A$AP Ferg – “Strive” f. Missy Elliott (prod. DJ Mustard)

blame it on Meka April 14, 2016

With his moment of truth, Always Strive AndProsper, arriving April 22nd, A$AP Ferg has let loose a medley of singles in support of it, with each showcasing his eclectic and multilayered style. From his street sensibilities (“Let It Bang“) to far out (“Hungry Ham“), Ferg now hits the club scene with his latest offering, “Strive.”

With some help from the legendary Missy Elliott, producers DJ Mustard and Stelios Phili flip Alicia Myer’s “I Wanna Thank You” for a dance-oriented track which belies its aspirational and motivational lyrics. While Ferg is clearly aiming for the Top-40 stations with this, the underlying message — which is to inspire those to tap into their full potential and achieve greatness — is not to be ignored either.
