A year ago, people could not stop talking about A$AP Rocky. Long Live Rocky, his debut, stayed #1 on the hip hop charts for weeks. Other rappers started pitch shifting their voice down three octaves and spitting faded lyrics over slowed down cuts. A$AP Ferg, on the other hand, wasn’t on anyone’s radar. Yet. But things change, and they change fast. These days, you can’t walk three blocks without hearing something Ferg-related. Whether it’s the Trap Lord shrine recently erected in LES or his video for “Shabba Ranks,” homie is all over the place. Rocky has reached a new echelon of fame, but let’s hope that it doesn’t have him slipping…

Is the #TrapLord is about to take over??
