ASAP Ferg Releases New Track Featuring Missy Elliott
A$AP Ferg raps about the aspirations his mother had for him; she didn't want him to end up like his Uncle Terry, who slung drugs on the corner. In the song, A$AP Ferg shares how he promised his mother a better life as soon as he escaped his neighborhood.
Things take a soaring turn on the chorus, as words of inspiration combine with the house music foundation that forms the song. "I can see it in your face/ And I know you wanna fly/ So get off your a- and create your life/ Cuz you're missing opportunities/ I know you're rich in opportunities," Ferg sings on the chorus at first alone, and eventually with Missy Elliott.
Missy, meanwhile, lends a whip smart and whip quick verse to the track that echoes Ferg's theme about taking advantage of opportunities in order to make create a better life. Rapping about how the only way she was bound to make it was by being herself, Listen to "Strive" here.
