A$AP Ferg Talks DJ Khalil Collaboration, New York Rap’s Next MC & His ‘Problematic’ Uncle [Exclusive Interview]
The last time A$AP Ferg visited The Boombox, he taught a lesson in hip-hop slang. Any fan knows the Harlem, N.Y., rapper has a way with words with one listen to his debut album, ‘Trap Lord.’ From the drug tales of ‘Cocaine Castle’ to the conscious lyrics of ‘Hood Pope,’ Ferg crafted a body work that touches all bases.
Now that the 25-year-old rhymer has an album out for public consumption, he’s already thinking of his next step. Collaborations for a sophomore LP have come to mind and there’s a certain “genius” West Coast producer he’s aiming to collaborate with.
Then there’s the fact that he’s pushing the New York rap movement to new heights. So who does he think will follow his lead? Watch as Fergenstein sits with The Boombox editor Georgette Cline to discuss who he’s looking at to rise as the city’s next MC, his favorite hip-hop skit, the “problematic” uncle that made an impact on his life and his collabo wish list.
