New York rapper A$AP Rocky‘s righthand man, A$AP Ferg, has stepped forward to clarify the brief war of words he had with Atlanta’s Gucci Mane last month over an album title dispute.
According to Ferg, the unexpected clash was simply due to a misunderstanding.
“I think it’s a miscommunication,” Ferg told DJ Whoo Kid when asked if they really have issues or if it is simply a misunderstanding. “I don’t know what Gucci was doing. [I’ve always had Trap Lord,] exactly. If you look at the date at the ‘Work’ video, and you see Trap Lord Productions on the front of that video, all right, then that’s it. Yeah.” (Whoolywood)
Tensions flared when Gucci hopped onto Twitter around mid-February and went at Ferg.
“ASAP whoever calling his mixtape trap lord niggas need to get off my d*ck and let they momma get on it,” Gucci tweeted February 13th. (Gucci Mane’s Twitter)
Rather than fall back, Ferg spoke up for himself and responded to Gucci’s comment.
“TRAP LOORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRD ACROSS MY BELLLYYY!!! N*GGAS IS WASHED UP LOLOL,” Ferg responded.

Coincidentally, A$AP announced his upcoming underground project’s title in January.
Fresh off announcing his deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, A$AP Ferg has revealed that he has a mixtape on the way. He broke the news in an interview with XXL, in which he notes that the project, Trap Lord, is all “about having fun.” He adds that he’s been riding shotgun with A$AP Rocky for a minute and that this release will be “the part where they see what success brings you.” We can expect to hear Trap Lord in late February or early March.
