Last we heard from A$AP Ferg was early this month, when he debuted a new solo track called “Harlem Anthem.” It followed his cover of “Moon River,” which was recorded with Elle Fanning for a Tiffany & Co. ad. “Harlem Anthem” also happens to be written for more commercial purposes. The song is … More »
The last time A$AP Ferg released a solo track, it was for goofy promotional reasons. That song was a new version of “Moon River,” recorded with Elle Fanning for a commercial for the jewelry-retail giant Tiffany & Co. (Someone evidently needed to hear rapping over “Moon River.”) Today, Ferg has release another track for … More »
Yellow Claw is cruising their way into a massive summer, setting up the season with the release of another party-primed collaboration, “Fake Chanel” featuring A$AP Ferg and Creek Boyz. The new drop comes hot off the heels of the Dutch duo’s recent joint effort, “BITTERSWEET” featuring Sofia Reyes.
The new tune packs a bumping dose of Yellow Claw’s signature heavy bass, laying down an aggressive trap beat as the backdrop for catchy bars from Ferg and the Boyz. Coming through with some high-octane set list ammunition, Yellow Claw is gearing up for the release of their upcoming album New Blood, available on June 22, and if “Fake Chanel” gives an accurate preview, we’re in for an exciting new LP from the Barong Family mainstays.
What the hell is going on with “Moon River”? Why is this song, of all possible songs, experiencing a sudden rebirth in 2018? “Moon River” is one of those songs that never entirely goes away. Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer wrote the song for the classing 1961 movie Breakfast At Tiffany’s, and it’s been covered … More »
Last year, the Compton rap prospect Buddy linked up with Kaytranada for the collaborative EP Ocean & Montana. After that sunny, laid-back release, though, Buddy has been cranking out higher-energy tracks like “That Much” (which has a really great video) and the A$AP Ferg collab “Black.” “Black” has a new video, and it’s … More »
If you wanted to argue that Common was a corny motherfucker — an argument that you could make without stretching any bounds of credulity — you wouldn’t have to look any further than last weekend’s Oscars. Common, who’s already won one Best Original Song Oscar, was nominated for another, for a song called “Stand Up … More »
Unless I’m forgetting someone, A$AP Ferg was the first major non-Atlanta rapper to record a single with Lil Uzi Vert. That alone means that Ferg, like his A$AP Mob colleague A$AP Rocky, knows how to spot a rising star. And on his new single “Kristi YamaGucci,” Ferg has recruited two guest verses from two … More »
ASAP Ferg is staying busy. Over the summer he collaborated with ASAP Mob on Cozy Tapes Vol. 2 and released his own 12-track mixtape, Still Striving, and now he’s working on a new album. Today, he partnered with Hennessy to share the album’s premiere single, “Family,” along … More »
Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg released his Still Striving mixtape a few months ago, and it featured a song called “The Mattress,” on which Ferg and his buddy A$AP Rocky rap over a decaying EDM beat about going from jumping on beds to hiding money in them. In director AWGE‘s colorful, chaotic, lo-res … More »
DJ Premier and A$AP Ferg have teamed up for “Our Streets,” the first single to be released on former Gang Starr manager’s Patrick Moxey’s’s newly relaunched Payday Records. “With Ferg, or anybody I work with, they already know my history so they know that I come from the 90s era,” DJ Premier said in a … More »
