A$AP Ferg Signs Deal With RCA Records
A$AP Rocky‘s crew is getting put on. Fellow A$AP Mob member A$AP Ferg has inked a deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records.
Ferg, a Harlem, N.Y., native, lays claim to the Chinza & Fly-produced ‘Work,’ an anthemic banger that finds the rapper rhyming of the trap lifestyle he’s so familiar with. Women and the ever-popular molly make up some of the lyrics of the song, which has garnered attention by radio mixshows including New York City’s Hot 97.1 and Power 105.1 stations.
“I’m just proud right now because this is everything we wished and hoped for,” Rocky says in a statement provided by RCA regarding Ferg’s signing. “A$AP Ferg worked hard for this and I put all my faith and backing into him. I feel like ‘Work’ is our generation’s ‘Sippin on Some Syrup’ [Three 6 Mafia feat. UGK] or ‘Chickenhead’ [Project Pat feat. La Chat & Three 6 Mafia], it has that feeling.”
‘Work,’ available for purchase on iTunes Jan. 22, debuted on A$AP Mob’s self-released mixtape, ‘Lord$ Never Worry.’ A$AP Ferg demonstrates more of his lyrical talents on the deluxe edition of A$AP Rocky’s debut LP, ‘Long.Live.A$AP,’ arriving Jan. 15. He appears on ‘Ghetto Symphony,’ which also features Gunplay.
