This event is ALL AGES

A$AP Ferg emerged on the music scene in 2012 as one of the leading members of the Harlem, NY collective, A$AP Mob. He spent 2012 fortifying the groundwork to his ascent to "Trap Lord" by appearing on various tracks on A$AP Rocky's major label album debut, LONG.LIVE.A$AP and followed up by showcasing his talents for sold-out audiences while on tour with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna and Drake. In 2013, A$AP Ferg released his debut project Trap Lord (A$AP Worldwide/Polo Grounds Music/RCA), which entered at #9 on Billboard's Top 200 chart, #2 on the overall Rap Albums chart, #4 on the overall R&B Albums chart and #5 on the Top Digital Albums chart and earned Ferg the "Who New? Rookie of the Year" BET Hip Hop Award. Trap Lord included the breakout hits "Work REMIX" featuring A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Trinidad James & ScHoolBoy Q, and "Shabba," also featuring A$AP Rocky.

Since the release of Trap Lord, Ferg has delivered electrifying performances at the 2013 BET Awards, Skrillex's New Year's Eve at Madison Square Garden, Pitchfork Music Festival, goHARD Spring Festival, Air + Style Festival and BUKU Festival among others. Ferg has also headlined his Turnt x Burnt tour and rocked stages while on tour with Juicy J and most recently G-Eazy on the "When It's Dark Out" tour. In addition to his music, A$AP Ferg has established himself as an innovator in art and fashion with his recent collaboration with Adidas footwear and apparel skateboarding collection and partnering with LA denim brand, AGOLDE.

A$AP Ferg will release his sophomore album Always Strive and Prosper via A$AP Worldwide/Polo Grounds Music/RCA on April 22nd.

Tory Lanez
Following the release of his breakout single "Say It"—peaking at #1 on Rhythmic and Urban Radio as well as #23 on the Hot 100—rising singer, songwriter, rapper and producer Tory Lanez is fresh from a massive week at SXSW, with Hot New Hip Hop calling him "one of the highlights of the entire SXSW festival" and Billboard naming him an Artist To Watch.

Lanez capped off a banner 2015 with the release of two mixtapes, Chixtape III and The New Toronto. 2015 also saw collaborations with Chris Brown, Meek Mill and more and the release of his critically-acclaimed Cruel Intentions EP, a collaboration with tastemaking L.A. label WEDIDIT featuring production from RL Grime, Baauer and Shlohmo. Signed to multiplatinum producer Benny Blanco's Interscope Records imprint Mad Love, Lanez's debut album is set for release this year.
