ASAP Ferg and Migos Supply the ‘Trap Anthem’
Between the upcoming A$AP Mob Cozy Tapes project and his own Always Strive and Prosper, there's plenty of reasons to be checking for A$AP Ferg in the new year. The Harlemite fed the streets last year with 2013's Trap Lord, and presides over his congregation once again with Migos-assisted "Trap Anthem."
The track is short in length but is sure to get trunks booming. On the hook, Quavo sets things off boldly, rapping, "Take the plug hold him up for ransom / That’s what I call a trap anthem." Ferg meanwhile skates over the beat, adding a modified hook of his own and later rapping, "Check how I rap in the booth / I’m letting the animal loose / I’m feeling like I’m the nigga that could kill it just don’t let it happen to you." It isn't anything groundbreaking for Ferg, who typically contorts his lyrics and flows like they're animal balloons.
It is difficult to place "Trap Anthem" but the repeated "cozy boys" drop suggests it might wind up on that compilation album. Ferg has slowly released details on his sophomore album, saying in January that it will be the story of his life and feature Missy Elliott, Chris Brown, Future, Rick Ross, and Swizz Beatz presumably among others. There's no release date as of yet for the album, but with Ferg's single "New Levels" with Future still making the rounds, it's a good guess that a second single and eventual tracklist shouldn't be too far off.
