Stoic and powered by swag, this Harlem rapper’s latest effort, Still Striving, offers a peek behind the grill and into the mind of one of A$AP Mob’s marquee emcees. As a fashionista, Ferg designs much of A$AP Mob’s official gear and logos, never shying away from the shock value of masonry and gothic inspirations. Ferg’s prowess on the mic is often overshadowed by the ascendance of his crew’s biggest name, A$AP Rocky. Still, Ferg has a powerful voice and is more than worth checking into—especially as he moves away from the trap sounds that launched his career.
