A$AP Ferg Explains Why He Skipped Out On BET Hip-Hop Awards


A$AP Ferg is one of the hottest new rappers out. Apparently, hotter than he even thought. Ferg won the award for ‘Who New? Rookie of the Year’ at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. Only the Harlem rapper wasn’t there to receive it. The A$AP mob member recently ran into ThisIs50 and revealed that he wasn’t there to accept his award because he had no idea he would wind up hearing his name called. “I didn’t even know I was going to win,” he said, “that’s why we weren’t there. I got caught up doing some other stuff. I wish I was there to accept my first BET Award.”

He added, “I felt like I was one of the greats. It’s just proving it to everyone else now.”

    Ferg over Sweatshirt and Bronson? Both of his singles were very collab-heavy and his verses are consistently weak. The whole A$AP cypher was disappointing to say the least and yet he won. A popularity contest if I ever saw one.

    Recently I was extremely low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills! I’m so glad, I did this! – 0yti
