ASAP Ferg Interview with Huffington Post

ASAP Ferg sat down with the Huffington Post while on his most recent Turnt & Burnt tour for a brief lesson on his upbringing and how it has made him who he is today. The Traplord designer also opened up about his forthcoming project "Still Striving". From the beginning of silk screening t-shirs in Harlem to designing jewelry and belts, Ferg always had a vision to create his own empire. 

 

"It’s only fitting that his son also works across disciplines. Darold D. Brown Ferguson, Jr., known better as, “A$AP Ferg,” is busy working on his third studio album, entitled “Still Striving.” But his body of work extends into fashion (his clothing line, “Trap Lord”) and video direction. He said, “I can rap really well, I can make songs really good, but at the end of the day, I want to create a world.”

 

In the video, Ferg discusses what he has learned from his father, desigining, why he decided to become a rapper, and much more.  

“Just know that you are equal to everybody else that made it. You’re equal to Michael Jackson. You could be bigger than Michael Jackson. You could be bigger than Michael Jordan. Just know that you can do it. They did it, it was possible, you could become bigger than them at it.”- ASAP Ferg
