A$AP Ferg – “Strive” (Feat. Missy Elliott) (Stereogum Premiere)

Next week, A$AP Ferg will release his much-anticipated sophomore album Always Strive And Prosper, and it’s shaping up to be a monster. We’ve already heard “New Level” with Future, “Let It Bang” with Schoolboy Q, “World Is Mine” with Big Sean, and “Hungry Hams” with Skrillex and Crystal Caines. Today, we get to hear what might be the best track yet. On “Strive,” Ferg teams up with a resurgent, exploding-with-personality Missy Elliott, and the two of them tear up what sounds like a ’90s house track. DJ Mustard co-produced the track with Ferg’s regular collaborator Stelios Phili, and you can hear it below.

Always Strive And Prosper is out 4/22 on RCA. Read our Cover Story on Ferg here.
