Hip-hop Heavyweight Announces Festival Sideshow for Melbourne Fans

Since rising to the top of the hip-hop crop with A$AP Mob, A$AP FERG has become an artist unafraid to take his craft to thrilling new places. Today, the US rapper has announced a one-off show for Melbourne fans at 170 Russell on Wednesday, March 4. This will be A$AP Ferg’s onlysummer sideshow to his already confirmed appearance at Hidden Festival in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney. 

Darold D. Brown Ferguson  Jr., known  by  his stage  name, A$AP FERG is  an American artist from Harlem, New York most known for his rapping and song writing abilities. Ferg was born on October 20, 1988, in Harlem, NY to Trinidadian parents. His father, Darold Ferguson, owned a Harlem boutique and printed shirts and designed logos for record labels; including designing the Bad Boy records logo.Before starting his music career, A$AP Ferg was heavily into art and design. Inspired by his father, who died of kidney failure, he ended up studying fashion and fine arts at the High School of Art & Design. While in school, Ferg began launching his “Devoni Clothing", through which he designed and distributed high-end belts, which had been worn by Chris Brown and Swizz Beats before his rap fame.

A founding member of Harlem’s A$AP Mob, A$AP Ferg and A$AP Rocky were originally planned to be the dynamic duo from the A$AP Mob, but they found more success as solo artists, beginning with Ferg’s first major hit ‘Work’landed as the main single for the A$AP mob tape “Lords Never Worry”. After  signing  with  RCA  in  2013, ‘Work Remix’debuted featuring Schoolboy Q, Trinidad James and French Montana. The Platinum record ‘Work Remix’and ‘Shabba Ranks’were Ferg’s stand out songs for his debut Project “Trap Lord” that was mostly composed of a dark cinematic sound that he created with his longtime producer Frankie P. His first album also allowed him topay respect  to  his  fashion  roots  as  he  collaborated  with  Bape  and  Trap  Lord,  (his  clothing  company  that  carries  the same name as his debut album, that he started from saving up his per diem money from his first tour he was on with the A$AP Mob and Drake) to create a Bape Trap Lord T-shirt in commemoration of the album dropping.

2014 brought the arrival of his new mixtape “Ferg Forever” hosted by DJ Drama which had the 2015 hit ‘dope walk’on it. A year later ‘New Level feat Future’ debuted as the lead single for his next project “Always Strive and Prosper”, the record ended up going platinum and solidified A$AP Ferg’s penchant for making hit records. Following the success of ‘New Level’, his next record off of “Still Striving” would be his biggest solo record to date, “Plain Jane” released in 2017 and has got 3x platinum.

2018 saw the release of A$AP Mob’s “Cozy Tapes, Vol. 2”, which landed #6on the Billboard 200 with A$AP Ferg playing  a  key  role  on  the  compilation  album. In  2019, A$AP  Ferg  has  been flexing his business muscle as he’s recently released a Bicycle with Redline Bikes, Signed deals with Tiffany & Co., Hennessy, Adidas, G-Shock, and Revlon, all while prepping for release of two new projects on the way. This one-off Melbourne show  willdeliver thedefinitive A$AP Ferg  experience, recalling  past glories  while  boldly exploring new and fascinating soundscapes and styles. Don’t miss out!
