It looks like ASAP Ferg is back in the studio working on his next album. In an Instagram post, the rapper announced his plans via a screenshot that read: “Working on my album at the moment.” It seems like a lot to handle for an artist who juggles his solo work with collaborative mixtapes with ASAP Mob, not to mention managing the clothing brand Trap Lord.
The upcoming project doesn’t have a title or release date yet, but it’s likely that it will come out before the end of the year. Ferg and the rest of the ASAP Mob seem to be in creation mode since last summer's Cozy Tapes Vol. 2, which was released shortly after his last project Still Striving.
Not only is the Harlem MC back in the studio, he’s also going on the road again; having just announced the Mad Man Tour alongside Denzel Curry and IDK. The short tour will start in Philly in late February and end in New York City in April, giving him some time to work on the project before the tour kicks off.
This is the second time this week ASAP Ferg has been in the news, as information recently surfaced about the shady handling of producer fees from his first album Trap Lord. Producers of the gold-certified single "Shabba" Marvel Alexander and Snugsworth claim to only have received $500 from RCA. Later, other producers added their own experiences with labels referring to albums as mixtapes for the purpose of skipping out on full producer fees.
