Beyonce's surprise album, Lemonade, which dropped after her HBO special of the same name, is currently hogging all the spotlight. Remember, though, a couple of big albums dropped yesterday, the most notable being A$AP Ferg's long-awaited sophomore effort, Always Strive and Prosper. The 18-track album is loaded with guest features, and it clearly encompasses all the best work that Ferg has put in since his last album, 2013's Trap Lord. In fact, the standard version could only fit so many tracks, and Ferg decided to bless the physical release -- available only at Best Buy -- with two additional songs.
The Best Buy bonus version includes a new collab with Migos titled "Back Hurt" as well as "Don't Mind," featuring French Montana and Fabolous. Thankfully, for those not in proximity to a Best Buy, the latter track is now available for your streaming pleasure.
"Don't Mind" is a cold New Yorker's boss anthem, filled with the club energy that both French and Ferg have helped usher back into their city in recent years. Any time an all-NYC collab goes down, Fab always comes through, and "Don't Mind" is no exception (save for his cringeworthy Dee Brown reference). It's produced by The Mekanics and Burd & Keyz.
Y'all think this should've made the original album? Stream that here, and stay tuned for a stream of Ferg's collab with Migos.
