A$AP Ferg

A$AP Rocky’s be-grilled A$AP Mob comrade, one A$AP Ferg, has just signed on a solo basis to Rocky’s label, Sony’s Polo Grounds Music, which operates within the major’s RCA division. The rapper will release his first Sony-sanctioned single ‘Work’ via iTunes on 22 Jan.

A magnanimous A$AP Rocky, whose own debut LP ‘Long Live A$AP’ is released (at last) today, says this of his like-named peer: “I’m just proud right now because this is everything we wished and hoped for. A$AP Ferg worked hard for this and I put all my faith and backing into him”.

Speaking of work, this is ‘Work’:
