In 2011, A$AP Ferg wasn’t the star he is today. But even back then, the A$AP Mob rapper knew he was destined for greatness when he had dinner with two of music’s biggest names: Beyoncé and Jay Z.
At the time, the Trap Lord was actually a design intern at Artful Dodger, a clothing label owned by Jay Z. Around Christmas time, the company had a birthday dinner for Hov, who celebrates life on Dec. 4. It was at this event where Ferg recalls meeting Hov, Bey, and Trey Songz.
“I actually had dinner with Jay,” Ferg tells Rap-Up TV. “This is the first time I’m even saying this shit. I had dinner with him, but I was a small fry, like a fly in the room. And I met [Beyoncé] at the party. It was him, Trey Songz, Beyoncé, and Terrence [J].”
Since his initial encounter with Mr. and Mrs. Carter, Ferg is on a “New Level.” Now, he’s traveling the globe with G-Eazy and gearing up to release his star-studded second album, Always Strive and Prosper, featuring Chris Brown, Missy Elliott, and Future.
