Hear A$AP Ferg's Advice to Young Rappers

Fuse's Esteban Serrano sat down with A$AP Ferg at Coachella this weekend to discuss the future and things got a little philosophical. 

"I feel like rappers shouldn't be sensitive because it's not a sensitive sport," Ferg said. "It's like boxing, you can't go in there with flower boxers on and think you're about to win s**t. This is a competetive sport. If you feel a certain way, say something about it and I hope you say it in your lyrics."

He's had that no non-sense, honest attitude since day one. 

"I was making music for my own dreams… I wasn't looking for radio plays. "Work" went viral. I was out here playing Pitchfork and all the festivals before it got on radio. People chose that. I just wanted to make theme music to my life. This new album is going to be more eclectic, it's going to be the growth of Ferg…. It's going to be all my characters that you love."

The future is looking bright for the rapper, who's slated to go on tour with M.I.A later this year.

"I think that's going to be crazy. I know it's going to be a different crowd but I know it's going to be a turnt up crowd. I know there's going to be hella fine hipster chicks. I don't have a problem with adding more girls to the roster as far as my fans are concerned."
