A$AP Ferg’s acronymic Always Strive And Prosper, which he divulged about in our recent cover story, is due out next month. We’ve heard the banger “New Level” featuring Future, and an unofficial leak of the “Let It Bang” surfaced yesterday, but today we’ve got official audio for the latter along with a set of visuals.
The “Let It Bang” clip opens with a snippet of another track from the album, “Psycho,” which is about Ferg’s uncle on the streets of Hungry Ham in Harlem, then a gunshot transition marks a quick cut to the ScHoolboy Q assist and marries the New York of old and new. The clip is definitely a NYC affair, featuring Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s son, Young Dirty Bastard (naturally), a cameo from Meech of the Flatbush Zombies, bodegas, playground courts, Jesus pieces, Timberlands, and hoodies. Q (A$AP Q as the A$AP Mob calls him) comes in dipped in black-and-gold to spit his verse with plenty of energy and rapid jump cuts while Ferg dons a stocking mask brandishing a huge butcher knife. Peep it.
Always Strive And Prosper is out 4/22 on RCA.
