CRITIC REVIEWS

80
AllMusic

Juggling Masonic symbols, Golden Age hip-hop cassettes, and loaded glocks with ease, the rapper is an excellent tour guide through this warped landscape of thrills and chills

75
The Line of Best Fit

Does Ferg both overcome and uphold the moniker of A$AP in this, his first major solo effort: yes.

75
Pitchfork

Though Trap Lord's vision is refracted through split personalities-- for better or for worse-- A$AP Ferg still sounds like a star in the making.

70
Spin

There's nothing on Trap Lord to suggest Ferg will follow A$AP Rocky onto the pop charts, but it's a rewardingly dark and grounded listen.

70
FACT Magazine

The tight weaving of the dreamy A$AP productions with Ferg’s rebel stance sees Trap Lord teeter somewhere between bullish and elegant, and when it’s well executed it’s a delight.

70
HipHopDX

Overall, A$AP Ferg’s Trap Lord, is a solid, if an sometimes-uninspired effort. It occupies that zone between the mindless “turn up” music and projects that have gotten a praise for being entertaining enough to at least partially negate a desire for more depth.

70
Consequence of Sound

Originally planned as a mixtape, there’s an unfinished feeling to Trap Lord, which in turn lends a lot of promise to the eventual follow-up.

60
Tiny Mix Tapes

It’s a fun ride, to be sure, but once the high wears off and all that’s left is the darkness, you can catch a faint glimpse of oblivion.

complexity whatsoever. Yet, the craft lyrics spit by Ferg enables an amusing listening experience to occur. To add, the dense, boastful production magnifies the accuracy of Ferg’s claim of being the trap lord.

Best tracks: “Let It Go;” “Dump Dump” YES!; “Work (Remix);” “Didn’t Wanna Do That”
Worst tracks: “4:02” why would you want to know what your dick tastes like?
