Capsule Headliner Asap Ferg Drops His Lastest Offering “Still Striving”.
The “Mixtape” as he refers to it, is more like a star studded original playlist exploring different states of mind, rather than carrying one central theme. Ferg brings his signature flow and energy to the project reminding us why he is one of the hardest touring artist in the game. Stream the Tape on every major platform so you are ready when the Trap Lord graces the Capsule stage.
Peep the tracklist below:
Undoubtedly the most anticipated internet kid to drop since he first popped up the radar as part of The Cabin. Patrickxxlee’s Dairy Of Arsonist fans the flames of his growing popularity on soundcloud and the South African’s indy scene as a whole.
