ASAP Ferg Celebrates His Hometown on New Song “Harlem Anthem”
Ahead of the release of the Uncle Drew soundtrack, A$AP Ferg shares his offering from the project, "Harlem Anthem."
An ode to his New York neighborhood, the A$AP Mob member makes reference to some of Harlem's most famous residents. "Don't play, just pray, you better have faith/Where Cam and Ma$e play/Pee Wee Kirkland fell in love with the K/I rap like a turban when I'm up in the game/I snap like a serpent, I am all for that change," Ferg raps over frantic drums and horns.
"Welcome to Harlem/Where the legacies are born/Welcome to Harlem/Concrete roses with the thorns/Welcome to Harlem/Come to see where stars are born," Ferg continues to sing in the song's chorus.
Ferg is just one of the many rappers featured on the upcoming Uncle Drew soundtrack, which will also include guest appearances from French Montana, Remy Ma, A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane, 21 Savage, GoldLink, 2 Chainz, Leikeli47, Logic, The Diplomats, Wiz Khalifa, London on da Track and more. The soundtrack is set to release June 15.
The song also arrives after the release of G-Eazy, Yo Gotti and YBN Nahmir's "1942," which is also featured on the project. The three rappers teamed up last month to drop the song's visuals.
