Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg revealed plans for his upcoming sophomore album to “be out before the summer” in an interview with HotNewHipHop.com yesterday.
Ferg eluded to having to complete a few songs on the album as well as there being both substance and lyrics that he didn’t have before. Ferg said that compared to his previous album, there’s a lot more growth said HipHopDX.
I got a lot of songs done. But I don’t know if they all right yet. he said, I don’t wanna talk too much about it. I just know that people gonna love this album.”
Ferg’s, currently untitled, upcoming album will be the follow-up to his 2013 debut album Trap Lord.
Ferg also added what inspired the new changes in this album versus the experiences he had in making Trap Lord.
When I was doing Trap Lord I was stuck in Harlem. I’d never been nowhere. It came from a depressed state. It came from shit that I was seeing, and that I grew up seeing. Freg states, The next album is basically going to be the growth from that. I’ve been around the world two or three times already…and I’m gonna talk about a lot of the experiences.
Ferg also talked about the passing of A$AP Yams, who still holds a heavy influence on him. He credited Yams as the one who encouraged him to start rapping when Ferg originally thought rapping was “corny”
Yams is truly an Angel. Angels are people that God sent to Earth to complete a mission, and Yams completed his mission by getting us all on. If it wasn’t for Yams, I wouldn’t be rapping
