We’re surprised that it took this long, but an artist has finally unleashed a remix of Drake’s “Trophies.” This one — there will certainly be more — comes courtesy of A$AP Ferg.

The Harlem rapper adopts Drizzy’s flow over the Hit-Boy production. Topic wise, Fergenstein takes us to a personal place by speaking candidly on his father’s passing and his uncle being incarcerated. He dedicated the entire second verse to his mother.

There’s noticeably less energy on Ferg’s version of the horn-driven track. And that’s surprising since he’s brought us tracks like “Work” and “Shabba.”

In any case, A$AP Ferg will have a chance to redeem himself this year when he and A$AP Mob deliver their long-awaited album. Until then, you can hear him spit on “DTM Awards 14” below. Give us your thoughts in the comments.
