There’s little question that expectations are running high for A$AP Ferg’s second full-length album.
With Always Strive and Prosper dropping sometime in the next month, the Harlem rapper has unveiled a few more tantalising details about the forthcoming LP.
Speaking with Stereogum the rapper revealed that hew worked both Grimes and Skrillex to create a new track for the album. Titled Hungry Ham, the collaboration came about after the three linked up on the set for Haim‘s MY Song 5 video clip. In the rapper’s own words the track was described as “electro-leaning, club-friendly and easily able to traverse a broad range of fans.”
It’s not the first time Skrillex and the rapper have worked together, with the dupstep producer also having lent his talents on Ferg’s fellow A$AP Mob member, A$AP Rocky’s track Wild For The Night from Ferg much lauded 2013 debut Trap Lord.
The album will also feature a slew of guest appearances including Missy Elliott, Chris Brown, Future, Schoolboy Q, Madonna and Rick Ross. But if that wasn’t enough, Ferg’s latest will also feature production from Clams Casino, Lex Luger, Stargate and DJ Khalil.
Providing some further insight into the forthcoming LP, Ferg reflected, “I’m working backwards a little bit because A$AP blew up so fast, and Work came, Shabba’ came, and blew up so fast that [fans] didn’t really get a chance to get an inside look into my life. So now it’s like I’m schooling all my fans and letting them know who I am. I’m giving them the lineage.”
