The Hamilton Heights, Harlem native A$AP Ferg is back on the
two years after the “Plane Jane” epidemic. Marinating in the
has done nothing but help Ferg bring his craft to the next
level. “Floor Seats” is a nine track twenty-eight minute journey into
current life of the New York emcee.
The 5th installment from A$AP Ferg
starts off with a validation
on the title track from the Harlem spiter. The Roofeeo
“Floor Seats” goes a lil something like this:
“Floor seats for the Knicks
Couple models blow a kiss
They don’t even want a pic
Wanna lick up on a- (Yeah Yeah)
I done made a couple hits
Goin hammer with the clique
God handed me the gift
Nothin. Slamming for a brick”
rest of the track rocks just as tough, with a few vocal tricks
thrown into the mix. The real shining star is the beat an instant
“Jet Lag” A$AP flexes over the Beat Billionaire production boasting
the spoils his craft has brought him.
“Wam” smacks you in the face from the jump as A$AP nimbly
hops through Tweek Tune’s production getting straight to the point
letting us all motherf****** laying in ditches/ I’ma aim with
“Wigs” featuring Asian Doll and “Butt Naked” featuring Rico
Nasty. Delv into the lusty world of the rap star,
leaving little to the
imagination. It’s dope to see to the unity in the game, both female’s
do their thing and feel at home on the beat.
“Pups” featuring A$AP Mob brother Rocky,
pays homage to
DMX’s “Where My Dogs At.” The duo switch back and forth
images of two dudes living out their dreams.
“Hummer Limo” Is a track were Ferg spits
with Asian women and spending his bread.
“Ride” Features a cameo from Ty Dolla Sign, who’s soulful
helps out an a track where Ferg seems a bit out of place.
“Dreams, Fairytales, Fantasies” closes the album out with an
dreamy beat, featuring Brent Faiyaz and his seductive
vocals. Love is the topic here done in a fun,
explicit, sexy way.
In closing “Floor Seats” is a decent
overall project. Ferg
all of his strengths and delves into some unfamiliar
territory. I give this project a 3.3 out of 5, the production is on point
a majority of tracks you will be shaking your hips too soon.
Lyrically Ferg does his thing nothing that makes you have to
rewind, but his bars are well above average with slick word play
and entertaining flow.
