Fresh off his Art Basel art exhibition with photographer Brock Fetch also titled ‘Always Strive And Prosper’ and Adidas Skateboarding collaboration – Traplord x Adi-Ease, each project is dedicated to A$AP Yams, as are his words about losing Ferg on ‘Tatted Angel’ – “Sometimes I wish Yams was never usin’, When we toured the U.K. I knew I’d lose him“. The album is slated to feature a track with Future called ‘New Levels’, plus Skrillex, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign and of course A$AP Mob.
Hit-Boy comes through on production, complimenting the deeply personal reflections from Ferg who tweeted an intro to the track stating – “A few words to my day 1s to let y’all know what I been going through“. Ferg’s been making moves, making mo money but also living through mo problems – this shit is real talk about girl problems, fake friends, and a tribute to A$AP Yams.
