ASAP Ferg released his Still Striving mixtape yesterday (8/18) and he sat down with the Everyday Struggle crew (minus Joe Budden) to talk camaraderie with New York artists, the growth of the ASAP Mob and much more.

The ASAP Mob came in at a time when the music scene was way different; hip-hop alone has gone through many changes in the last five-six years. They influenced a lot of people, but let’s remember, they were also influenced by a lot of people.

“I’m gonna have to say #1 for Dipset, because I was able to walk through Harlem and see my favorite rappers there,” Ferg said. “I love G-Unit because of hard Fifty was going. You know, getting a team that was just a lethal. You had Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, all of them. And he was working with a West Coast producer.”

Ferg then went on to name Wu-Tang and whether or not there’s a future for rap crews. “There’s a definitely a future, because there’s a bunch of friends coming up and they want to make music together.”
