A$AP Ferg has already released singles with Future, Big Sean and Schoolboy Q in preparation for his second studio album Always Strive And Prosper. Among the artists appearing on the Harlem rapper’s new album is Skrillex, who provides the buoyant, scratchy beat on “Hungry Ham,” an ode to Ferg’s Hamilton Heights neighborhood that cameos additional vocals by Crystal Caines.
"All my features just happened," Ferg told Stereogum. "[At first] I didn’t have any features on it. Just to get a well-rounded album, I wanted to get guests and friends."
Ferg's stacked Always Strive and Prosper also features appearances by Future (on first single "New Level"), Rick Ross, Big Sean, Chris Brown, Schoolboy Q, Missy Elliott, Ty Dolla $ign, Chuck D, the A$AP Mob and more. Producers include Clams Casino, Stargate, Lex Luger and DJ Khalil. Ferg's new album arrives April 22nd.
