A$AP Ferg

A$AP Ferg is planning to follow last year's Ferg Forever mixtape with Always Strive and Prosper, his first official full length since his debut, Trap Lord. It's due out at some point in 2016, but the first single "Tatted Angel" is out now. It was produced by the killer beatamaker Hit-Boy, who's done Kanye & Jay Z's "Niggas In Paris," Nicki Minaj & Beyonce's "Feeling Myself," Kendrick Lamar's "Backseat Freestyle" and way more, and it's a slowed-down atmospheric jam that has my hopes high for this album. Listen below.

As previously mentioned, Ferg is touring in 2016, providing direct support for G-Eazy, with openers Marc E. Bassy and Nef The Pharaoh. That show already includes sold-out shows at Terminal 5 on January 23 & 24, and now includes a third show on January 25. TIckets for the newly-added date go on Google Play presale today (12/8) at 4 PM, artist presale Wednesday (12/9) at 10 AM, AmEx presale Wed at noon, and on sale to the general public Friday (12/11) at noon.
