A$AP Ferg has confirmed the release date of his new album Always Strive and Prosper. The rapper and member of A$AP Mob — which also includes A$AP Rocky — took to Twitter Tuesday to post the news that the album, the follow-up to 2013’s Trap Lord, will be available April 22 and that fans can pre-order it beginning March 25. He also shared a snippet of the Schoolboy Q-featuring “Let It Bang.”
In a recent interview with Stereogum, Ferg said the new album could be some of his most personal work yet. “I’m working backwards a little bit because A$AP blew up so fast, and ‘Work’ came, ‘Shabba’ came, and blew up so fast that [fans] didn’t really get a chance to get an inside look into my life,” he said. “So now it’s like I’m schooling all my fans and letting them know who I am. I’m giving them the lineage.”
