A$AP Ferg brought it to The Orange Peel on Friday May 20th.
The show was sold out! The Ashevillager even had a fan message us for tickets just hours before the show. We know those tix were in high demand. The show started up with a hot performance from MadeinTyo. He got the crowd jumpin and raising the cellies with “I Want.” His stage presence was “right on!” I spoke with a friend of his who grew up in the same school in Tokyo with the young hip hop artist. He said he was happy to see him make it so big openin g for A$AP. A$AP Ferg’s crew proceeded him with “Shaba.” A$AP performed one classic mix after another. The fans quieted when he came up in respect and anticipation. He exudes Harlem; his lyrics, beats and style are put together and you know he has East Coast Rap in his blood. He was sporting the white graffiti shirt like the old 80’s gear but his music was new and old. His performance seemed raw and real to me. It comes from the heart. His new album “Always Strive and Prosper” is absolute poetry. You can check him out on facebook or get his new music here:
