A$AP Ferg emerged in 2012 as one of the leading members of the renowned, Harlem-based A$AP Mob. Immediately captivating critics and rap fans the world over, Ferg instantly fortified his reputation by appearing on A$AP Rocky's major label debut, Long.Live.A$AP and wowing sold-out audiences while on tour with Rihanna and Drake.
In 2013, A$AP Ferg released his debut album, Trap Lord, which entered at #9 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart and earned Ferg the ‘Rookie of the Year’ BET Hip Hop Award. Trap Lord included the breakout hits ‘Work (Remix)’ featuring A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Trinidad James & ScHoolBoy Q, and ‘Shabba’, also featuring A$AP Rocky.
Amidst a packed touring schedule and collaborations with major fashion labels, A$AP Ferg worked tirelessly on his highly anticipated sophomore album, Always Strive and Prosper (out now through Sony Music Entertainment New Zealand). Linking up with everyone from Missy Elliot to Skrillex, Ferg delves deep into his personal history to paint a vivid and uncompromising self-portrait, offering introspection and entertainment in equal measure.
“This album is by far the best work I've created and showcases my versatility and taste in the music that I love,” states Ferg. “The mission for this album is for my fans to get a deeper look into my life; to know my origin, my family and the obstacles I've faced while growing up. More importantly, I want to encourage people to always strive and prosper because if an inner city kid from Harlem, NY can make it then they can as well.”
