A$AP Ferg Gets Spiritual on ‘Hood Pope’

A$AP Ferg Hood Pope
RCA Records

Rapper A$AP Ferg is slowly becoming the savior of the streets. His new song, ‘Hood Pope,’ is a spiritual testament to his life growing up in Harlem.

Produced by VERYRVRE, the plodding track boasts a bass-heavy beat and ethereal production as Ferg raps about the perils of the street life.

“Big money s— we earning / A bunch of hooligans need churching / I’m the Hood Pope, these my children / And I’ll be their Donny McClurkin,” he preaches.

Ferg then switches to a sing-songy flow as he contemplates the struggles of life and death.

“And I’m smoking my weed, put me in my zone / Demons chasing me, ’cause they want my dome / And I carry the heat, and I sleep with the chrome / Cause I’m in some beef, and they want my dome,” he harmonizes on the track.

‘Hood Pope’ is vastly different from his turnt-up anthems like ‘Work’ and ‘Shabba,’ but it’s still a certified street banger with its hazy productions.

If you like Ferg’s song, you can cop it for free with a pre-order of ‘Trap Lord’ via iTunes. The album, which features guest appearances from Onyx and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, will hit the streets Aug. 20.
