Coming off releasing the video for ‘East Coast Remix’, Ferg has his first album of 2017, ‘Still Striving’. The success of his ‘Traplord’ album and subsequent ‘New Level’ single, Fergs success in 2016 will be hard to top but ‘Still Striving’ is a fantastic start.
What immediately stands out on this album is the wide variety of features highlighted by the Busta Rhymes/Rocky/Dave East/French Montana/Rick Ross/Snoop combination on ‘East Coast Remix’. Ferg goes into the past and present of hip hop with everyone from Famous Dex to Cam’ron to Lil Yachty to Meek Mill, this album has a feature that every hip hop fan can get excited about. While the features on the album are crazy, Ferg shows he is capable of carrying himself as ‘Plain Jane’ stands out amongst the features with the incredibly catchy ‘Ferg is the name/Ben Baller did the chain’ hook.
A$AP Ferg and the rest of the mob are poised to run August with ‘Cozy Tapes Vol. 2: Too Cozy’ to drop on the 25th. In the mean time, stream the 14-track album from the one of the mobs best down below.
