IFWT_A$AP_Ferg_Nast

“You gotta wait for greatness,” says A$AP Nast about the delay of the L.O.R.D. album. “It’s coming soon. We just basically wanted to give people an official album and give people real work. So what we did was take our time with this album really give people bangers, and really give the fans what they deserve from us. That’s the reason why the dates have been pushed back.” The Harlem resident and his Mob partner, A$AP Ferg talks to HipHopDX about the golden era, how they are attempting to make what they do more about the music, the fans, and the craft than the jewels and the look of it all.
We get it, sometimes you want your work to be looked over – PERFECTED FOR THE PUBLIC! I’m ready though, lol! Hit the jump for more on what’s to come from the MOB!

(Photos) Did You Know? Lil Fizz Is NOT Actually Jhene Aiko’s Cousin!

Jhene x Lil Fizz

Back when B2K were on fire in the early 00’s, the guys attempted to use their fame to help launch the careers of singers close to them, including Omarion’s younger brother O’Ryan and Lil Fizz’s “cousin” Jhene Aiko. Jhene appeared alongside Fizz in B2K’s video for “Why I Love You,” wearing matching Lakers gear with her cuzzo and actually looking very much like him. She was introduced as Fizz’s cousin and put out some music back then, but nothing really popped off. Eventually, she took time off to finish school and have a baby (with O’Ryan actually, LOL), and is making plenty of noise now as a Def Jam artist with a completely new sound. But naturally, Fizz and B2K still get brought up. Turns out, they actually weren’t related at all!
