It's been two years since A$AP Ferg released the Still Striving mixtape. His last studio album, Always Strive and Prosper, came out three years ago. More tunes seem to be on the way.
The New Yorker was back in the studio this week with legendary super-producer Timberland. Both creators posted about the experience on their respective Instagram pages.
Timbo's IG video included Ferg talking about the musical direction of his forthcoming project. The A$AP Mob representative expressed his desire to now make music larger than life.
"I already made the hit records, I already made the anthems. I went to art school. My major was fashion and fine arts," said Ferg. "My background is art, so with music, I feel like, it's kind of been a little two-dimensional. I'm not taking away from what I did, but music that I f*ck with does not reflect in my music yet to this day."
The son of a Harlem boutique owner went on to name Mary J. Blige, Rick James, Seal, Hall & Oates, and Tears for Fears as acts that are among his current inspirations. Ferg added, "I haven't went to the extent of becoming an artist completely, musicality on another level. That's what I want to do. It's like, 'Alright, f*ck what people love hearing from me.'"
