Fergenstein’s back. As promised, A$AP Ferg delivered his new Gangsta Grillz-hosted mixtape Ferg Forever on the day after Thanksgiving. The 19-track project includes features from artists like YG and Big Sean with production from the likes of Mike Will Made It and Big K.R.I.T. But Ferg decided to showcase some new talent as well.
There’s Harlem-bred rapper and producer Crystal Caines, who’s been working with Ferg for years. She produced the Trap Lord cut “Lord,” helped him lay down vocals for “Work” and “Shabba” and on this project she’s rapping her a$$ off on the songs “Reloaded (Let it Go pt. 2)”, and “Weave.”
NYC-based producer and songwriter, Stelios Phili, met Ferg while working at GQ and on this project he produced multiple standout tracks including the insanely catch “Ja-Rule,” “Dope Walk” and the single “Doe-Active.”
Crystal Caines and Stelios Phili broke down some of the tape’s highlights for MTV News.
