Fly Friend of SFPL, Rapper A$AP Ferg graced the SFPL TV studio with his presence to talk about his new forthcoming album Always Strive and Prosper, once working for Ben & Jerry’s, his new Trap Lord x Adi-ease collaboration with Adidas, meeting Missy Elliot through Timbaland for the very first time and now having her apart of his new project, working with Madonna and much more.
About being fired from Ben & Jerry’s:
My boy Benson was the manager at the time. I don’t know if the boss knew at the time, but I didn’t sign no application or nothing. I just walked in one day, put a ice cream shirt on and got to work — start to scooping [he laughs]. I was probably giving people extra scoops and they didn’t even know — I started figuring it out later what to do, but I didn’t take no training or nothing. I got paid and everything, but it wasn’t the place for me because I felt like i’m going to use this as a stepping stone — this is only for right now, but I wasn’t really taking the job serious.
Ferg says being fired made him realize that he will never let anyone be in charge of his destiny, nor allow it in anyone else’s hands again. So, he thanked his boss for firing him at the time and for the irony of it, he did an entire photoshoot right inside of the B&J location where he was once fired.
Ferg’s visit was on the same day as A$AP Yams official birthday. Ferg wished Yams a very happy b-day during his interview in honor of his dear friend:
