When it was revealed that A$AP Mob had inked a $1.5 million record deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, it was only expected that members would soon be lining up solo deals of their own. Now, in a recent press release, it looks like the A$AP Ferg is the first Mob member to sign a solo deal.
News broke earlier today that A$AP Ferg has officially signed a solo record deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, the same imprint to which A$AP Rocky is signed. The Harlem native’s first official release with the label will be the iTunes single version of his hit track “Work.”
“I’m just proud right now because this is everything we wished and hoped for,” said his music partner A$AP Rocky. “A$AP Ferg worked hard for this and I put all my faith and backing into him. I feel like ‘Work’ is our generation’s ‘Sippin On Some Syrup’ [by Three 6 Mafia and UGK] or ‘Chickenhead’ [by Project Pat, La Chat and Three 6 Mafia], it has that feeling.”
A$AP Ferg is also currently working on establishing he own clothing Trap Lord.
