A$AP Ferg is a representative of NYC's A$AP Mob, a crew manifest in hazy beats and cliché glamour. On his album Trap Lord, Ferg has appropriated the gritty South trap music made popular by Three 6 Mafia, retrofitting it with occasional breaks into DJ Screw-codeine territory. Although the production is inspired, lyrics on songs like "Hood Pope" suffer from redundant opulence and an obvious Messiah complex, evidenced by music videos where he endures a staged crucifixion and leads communion. Regardless, the ominous tone of the backtrack enables A$AP Ferg's delivery to get the club bouncing by switching up the flow and attacking the beat with the sing-song flair that hallmarks a proper anthem.
