New York rapper A$AP Ferg has started the countdown. This week, the Harlem hip-hop artist announced his A$AP Mob crew have a new album, The Cozy Tape, in the works.

Barring any setbacks, Ferg promised his group’s follow-up to 2012’s Lords Never Worry mixtape is coming.

“Yeah the album is dropping soon, we actually shot the album cover already and everything is getting edited and mixed up and everything. I don’t know exactly when it’s dropping, I don’t have a date, I’m the wrong person to ask… I presume it’s coming out soon ‘cos we shot the cover. This album is gonna be called… ‘The Cozy Tape'” (Triple J)

Ferg also revealed his intent to start piecing together a new solo effort.

“I’m working on a new album, that’s actually what I’m gonna be doing when I leave here, I’m going to LA. So, I got two more days in Australia and then I leave to LA and work on my album, I’ll be out there for about two weeks.” (Triple J)

Last month, A$AP Mob leader A$AP Rocky clocked in work on a new album with help from rocker Lenny Kravitz.

At last spring’s Coachella music festival, Rocky performed alongside rap star Kanye West.

The pair joined up to perform ‘Father Stretch My Hands Pt 1’ from West’s recent ‘The Life Of Pablo’ album. According to reports, the pair wanted to play one more track but the sound was cut as Rocky had already overrun his allotted time slot. (NME)
