A$AP Rocky Speaks on His Instrumental LP, A$AP Ferg’s Artistic Growth
A$AP Rocky made plenty of noise earlier this year with his debut album, ‘Long. Live. A$AP.’ Now the Harlem spitfire is working on an instrumental album called ‘Beauty and the Beast: The Slow-Down Sessions, Vol 1.’
In an interview with FuseTV, Pretty Flacko says that he will release the beat album free online this summer to show people his production skills.
“I just got a passion for it, I don’t want to charge people for s—. I want to put it out and hopefully people will like it,” he says. “By the time I come around to do it on a professional note, I will be taken more serious. Actually, I don’t give a s— if they don’t take me serious or not, because my s— is jiggy, my s— is dope. ”
Meanwhile, Rocky is also helping fellow Harlemite A$AP Ferg get his project ready for the masses. The ‘Work’ rapper’s debut album, ‘Trap Lord,’ is due out this summer.
Rocky revealed that everyone was scared that Ferg was going to look and sound like him but clearly that’s not the case.
“Listening to Ferg’s album, it feels like he’s developed as an artist,” he says. “With A$AP, everybody’s fear was that everybody was going to come out sounding like me. But [Ferg's] doing his own thing that’s has nothing to do with me.”
A$AP Ferg’s ‘Trap Lord’ album, which features guest appearances from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Onyx, will arrive in stores Aug. 20.
