    A dark, trippy and gritty journey through Ferg's mystical yet scarily realistic world, similar to Rocky's yet more 90's hip-hop, Reggae, trap and gothic inspired. Rocky manages to greatly balance two sides of hip-hop. Modern day trap with 90's rugged style, coming out complicated yet addicting. While Ferg follows many modern day rap trends on the album (gold, cars and women), he still manages to shine and stand out from the crowd as his own man with his own style that is hard to explain but can be seen thoroughly through out the album. Although it would have been nice to see Ferg spit over some more 90's hip-hop beats, he still widely attracts an audience with his flexible flow and sometimes Jamaican reggae sounding voice. This can be seen mainly and impressively on tracks like "Let It Go' and the "Work Remix" where, in both, we can hear him slightly tweaking his voice and flow to match with the beats, giving the audience an adventurous vibe. During a full cohesive listen, Ferg will most definitely take you into his dark haunted world, were you can almost see the murders and other gruesome events happening right in front of you. A world were gritty rappers like Method Man and Biggie would fit right into and what Nas would describe as the "Dungeons Of Rap". Ferg has legendary old-timers and new-comers alike, all who (except for French Montano) really add to the depth of the album. Ferg may not be one of the best rappers out right now, but when it comes to Trap and the underground side, he sure does have a serious suggestion for being considered "Lord". Full Review »

    I am stunned that I am not calling this a complete and utter failure. As a whole, is it a good album? Nah, but is pure hot unadulterated trash? Nah. It is actually ok for what it is, much like Stay Trippy. I am slightly impressed by A$AP Ferg, though I wish he focused on making more songs like "Cocaine Castle". Full Review »

    A$AP Ferg's Trap Lord is probably the best A$AP Mob project since A$AP Rocky's unforgettable 2011 mixtape, Live. Love. A$AP with good production and great features from A$AP Rocky and from legendary rappers, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony & Onyx and many more. The album is very hype and delightfully lyrical but it doesn't set the bar high for Ferg as the album cuts short at 13 tracks and falters with sour tracks like 4:02 and Dump Dump. Although the album is still a solid listen especially 4 A$AP fans. Full Review »
