A$AP Ferg is a busy, busy man, what with a new album on the way and an Adidas skateboarding collaboration that just dropped yesterday. Even with all that, he's still taking time out to speak to his fans; "Tatted Angel" sees Ferg spitting over a laidback Hit-Boy beat about girl problems, fake friends, and losing A$AP Yams. The line about Yams is particularly heart-wrenching: "Sometimes I wish Yams was never using/when we toured the UK, I knew I'd lose him/He went through rehab the year before, he'd seen improvement/But the fame and access is what abused/But he in heaven, and I know God'll use him." The below SoundCloud clip fades out mid-verse, implying that it's only a snippet – no word yet on whether it's on the new album.
