When A$AP Ferg is not making street anthems such as “Plain Jane” and “New Level”, he’s coming up with ways to maintain his status as one of the leading faces of creating a trendy wave the world can ride on.
A$AP Ferg’s Party for His Redline Collection with Stadium Goods Was This Lit
Ferg told us he wants one song to be the anthem for all BMX riders. Any guesses?
Seeing Ferg’s potential early on, Adidas partnered with the Harlem-bred emcee in 2015, launching a successful Trap Lord collection that spawned a follow-up collection years later. Ferg even inspired the runway outfits for luxury menswear brand Valentino’s Paris Men’s Fashion Week show in 2018. Now, BMX bicycle giants Redline is planning to wheelie their way into hip-hop culture—by partnering with Ferg—to launch a limited edition bike and apparel collection via Stadium Goods.
Stadium Goods was the place to be in order to purchase these limited edition items, exclusively. The gear from the collection that was available to buy was the Race Jersey, Race Pant, A$AP Ferg x RL 275 BMX Bike and Bike lock. As these flashy BMX threads were selling out, Ferg was able to celebrate the launch with a couple of his great friends from the industry as well as his stomping grounds of Harlem, NYC.
A packed house filled the Limited Goods store in Soho as people sipped on Hennessy drinks and danced the night away with Ferg and some of his famous friends such as legendary wardrobe designer Dapper Dan and Houston Rockets forward P.J. Tucker, who were there to show love and support for Ferg’s collaboration.
With the early success and positive feedback from epic collaboration coming in for the Harlem bred rapper and his team, ONE37pm was fortunate to catch up with A$AP Ferg. Here’s what he has to say about this culture shifting partnership.
Who or what inspired you to get involved with the extreme sports market in particularly BMX bikes?
A$AP Ferg: X Sports got me into extreme sports. The legend, Dave Mirra hands down got me involved into BMX bikes and wanting to ride and do tricks.
If you can choose any BMX star, past or present, to do special audio and visual project with, who would it be and why?
Ferg: I would pick 2 BMX stars: Dave Mirra and Nigel Sylvester. They are both fearless. Dave was always reimagining new tricks and landing the impossible. Nigel Sylvester is the best currently. He’s the star of BMX riding now.
Name a song that perfectly would describe the anthem for today's BMX riders and why.
Ferg: "Plain Jane". It makes you feel in sync with the ride, it makes you want to ride harder, and pedal faster. Ride with the mob.
