When it became clear that A$AP Rocky was a full blown star, we started looking at his crew, the A$AP Mob, to see who might be next in line. There were many suitors (we see you Twelvy and Nast) but two tours, one group mixtape, and almost a year later we have a definitive answer. That answer is A$AP Ferg. Riding the wave of two back to back street bangers ("Work" and "Shabba"), Ferg officially dropped his debut album Trap Lord this week.
To celebrate, we had the Young Lord himself come by the Complex offices, sip on a little something, and tell us about his favorite albums. The list is pretty representative of where Ferg finds himself musically. It's full of New York superstars (a city he proudly calls his own), tride and true hip-hop legends (something he's hopes to become), and artists he feels excelled by stepping outside of the norm (something his debut album most certainly does). Oh, and he's also got Selena's greatest hits on there. Check out A$AP Ferg's 25 Favorite Albums.
