A$AP Ferg & DJ Premier link up for some vintage visuals.
For all those people who long for the days of "real hip hop," this one is for you. To be fair, anything DJ Premier touches tends to have that old-school flavor, as the legendary producer has never strayed far from his boom-bap, sample based aesthetic. And while A$AP Ferg has no trouble spitting over more contemporary production (as seen on Still Striving and Cozy Tapes Vol. 2,), the Mob's resident Trap Lord has always been, at his core, a rapper's rapper. In fact, hearing his deliver bars over some Premier production is something to behold, and I for one would welcome a little more of this Ferg.
Today, the duo slides through with an appropriately vintage video, which effectively captures the essence of early New York hip-hop. From Ferg's Adidas track suit, to the b-boy dance moves and autumnal color palette, "Our Streets" is a love letter to the style that paved their way. Check it out now.
