If 2018 has been sorely lacking in something, it's the musical stylings of A$AP Ferg. Though he recently came through to hold it down on the Uncle Drew soundtrack, his exuberant nature was ultimately constrained by the family-friendly platform. Now, it would appear he's once again returned to the fold on his own terms, bringing forth a pair of new singles. While the drops are currently available in select international markets, their arrival bodes well for those seeking new Ferg music. Perhaps even a project. The night is young.
If you're keeping score, "Not The Boy" falls comfortably under the "dark banger" column, with an instrumental blending haunting vocals and a minor key chord progression. The energy remains kinetic, as Ferg lays down deadpan braggadocio, solidifying himself an old soul with references to Jay-Z's iconic "Big Pimpin." As for subject matter, Ferg seems content to weave a picture of hedonism, putting his fantasies on wax as he rattles off a checklist of must-see sex spots. In all fairness, the song comes with an admonishment of boyhood; therefore, it's only appropriate that his mindset is on some grown man shit.
