ASAP Ferg has released a video for his new song “Shabba,” which features his long-time friend and collaborator ASAP Rocky.
If you haven’t already heard the record and are wondering if there’s any relation to the title name and the dancehall artist, then you are correct.
As reported by hiphopwired.com:
“If A$AP Ferg’s ‘Shabba’ didn’t pique your interest initially, that should change after seeing the accompanying visual. Alongside A$AP Rocky and the entire A$AP Mob (or at least a good portion of them), Fergenstein introduces viewers to the lifestyle of the young, rich and famous, Harlem style… Other scenes are equally random, albeit entertaining. But things come to a head towards the end of the treatment, when the real Shabba Ranks shows face to party with the New York City collective.”
Listen to the song a few times and it starts to grow on you and now the accompanying video helps to burn it into your memory.
According to complex.com:
“In the new video for A$AP Ferg’s song ‘Shabba,’ all the A$AP members come out in full force and are at peak ‘mobness.’ The result is an entertaining romp through a gothic mansion which features a special cameo from Mr. Loverman himself. If you don’t think Ferg’s all white turtleneck outfit is the freshest thing you’ve seen in a minute, you’re doing it wrong. Ferg’s much anticipated debut album, Trap Lord, is slated for Aug. 20 release.”
As stated ASAP Ferg is slated to put out his debut album next month. He’s best known for his single “Work” which ended up being remixed with ASAP Rocky, Trinidad James and French Montana to name a few. And if your unfamiliar with the “ASAP” nickname and the similarity with ASAP Rocky, ironically its some what similar to dancehall and “Ranks.”
As noted on wikipedia.com:
“Friends since high school, ASAP Rocky recognized that Ferg had an ‘impeccable hustle game’ and pushed Ferg to continue rapping as much as possible. They later joined the hip-hop collective ASAP Mob, from which they both adopted their respective monikers. Since 2010, they collaborated on various songs such as ‘Get High,’ ‘Kissin’ Pink’ and ‘Ghetto Symphony,’ the latter being from Rocky’s chart-topping major label debut, Long. Live. ASAP.”
