A$ AP Ferg and Pro Era’s Kirk Knight have teamed up on the bruising new song, “Setup.” The song was released ahead of A$ AP Mob’s annual Yams Day celebration on January 18th at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.
The Knight-produced track features a mix of snaking synths, ominous horns, chaotic percussion and finds Ferg stepping up first to unleash a bombastic verse packed with debauched punchlines. Knight matches Ferg’s energy and bravado – “Making the money flip, so many times/ I’m thinking that I deserve medals” – with a quick set of bars with alternating cadences.
Knight and other members of the Pro Era crew will join A$ AP Mob at MSG to honor the late producer A$ AP Yams, who died in 2015 of an accidental overdose. The packed Yams Day lineup also includes A$ AP Rocky, Joey Badass, Danny Brown, Lil Uzi Vert, the Flatbush Zombies, Cam’ron, T-Pain and a special appearance from Tyler, the Creator.
