His background is in art and fashion and he was used to playing behind the scenes, he was forced to the forefront once his music career took off and he had to get used to it. Now he realizes that you have to open up all of yourself to the fans.

Can A$AP Ferg Be His Generation’s Next Great Visionary?

by @Djordje

A$AP Ferg is tucked in the back of the Crosby Bar at New York’s Crosby Hotel, and he’s feeling under the weather. He’s wearing an inside out sweatshirt with “PSYCHO” emblazoned on the front, made by his uncle (the “Psycho” on his latest album), along with Adidas track pants and a pair of his Trap Lord x Adi Ease kicks from his Adidas collection. A packed press schedule is stopping him from getting better, but he’s in good spirits eating poached salmon with quinoa and sweet potatoes, while sipping on a glass of Riesling. I casually recite Kanye West’s “beasting off the Riesling” line and Ferg perks up a bit. “Kanye’s so funny because I’m just hearing from madd different sources, like he must’ve been jamming the songs I put out ‘cause he went on Twitter and said he loves my album,” he says with a warm smile. “I heard from somebody that’s working with him in Germany that Kanye said I’m his favorite artist.” Despite being arguably at the top of his game, things like that still mean something to A$AP Ferg.

Born Darold Ferguson Jr., Ferg was raised on 143rd Street between Amsterdam and Broadway in Harlem’s Hamilton Heights (“Hungry Ham,” if you ask him). His father designed both the Bad Boy Records logo and Andre Harrell’s logo among others, which infused fashion into Ferg at a young age. His start-up clothing line Devoni Clothing had artists like Chris Brown and Swizz Beatz rocking his belts long before Ferg even touched a microphone. His ascension as part of A$AP Mob was swift—some may argue that it derived from a tight grip on Rocky’s coattails, though now Ferg has carved his own niche in the game.

A$AP Ferg is like a levelheaded Kanye West. He has huge dreams, and gets animated as he discusses his AGOLDE denim capsule collection with Citizens For All Humanity, designed after the jeans from his “Work” video. He wants to do more fashion and film, but hopes to reach a place where he can readily receive the capital to do it all (sound familiar?). He says the glitz and glamour of fame don’t faze him—and while he rocks his name on a diamond-encrusted ring that spans the length of four knuckles, he views it as a piece of art over a proof of purchase.

A$AP J. Scott Q&A with Keep It Movin

by @Djordje

J_Scott_500_B

For those who don’t know, what do you do?
DJ for A$AP Rocky and Cozy Boys, manager and creative partner with Kilo Kish, Imnotatoy line and other things in the works…

What influenced you growing up?
Discount malls in the hood, Comic/Cartoons, Music.

What made you want to start DJing?
DJ Screw honestly. I liked that element of DJing more than scratching or the more technical stuff. To me it just sounded so sick, and I don’t drink or smoke or anything – haa. I’m originally from Atlanta and in high school I started to get into production via the program Reason, but never fully got into the mix, I was bouncing around in the streets too much. When I moved to NY for good, all my friends up here would just want me to play music at the get togethers or what not because I would always play (to them) obscure music from all over. Before Rocky started to pop off Yams and Rocky asked me to DJ for him. I had never really DJed REAL spots. It was a quick transition for all of us.

A$AP Ferg Interview with The Source

by @Djordje

asap-ferg

In the midst of a crazy ‘business as usual’ schedule, A$AP Ferg has been nonstop from the jump in 2016.

From performing at last week’s Yams Day to being on the road for the past month and then some alongside G-Eazy, to preparing his new album, Always Strive And Prosper, Ferg is sitting at the brink of a glorious year.

As part of the When It’s Dark Out tour (supporting G-Eazy’s new album of the same name) Terminal 5 was blessed with three sold-out shows this past week and the crowd was introduced to a new side of Ferg. While still performing fan favorites from his debut Trap Lord, Ferg also delivered some new fire, such as “New Level,” his single with Future and his Yams-dedicated track, “Tatted Angel.” His dedication to the late A$AP Yams made for a powerful moment on stage, as images of his fallen brother were projected on a large screen behind him and the audience swayed their cell phones in the air paying respect.

Written from the heart, “Tatted Angel” was the first song A$AP Ferg released in over a year, and is also foreshadowing to a more personal side the rapper promises to show in Always Strive And Prosper, which is still awaiting its official release date announcement.

Backstage after closing his Terminal 5 set out with his sign off, “Love, Peace, & A$AP,” Ferg was shown love from his family, friends and crew, with his mother and uncle in the building as well. While asking his friends to give him a minute so he can chat with The Source, a friend jokingly asked him, “So, when did you realize you could rap?”

“I was in front of the mirror and I said, damn you handsome!,” Ferg replied, laughing. “What can match with this handsome?”

While Ferg does have the time of his life with every show, he handles his business seriously. Dipping out rapidly following our conversation in order to make perfect timing to join G-Eazy back on stage, it became clear our interview was the first time the rapper sat down all day.

Check out our exclusive Q+A below and keep your eyes open for the announcement regarding the release date for Always Strive And Prosper.

(Video) A$AP Ferg Taps Missy Elliott, Chris Brown For ‘Very Personal’ Album

by @Djordje

He was Trap Lord on the last album, but now A$AP Ferg sounds like he’s entering Hood Pope terrain this go around. And by “go around,” we mean the trails currently leading toward his brand new studio album, Always Strive And Prosper.

In between crafting behind the scene work on projects like his Traplord x adi-Ease Collection and a slew of art projects (more on that later), the A$AP Mob firebrand has also been busy finishing up the long-awaited sophomore project, which will arrive via RCA/Polo Grounds/A$AP Worldwide.

This month will mark two and a half years since the release of Trap Lord, his debut album, but as Ferg tells REVOLT the new LP is well worth the wait.”

A$AP Rocky Interview with Thrasher Magazine

by @Djordje

FIVE YEARS AGO WHILE LIVING IN NEW YORK, I met a kid with gold grills and french braids who told me I had to watch his new music video. The video wasn’t out yet, he just showed me a cut of it on an iPad. The video was Peso and the kid with the gold teeth was A$AP Rocky. Since meeting Rocky that night I have spent a lot of time with the him traveling and documenting his career. We recently sat down during the Rocky and Tyler (the Creator) tour to talk with him about what’s been going on and what he has coming up in the near future. Interview and photos by Brock Fetch

(Video) A$AP Ferg Interview with Red Bull .Wav Files

by @Djordje
With an intimate chinwag with X Ambassadors already in the bag, our brand-new interview series .Wav Files swings hard from alt-rock to rap in episode two. In front of the camera’s glare this week is Harlem’s Trap Lord himself, A$AP Ferg, who’s quizzed on the things that matter by Toronto musician Maylee Todd.

Among the many things the A$AP Mob rapper talks about are his artist father and his own definition of himself as an all-round creative. “I’m an innovator,” is what the Harlem hip-hop star prefers. Ferg talks, too, about his relationship with Skrillex and how important it is to avoid following the herd in order to, says Ferg, take “your sonics to the next level.”

It’s a fascinating insight into the minds of one of the world’s most hyped rappers ahead of the release of his second album, Always Strive And Prosper, later in 2016.

Stay tuned over the coming weeks for more exclusive .Wav Files interviews from BADBADNOTGOOD, MS MR, The Neighbourhood and more.
