A$AP Ferg Signs Solo Deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records
With A$AP Rocky’s debut album set to hit shelves next week, we bring you a bit of more good news in regards to the A$AP Mob. Mob member A$AP Ferg has just been confirmed to have signed a solo deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records. The mob is currently signed through their sublabel A$AP Worldwide under the Polo/RCA, and now Ferg has his own deal for his own solo material. Having arguably stole the show on the crew’s joint mixtape Lord$ Never Worry, with tracks such as “Work,” it’ll be interesting to see what future tunes we get from the Trap Lord himself. Polo Grounds went on to confirm the signing and shared the following in a new press release:
I’m just proud right now because this is everything we wished and hoped for,” commented Rocky on Ferg’s signing. “A$AP Ferg worked hard for this and I put all my faith and backing into him. I feel like ‘Work’ is our generation’s “Sippin On Some Syrup” [Three 6 Mafia feat. UGK] or “Chickenhead” [Project Pat feat. La Chat & Three 6 Mafia], it has that feeling.
We’d like to say to congrats to the young man on his deal. Down below you can check Ferg’s latest interview with “A$AP Sway,” discussing the meaning of Trap Lord, meeting the A$AP Mob, and more on “Sway In The Morning.”
