A$AP Ferg confirms: his father drafted the original "Bad Boy" logo.
Diddy's relationship vicarious relationship with A$AP Ferg dates back to the initial drafting of the Bad Boy logo, for the longest time a disputed issue amongst the NY families, but not anymore it seems. Diddy, who always regarded A$AP Ferg's father as an unforgettable childhood friend, had been criticized in the past for neglecting the elder "D-Ferg" before his untimely passing.
As of this moment, Diddy signaled an end to the rumored hostilities with a symbolic gesture towards D-Ferg's son A$AP Ferg, who as the Bad Boy mogul would contend, has done a grand job of carrying on his father's legacy. Diddy thus presented Ferg with his very own BB chain and pendant. Diddy even paid homage to "D-Ferg" with a tributary speech, with the Bad Boy chain dangling overhead.
"You family, you know what I'm saying," Diddy motions to the younger Ferg, before gracing him with the illustrious chain. "Me and your pops grew up together." Ferg would later document the affair in an Instagram clip that he proudly captioned, "The Saga Continues."
In a second Instagram post marking the symbolic gesture, A$AP Ferg added further context to the situation, by explaining his father's relationship to Diddy, and so on so forth. "What a lot of people don’t know is that my father created the Bad Boy logo.@diddy and my pops was 2 kids running round Harlem with a dollar and a Dream," Ferg explained. "I used to see this logo in my father's screen printing shop as a kid and always thought I was the baby in the logo I mean who else would it be?"
A$AP closed things off by thanking Diddy for showing him tons of support at the onset of his career, alluding to a motivational conversation the two shared while he waited anxiously to perform a set on his inaugural tour - but not without paying his respects to his father once more. RIP "D-Ferg."
