Review: A$AP Ferg's "Always Strive And Prosper"
Review: A$AP Ferg's "Always Strive And Prosper" Apr 26, 2016 at 03:12pm
There are three rappers who blew up in the early 2010s that I've always grouped together in my head, though they do hail from different corners of the country and are some of the most enigmatic artists currently working in hip hop. The categorization's based mostly on first impressions, which is unfair, but also on realizing that those impressions were wrong.

What a tumultuous last few days it's been. Reports of Prince's sudden passing rocked us on Thursday, but then hours later we got a new A$AP Ferg album. About 48 hours after that, Lemonade arrived, effectively shutting down everything else on the internet at the time.

Is it just me, or have the past few weeks felt like the calm before the storm? After all of the TLOP hubbub died down (this is the first week in a long time that we haven't had a Kanye solo joint in our top ten list), we've had quite a lack of releases from rap's upper echelon. Teasers, singles, and release date announcements seem to keep flooding in, but this Friday, when A$AP Ferg releases Always Strive And Prosper, things will really get cooking.

Judging by what the rapper's been saying about it in interviews, we knew ASAP Ferg's upcoming album, Always Strive and Prosper, was going to be an ambitious move, and the varied list of contributors seemed to suggest it would be an eclectic batch, but the more we hear from it, the more it's clear that it's going to be even weirder than expected (in a good way, of course).

On last week's edition of Top Tracks, Drake locked down the highest two spots with new leaks, and appeared once more as a guest on PartyNextDoor's "Come And See Me," which landed at number eight. If you thought that was impressive, wait til you see this week's. The 6 God controls half of this week's list, despite the fact that all versions that appear on here are unofficial leaks.

ASAP Ferg has been speaking fairly candidly about the guests on his upcoming sophomore album, Always Strive & Prosper, in the months leading up to its release, but somehow we still weren't prepared for the large and diverse range of names on the tracklist, revealed today via Instagram.Among those featured on the album are Skrillex, Missy Elliott, ScHoolboy Q, Rick Ross, Lil Uzi Vert, Big Sean, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign, Chuck D, and "Mama Ferg".

They spent at least one night at SXSW making music at Lanez' mansion in the countryside, and it sounds like they have a special joint set figured out.

The ASAP Mob is busy in 2016. Just last week, we received the release date for ASAP Ferg's highly-anticipated sophomore album, meanwhile, the Cozy Boys Vol. 1 compilation is apparently on its way, and at the same time, the Mob are releasing new records every week as part of their Wavy Wednesdays series.

The top tracks lists of the last few weeks got a little stale, with some songs (Drake's "Summer Sixteen," Travi$ Scott's "Uber Everywhere" remix, Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz's "Gotta Lotta") appearing week after week without much in the way of competition showing up to unseat them. Well, that changes this week, where the top nine tracks on the site are all newcomers.

Last week was definitely dominated by SXSW, with most of the rap world seeming like they were down in Austin either to perform, kick it with some of their equals in the game, or announce mixtapes in creative ways.

After the excitement of new projects from Kevin Gates, Future, Young Thug, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, French Montana, and Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz, we seem to have hit a bit of a lull three months into 2016. Views From The 6 is (hopefully) in sight for April, and A$AP Ferg and ILoveMakonnen both should have new material out in the next few weeks, but March is definitely looking like a down month for hip hop's upper echelon.

We got an extra day of February this year, and while there aren't quite as many brand new tracks on that week's top ten list as the one that preceded it, we still got over 50% turnover.
