What’s ASAP Ferg’s net worth?
ASAP Ferg is an American hip-hop artist with a $6 million net worth. ASAP Ferg has put out music both as a solo artist and as a member of the A$AP Mob.

Ferg also started the brand Traplord, which is about street fashion and lifestyle. He has worked as an ambassador for brands like Adidas and Tiffany’s.
ASAP Ferg’s real name is Darold Durard Brown Ferguson Jr., and he was born in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood on October 20, 1988. His parents were Trinidadian immigrants. His father, Darold Sr., ran a local shop where he printed logos and shirts for musicians like Heavy D, Bell Biv DeVoe, and Teddy Riley. As a teenager, Ferg got ideas from his father to start his own clothing and jewelry lines. In 2005, he started a business called Devoni Clothing, where he made and sold expensive belts.
Career Beginnings in Music
Ferg started making music in the late 2000s. By 2009, he had developed a powerful trap style of hip hop. He joined the hip hop group A$AP Mob with his high school friend ASAP Rocky. Both of their stage names come from the group’s name.
“Trap Lord” was his first single.
In 2012, Ferg’s first single, “Work,” which was first released on the A$AP Mob mixtape “Lords Never Worry,” made him famous. Soon, more than two million people watched the music video for the song online, which put Ferg on the map. He then made a deal with RCA Records and Polo Grounds to make a record. Ferg finally put out his first studio album in August 2013. It was called “Trap Lord.” The album’s first week on the Billboard 200 chart put it at number nine. Artists like French Montana, Waka Flocka Flame, B-Real, and ASAP Rocky all made guest appearances. Three singles helped promote “Trap Lord”: “Hood Pope,” “Shabba,” and the remix of Ferg’s first single, “Work.”
