A$AP Ferg has been dropping a lot of tracks in the last few months but his latest freestyle, “Petit Valley”, has everyone pausing their play buttons. “Wait, wait…hold up. Is he harmonizing?” To answer your question, yes…yes he is. Very Rare.
Playing homage to his Trinidad roots, his latest freestyle (which isn’t really a freestyle since he harmonizes more than actually spitting verses) combines Carnival Tabanca’s song “Bunji Garlin” and influences from Soca music. A lot more calmer than his more famous tracks like “Work” or “Shabba”, the song is more like a summer cake jam than anything. With island vibes and rhythms that make you want to sip coconuts with island side pieces, the track is by far the oddest track we’ve ever heard from the Trap Lord.
I know a lot of people are scratching their heads and asking questions like “My guy, you good?” But if you think about it, this track isn’t unusual for A$AP Ferg who is one of the more experimental guys in the game right now. By no means is this the best we’ve heard from Ferg but it isn’t a completely horrible song. We’ve heard A LOT worst, I mean who remembers when Nick Cannon was a rapper? (Yeah, take a moment to let that early 2000’s rap crisis sink back in). Regardless A$AP Ferg is still A$AP Ferg. Whether he’s harmonizing about island groupies or rapping about his crew in their Saint Laurent and Raf Simons fits, he is still bringing something original to the game.
