Earlier this week, A$ap Ferg, member of A$ap Mob, announced the release of his new Traplord collection.
About five years ago, Ferg released his debut album Trap Lord with features from his mob member A$ap Rocky and the legendary Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
The Harlem native created a streetwear clothing line to coincide with his album; which seems like a likely duo since the “Shabba” rapper comes from a line of designers. In fact, his father ran a shop in Harlem where he printed tees for hip-hop icons Heavy D and Diddy. Before he ran his own store, Darryl Ferguson Sr. worked with the great Dapper Dan who was a pioneer that combined high fashion with hood fashion.
Ferg’s Traplord University collection will be made up of a variety of sweatsuits. With designs from a university’s track team and fall toned colors, the new line is perfect for the fall season. You can check out the full collection here.

Atlanta rapper, Key!, drops a new song on his SoundCloud titled “Zach Morris”. For the youngins, Zach Morris was a popular, stylish jock in the hit show “Saved By The Bell”.
On the track, Key! compares himself to the popular jock while everyone else was Screech – the clumsy nerd, opposite of Zach Morris. Listen to the track below and give us your thoughts.
Rarely do we get to see rappers out of their element and when we do it can be very good or very bad. In the case of A$AP Rocky taking on a soul classic, the result was very good. Accompanied by a live saxophone and other instruments, Rocky crooned his way through the track effortlessly. Not only did he sound good, he definitely looked like he was enjoying himself. Watch the performance below.
By looking at the shoe, you might think it’s a ‘90’s chunky, skater shoe. But in his interview with HighSnobiety, Rocky clarifies that that was the inspiration. He wanted a skater/rave shoe. For us rave goers, you know how difficult it is to find a comfortable shoe that doesn’t uphold to the rave life. This shoe does exactly that. The SRLo is made up of different materials, has an extra chunky midsole, and a thick tongue that is branded by Awge.
While making this shoe, Rocky worked closely with Davey Mayhew, known legendary skater, who was the designer for Osiris D3. If you were a skater from the hood, then you know exactly how iconic this mash up was.
Now, many people in the sake community aren’t too happy with this new term Rocky has coined for the direction of his shoe but after doing some deep research on the skater life and rave life, it makes sense, right? So, skate rave. Just as it states, skaters & ravers coming together. From the thick exterior and thick soles, it’s basically everything a skater and rave goer could ask for.
We’re actually excited to see more of Rocky’s take on the skater life. Since Testing, he seems to be playing with this theme so let’s see what else the rapper has in store for us.
