A$AP Ferg – “Hood Pope”

artworks-000054071714-ub8yze-t500x500

The last minute single to A$AP Ferg’s Trap Lord (out now) “Hood Pope” acts as maybe the strangest and most distinctive track.  It gives you a glimpse into the varied world that is probably (haven’t heard the whole thing yet) Trap Lord.  It includes some of A$AP Ferg’s signature creepy reverbed-out lines and some Jamaican sounding melodies.  The track definitely belongs in Ferg’s repertory but functions as a more introspective cut than the party favorite “Shabba” that preceded it.  Ferg sees himself as a savior figure to misguided youth in his native Harlem—”A bunch of hooligans need churchin’ / I’m the hood pope these my children”.  Get Trap Lord out today.
