Although his thoughts are strong on Trap, he praises artist like XXXTentacion, ASAP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, and more. Ferg says he’s listening to a lot of R&B, because he’s not a fan of the way rappers do anything especially they way they dress and act.
He states that he can’t learn anything from rappers (not including the Jay-Z’s, K’Dots, Cole’s etc). His feelings toward Hip Hop has become synonymous with pop music.
