New Music To Know: A$AP Ferg Makes Harlem Proud With ‘Trap Lord’

The one thing you probably know about A$AP Ferg is that his album Trap Lord is in stores right now. This was the big takeaway from his A$AP Mob cohort Rocky when he stood alongside Jason Collins at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

After Jason Collins talked candidly about gay rights, Rocky, without missing a beat, went right in to saying “A$AP Ferg Trap Lord album in stores right now.” Tone deaf? Probably.  But it was the most amplified shout-out that Ferg has ever received.

“At the end of the day, it’s not really Rocky’s place to talk on that subject,” Ferg told“So, he just put my album on blast, and I ain’t mad at it.”

He laughs, “‘Trap Lord album in stores now.’ I respected that.”

Take Trap Lord home from the store, and it’s one of 2013’s most layered rap albums that seems both dense and unadorned. Like A$AP Rocky’s Live.Love.A$AP, it builds out from hip-hop’s past to become something new.
