A$AP Ferg Petit Valley Freestyle

A$AP Ferg taps Bunji Garlin for “Petit Valley” Freestyle

It looks as if the Trap Lord has once again gifted us with something layered and shrouded in mystery… alright, alright… It’s not that serious but it’s just as interesting.

With his latest freestyle ,”Petit Valley,” we find the young Trap Lordian waxing poetic on an unfamiliar melody. Ferg takes his turn at harmonizing over the 2013 Bunji Garlin calypso hit “Carnival Tabanca”. An international superstar in his own right in the realms of soca and calypso, Garlin’s “Carnival Tabanca” lays the proper foundation for Ferg’s tale. Tabanca, West Indian in origin, is defined as, “A painful feeling of unrequited love, typically for a former lover and causing unbalanced or violent behavior.” It’s fitting that in Ferg’s “Petit Valley” – a reference to Ferg’s home away from home, a locale on the North Eastern tip of Trinidad where he stayed during 2014 Carnival – he would choose this song as a base when freestyling of a love lost and longed for an ocean away. He weaves a tale of meeting a downtrodden island girl who despite her misgivings or circumstance still greets the world with a smile. He departs and must continue his career but she longs for him and he for her. Some real romance transcending coasts, oceans, and all that jazz.

With spring  and summer around the corner expect more tunes like “Petit Valley” to be dropping. Its about to be backyard bbq & bashment weather. If ya feelin’ de vibes of “Petit Valley” below be sure to check out the Heatwave mix we posted earlier this month. Zeeeeen!
