With the release of his upcoming album Always Strive and Prosper getting close, A$AP Ferg unleashed another new track from the project. Titled “Hungry Ham,” the song finds Ferg linking up with Skrillex and Crystal Caines for a raucous ode to his Harlem neighborhood. He gave Complex a tour of his block, 143rd Street between Broadway and Amsterdamn Avenues at the Alexander Hamilton playground, back in 2013. He refers to the neighborhood as “Hungry Ham.”
Ferg goes in over Skrillex’s bouncy production, spitting rhymes about growing up in Harlem and getting snitched on by his mother’s friends. Crystal Caines contributes a schoolyard chant, adding to the block-honoring atmosphere of the track.
Ferg has already dropped several singles from his upcoming project, including “New Level” with Future, “Let It Bang” with ScHoolboy Q, and “The World is Mine” with Big Sean. The album is set to drop on April 22.
