Aug 19, 2013The rapper is an excellent tour guide through this warped landscape of thrills and chills, and even if Rocky remains the A$AP Mob's most obvious and outgoing choice, there's an argument to be made that the more interesting one is Ferg, a Trap Lord if there ever was one.
Aug 25, 2013A dark, trippy and gritty journey through Ferg's mystical yet scarily realistic world, similar to Rocky's yet more 90's hip-hop, Reggae, trapA 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".… Expand

Sep 17, 2013This year's TRAP LORD!
This whole project was filled with great beats, catchy hooks and hilarious lines. To be honest, Ferg is a bit betterThis year's TRAP LORD!
This whole project was filled with great beats, catchy hooks and hilarious lines. To be honest, Ferg is a bit better at freestyles, but this was not something meant to be read that deep on lyrically. The mc is just having a good time behind the mic, and his flow is what I find entertaining and interesting about him. Actually he's strongest point, he's flow is great.
An energetic debut from Ferg.
Trap music really ain't my cup of tea, but Ferg is pushing the limits with it.
Quite underrated if you ask me.… Expand

TheyNot the best album in the world, but great for a debut. The beats on this album are what I would describe as a different style of trap. They take influence from typical modern trap beats, although adding a flavor that separates the beats on this album from other trap beats. Ferg's lyrics on the album aren't anything extremely special but he is skilled as a rapper and has a good flow. These things all add up to an album worth listening to, earning the album an overall grade of B. Highlights: "Shabba", "Lord", "Fergivicious". Worst song: "4:02" (which shouldn't really be judged considering it's more of an interlude).… Expand
Aug 21, 2013I 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 unadulteratedI 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".… Expand
