A$AP Ferg "Strive" (ft. Missy Elliott)
A$AP Ferg is showing off a different side of himself in his latest tease from his upcoming Always Strive and Prosper. De facto title track "Strive" has Fergenstein and Missy Elliott flexing on a house-pop groove.

Producers DJ Mustard and Stelios Phili's '90s-style blend of electric piano and digi-clap snare work support Ferg's carpe diem-leaning hook ("get off your ass and create your life"). He also drops off a motor-mouthed verse about his family pushing him to succeed more than drug-dealing Uncle Terry.

Missy hops on the back end of the track to say some prayers and weigh in on the state of her Auntie Jean.
