Today, Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs and A$AP Ferg released new material titled "Old English." While the collaboration may strike listeners as peculiar, it definitely comes together rather well. As usual Thugger's energy shines on the record, combined with Ferg's style and Gibbs' delivery as all three artists showcase their flows over the Salva & Nick Hook-produced banger. This song will serve as the first single from the forthcoming Mass Appeal compilation album, due out September 2. Listen below.

A$AP Ferg gets his dancehall on with his latest freestyle over Bunji Garlin’s island banger “Carnival Tabanca” and renames it “Petit Valley”. After seeing success from his dancehall inspired track "Shabba," it looks like FERG has decided to embrace this sound once again. Ferg recently spent time in Petit Valley, in his home country of Trinidad, which likely explains the influence of the track. Seeing as we finally have had some nice weather the past few days, take in A$AP FERG's island jam and embrace the warmth while it's still here.
