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.”
