A$AP Ferg “New Level” ft. Future
The two trap lords battle Honorable C.N.O.T.E's monstrous production.
It’d be easy to write off “New Level” as an example of the average artist capitalizing on Future’s wave by securing a feature from the reigning king of Atlanta. However, A$AP Ferg isn’t your average artist. The Harlem native’s off-kilter delivery—ad-libs included—are presumably nearly as vexing to the hip hop purist as Future’s Auto-Tuned vocal improvisations, so it’s hard not to smirk while imagining their face listening to the two emcee’s latest turn-up anthem.
Produced by Honorable C.N.O.T.E, the track creeps in with a haunting choir and string arrangement fit for some Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets-level shit to go down, until the staple 808s burst through the mist, clearing the way for A$AP Ferg and Future to interchange incantations of the hook. Halfway through Future’s verse, it’s apparent these two trap lords were destined to meet, perhaps to slay C.N.O.T.E’s fire-breathing beat.
Future Ferg on the way?
