The Hood Pope is about to bless the game yet again. Not even three months after the release of Always Strive and Prosper, A$AP Ferg takes to Snapchat to announce a new project titled Still Striving.
While rocking a polo hat and grills in the black-and-white clip, Ferg says, “Oh by the way, I’m dropping a new project very soon. It’s going to be called Still Striving. Look out for it.” You can view the video on Ferg’s Snapchat account, ‘Devoni143.’
You can cop Always Strive and Prosper via iTunes for $9.99. The 19-track body of work contains features from the likes of ScHoolboy Q, Future, Big Sean, Migos, Lil Uzi Vert, Chris Brown, Missy Elliott and more. XXL gave the album an ‘XL’ rating in its review, which you can read here.
In the review, Chris Gibbons writes, “The first thing that listeners might notice is that the album is generally a little bit more accessible than Trap Lord. It’s not nearly as dark, especially when it comes to the production. Skrillex helps turn ‘Hungry Ham’ into a club-ready banger. On ‘Strive,’ Ferg and Missy Elliott rap on a straight-up bouncy track that’s night-and-day unlike what we’ve come to expect from the A$AP sound.”
In case you’ve been shleep, be sure to check out some of Fergenstein’s recent music video releases. He’s been on a run, dropping visuals for “Back Hurt” with Migos, “World Is Mine” with Big Sean, “Yammy Gang” with the rest of A$AP Mob and “Line Up the Flex” with Tory Lanez.
