A$AP Mob member and Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg delivered a whopping four new tracks in one day: "Plain Jane", "Nia Long", "Aw Yeah", and "Furious Ferg". Each of these tracks brings their own vibe but they are all heaters. He is currently on the road for Future's "Nobody Safe" Tour but it seems like the Hood Pope has something up his sleeve for 2017.
On "Furious Ferg", Ferg teamed up with Tommyy Lovee on the production and they created a fast paced, loud, instrumental that hits harder than a Mayweather is going to hit McGregor. For real, this one sounds like it could be found on the Scifi channel. The melody going on in the background is something that sounds like a spaceship just started up and is about to take a stroll through Harlem. Ferg uses this as an opportunity to shout out his father who died a few years back on the hook. You can definitly tell Ferg is tired of messing around and decided to step up to the plate on this one as he brings his best flow and wordplay he possibly could, and he knocked it out of the park.
"Plain Jane" is one of those tracks that you hear for the first time that leaves you with a face of disgust because this track is straight fire. He decided to hop on fellow Beast Coast member Kirk Knight's instrumental for this one. The two linked up on the track "Setup" earlier this year and it worked out perfectly so it is no surprise that the two would work together again. This one is also fast paced with loud 808's and a melody that sounds like Kirk flipped the classic "Halloween" song from the Michael Myers movies. This one will be stuck in your head all day because Ferg snaps again. When Ferg first comes in, it sounds like he got some inspiration from the classic Three 6 Mafia track, "Slob On My Knob" with the flow for this intro. Not only does he shout out the late A$AP Yams and the rest of the mob, he also uses this track to apply some humor as he talks about the things he would do to pop star Rihanna that I don't think would be appropriate for this post. Just listen to it, okay?
Man, who would have thought Ferg would look for none other than Lil Yachty for a feature but man did this work out perfectly. With production from Maaly Raw, Ferg and Boat take turns doing their thing all over this one. The beat takes me back to the 2013 Trap Lord days that made people realize why he claimed to be the Trap Lord in the first place. This one is a little slower than the previous two but it still knocks. What really stands out to me is the drum pattern. With the 808's hitting and a calm melody in the back, these drums really pull this track together and sets the two up perfectly to murder this. Yachty uses his singing more on this one but then comes into it with a nice flow that really rides this beat. Ferg did his thing on this one as well, especially with the hook. You'll be singing along to this one all day.
It is hard to go 4/4 in one day but Ferg did it. On this last track, Ferg draws inspiration from the famous actress Nia Long who is known for her work with The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Boyz n the Hood. HighDefRazjah cooked this one up for Ferg as he crafted this insane trap anthem with a beat drop that will have you rewidning over and over just to hear it again. When the beat does drop, Ferg brings this insane flow that is perfect for this one as the Hood Pope raps about legends like Biggie Smalls and 2pac, The mob, and how he is always flexin on you. This track is perfect for anyone riding around with their crew that is looking for the perfect turn up track.
Four tracks in one day is something we dont see often. It is even more impressive that all of these were heat and can only build more hype for whatever Ferg has planned for this year.
