A$AP Ferg Brings Movin’ On To A ‘New Level’

“Aww Yeah.”

A$AP Ferg lit up the IM Fields stage quite literally on a windy Friday evening. The New York City rapper came from the Big Apple to Penn State to perform in front of the Movin’ On 2019 crowd.

“This shit finna be so fucking lit today. I swear to god,” Ferg said after opening with his latest single “Redlight.” “We gonna turn the fuck up.”

And they did.

He followed suit with songs like “Nandos,” “Coach Cartier,” and “Mad Men” from his 2017 album “Still Striving.” Like Bryce Vine, it was hard to hear Ferg for the first few songs, but adjustments were made to the sound system after he shouted, “Penn State, let’s crank it the fuck up.”

Ferg shifted gears by covering songs like Sheck Wes’ “Mo Bamba” and BlueFace’s “Bust Down Thotiana.” He also paid tribute to the late XXXTentacion’s “Take a Step Back.”

The crowd of students danced and jumped around like crazy during these three songs and pretty much knocked each other over.

Finally, A$AP Ferg ended on a high note by closing with two crowd favorites: his 2015 single “New Level” and most popular song “Plain Jane.”

A$AP Ferg knew how to entertain the audience and keep the energy level up. Even if the weather hadn’t held out, nothing could’ve put a damper on Ferg’s electric performance.
