper. Before Ferg joined the A$AP Mob, he already lived by their motto thanks to his father Darold Ferguson. While residing in Harlem’s notorious Hamilton Heights neighborhood, Ferg senior established a reputation as a renowned hustler. He printed shirts and designed logos for luminaries including Bad Boy Records, Teddy Riley, Heavy D and Bell Biv DeVoe.

Inspired to carry his father’s legacy after his death, A$AP Ferg pursued fashion and attended art school. He was later convinced to focus on music by friends and was featured on A$AP Rocky’s first mixtape Deep Purple. With his creative background as the foundation, Ferg’s vocal experimentation and unique visual direction ensured he was the second major label signee from the A$AP mob.

Ferg’s debut Trap Lord was released last year, and included bangers such as “Work” (remix,) “Shabba” and “Hood Pope.” Before his June show at the NXNE Festival in Toronto, he told me about working with Bone Thugs on “Lord,” Diddy calling him after his record deal, speaking regularly to Fab Five Freddy and wanting to collaborate with Phil Collins.
