A$AP Ferg is one of the many New York City artists helping his hometown community through the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Yesterday, Ferg took to social media to post about numerous ways to help during the time of crisis, including his donation of food to the first response workers at Harlem Hospital Center. Continuing with that theme, the Trap Lord showcased the empty neighborhoods throughout the city’s boroughs in his latest visual for late-January’s “Value” single.

Ferg makes the most of the limitations of social distancing and quarantines, filming throughout his apartment, using archival footage of a younger him freestyling, and capturing the surreal outside world devoid of people. His signature high-energy flow is the perfect compliment to platinum producer Razjah’s instrumental (who throws in some Three 6 Mafia ad-libs in the background for good measure). Toward the midway point, a spoken word interlude hits home centered around the internet’s effect on the quarantine and the current state of fear in America.

Last year the A$AP Mob member released his Floor Seats EP and episodes of his Sewer Tapes YouTube series. Watch “Value” above and stream the single below.

In more music updates, Amoeba Music has launched a new GoFundMe campaign to save and maintain record stores.
