To promote the release of his second mix tape, Still Striving, rapper A$AP Ferg has released a star-studded remix of his single “East Coast.” The remix features appearances from a cavalcade of new and established talents, including Snoop Dogg, Dave East, Busta Rhymes, French Montana, Rick Ross and Ferg’s A$AP Mob cohort A$AP Rocky. The track is a hard-hitting posse cut that bodes well for the overall quality of Still Striving.
Ferg has also released a very creatively directed music video for the song. The problem with filming clips for cuts like “East Coast Remix” is that it’s a real logistical challenge to gather a large group of international superstars together in one location at the same time. Ferg, who directed the clip, addressed this problem by having various performers spit their verses in a variety of colorful locations. This tactic worked pretty well and you can check it out in the video above.
Still Striving is due out Aug. 18.
