Gulou is about to get gangsta. That's because burgeoning hip-hop star A$AP Ferg is set to take the stage at Yugong Yishan on September 14. The rapper's Beijing gig was announced in a press release by promoter Split Works.
As part of the A$AP Mob – lead by its most famous and charismatic member, A$AP Rocky – A$AP Ferg boasts a laid back flow that is frequently rife with hilarious punchlines. In 2013 he was voted Rookie of the Year at the BET Hip Hop Awards (broadcast by premium urban arts and culture network BET). That distinction was given to Ferg in lieu of his 2013 debut album, Trap Lord, which Rolling Stone called "Slow, silky and menacing, with twists of eccentricity, his debut is a finely constructed mood piece," while AllMusic raved "With the deep, dark, and delicious Trap Lord, A$AP Ferg enters the A$AP Mob's immersive murder music hall of fame, having crafted an album as out there and attractive as A$AP Rocky's official debut Long.Live.A$AP." The album was noted for its upbeat hit single "Shabba," an upbeat, dance hall inflected tune dedicated to lauded Jamaican musician Shabba Ranks that was made all the more popular by the release of its shamelessly goofy music video.
