It’s always good vibes when we see ASAP Ferg. Today, since he’s in town for G-Eazy’s tour, he swung by Sway in the Morning and dropped some gems.

Although he’s an ASAP Mob member, its important that you get to know him as an individual. From his different style of music, to his fashion sense — even down to his Adidas — custom made by him of course.

With an album coming out “very soon,” titled, ALWAYS STRIVE AND PROSPER, Ferg opens up about some special studio sessions.

While hanging in the lab with Madonna — no big deal — she revealed her son put her on to his music. He even had Work as his ringtone!

When he went in-studio with Missy Elliott and Timbaland, he only intended on playing one song — which turned into playing his whole album. Ferg even reveals that Missy paused the album to tell Timbo — “this is the music I want to make!” Did we mention Magoo was in-studio too?

Making that session even sweeter, Timbaland revealed that Jay Z was in-fact the one who put him on to ASAP Ferg’s music.

Watch below for more of his dope behind-the-scene stories, text convos with Missy plus a dope introduction to his new artist Crystal Cains.

… you know we couldn’t let them leave with out spitting a 16, right?! Enjoy.
