Harlem’s A$AP Ferg And A$AP Rocky Rap Best Bodega Munchies (video)

March 18, 2016

asap rocky and more in harlemThe A$AP Mob universe, of which Harlem rappers A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg are a part, revolves around several things: Rap, high-end fashion, weed, and pretty-motherfucker shit. But the group’s greater aesthetic solidifies itself when those fly-ass things juxtapose against the crew’s roots—like bodegas. Between Rocky and Ferg, both have signaled their affinity for the beloved corner store in their music videos, proving that bodegas are one of the cornerstones of Harlem and uptown culture.

Therefore, it comes as no surprise that HBO allegedly had the Harlem pair rap as bodega cats for their show Animals (IMDB claims it’ll air as a part of the season 1 episode “Flies”). Besides personifying the one critter you’re most likely to meet upon patronizing a bodega, Rocky and Ferg pay homage to all of the store’s edible staples:

• On potatoes and produce: “Which is on top of a bunch of potatoes/Little fine kitty lay on top of the tomatoes” – Ferg

• On canned fish: “Can of tuna fish went straight to my nasal” – Ferg

• On bread-based products: “Man I hate rats, always eat up the bagels” – Ferg

• On corner-store favorites: “Ask me what my favorite dish is/Either the pussy or the fishes” – Rocky

The greater accomplishment of the track is that it speaks to the greater truth about Harlem’s corner stores: No matter where you end up, you can always grab a solid meal at your local bodega.
