A$AP Ferg Outlines Plans for Collaborative Album with A$AP Rocky, Explains 'Trap Lord' Concept
Published Aug 19, 2013A$AP Mob rapper A$AP Ferg has been gaining serious momentum for tomorrow's (August 20) release of his RCA debut Trap Lord. He and Mob brother A$AP Rocky have shown chemistry on previous collaborations like "Kissin' Pink," "Ghetto Symphony" and recent smash "Shabba." Turns out fans of the Ferg/Rocky doubleheader are in for a treat.
In an interview with Exclaim!, Ferg revealed he and Rocky are definitely planning a collaboration album, adding a brief disclaimer: "We haven't had too many conversations about it, but all of our management and everybody around us think we should."
Ferg did not set a solid date for the joint album, clarifying that he and Rocky are "just working on our projects, trying to master our craft before we hit the world over the head with the duo."
The NY rapper also explained the concept for Trap Lord as being a character he inhabits: "Trap Lord is the Robin Hood for the hood. He'll rob to give back to the hood... He has all of these homeless kids that he'll give clothes, food and money to."
Zeroing in on certain key tracks, Ferg goes on to explain that the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony-featuring "Lord" and "Cocaine Castle" represent what he calls "the type of sound I wanted to put out to the people — that's going to change the sound of music."
