The A$AP Mob is known for their fashion sense and now A$AP Ferg is working with BAPE on a new artist collaboration. High Snobiety shares a photo of the Trap Lord t-shirt, a homage to Ferg’s debut album title.
Designed by Jay West, the artwork of the album fuses BAPE’s Baby Milo character with Ferg flair. High Snobiety shares that both Ferg’s album and the t-shirt will be released at an exclusive event in NYC at the BAPE Store on August 19.
Earlier this year, BAPE launched a series of high-profile collaborations to celebrate its 20th anniversary including Pharrell and Kanye West. MTV Style reported that the tees were so exclusive that fans could buy them in Japan for three days only.
In the meantime, Ferg is hard at work at giving Trap Lord a retro hip-hop feel. He told MTV News that Onyx and Bone Thugs-n- Harmony will be on the project. “I got some of the best of the best on there. It just got serious and more serious because my features are like Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. I got Onyxon the same song as B-Real.” He said, adding, “It’s a kind of legendary piece of work, it’s like art. You can’t really give good art away for nothing.”
The album is slated for wide release August 20.
