A$AP Ferg made his late-night television debut last night (September 30) on Arsenio. Performing “Shabba,” a track off his debut album Trap Lord released last August.
A$AP Ferg took the stage with A$AP Rocky to perform the track, which references ’90s dancehall hit-maker Shabba Ranks. After deleting many of the expletives to fit the television broadcast, the song takes on new meaning.
On Trap Lord, Ferg collabs with Bone Thugs N Harmony, B-Real of Cypress Hill, and Onyx. In an interview with Radio.com, Ferg said that his new album is “a breath of fresh air” that he wanted to put out.
“I feel like hip-hop has been very stagnant. It’s been boxed up. I wanted to bring innovation and creativity to it. I’m glad to know that people are receiving it well and are loving it.”
