A$AP Rocky, Ferg and more talk about the early days of A$AP Mob and the making of Rocky's "Purple Swag."
Complex's "Magnum Opus" series has artists look back on some of their most successful songs or albums and describe the "making of" process. Today, A$AP Mob get their own episode to recount the genesis of A$AP Rocky's "Purple Swag," the first song that alerted the world to the crew's movement.
Interviewing Rocky, Ferg, Bari, Ty Beats and various people involved in the making of the song and/or video, the video team gives us a pretty exhaustive picture of the scene surrounding Rocky while he made the song. As a surprise, Bun B steps on at the end of the video to talk about the song's Houston influence.
