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.

A$AP Ferg Interview with MAXIM

by @Djordje

asapferg_qanda_article1

Of the whole A$AP Mob, the Harlem-based hip-hop and fashion collective, A$AP Ferg is known as the most personable one. Funny and gracious in interviews, Ferg is someone you want to root for. Since the death of his good friend A$AP Yams last year, the 27-year-old rapper has spent much of the past few months working on projects that illustrate his wide-ranging interests  outside of hip-hop. — from painting, to designing shoes,  to creating rugs. Yes, rugs.  This past Monday, Ferg unveiled his new Traplord rug at an event thrown by Fancy.  He also released a new song, “Tatted Angel,” earlier this week, which discusses his feelings about the death of his good friend Yams.

Before his performance on Monday night, Ferg sat down with Maxim to discuss his new album (coming out in 2016), maturing as an artist, and painting with Swizz Beatz.
