A$AP Ferg may be well on his way to the top but the rapper hasn’t forgotten his roots.
The A$AP Mob member partnered with The Children’s Village and People of Peace to host the 1st annual Ferg Health Fair day in Harlem on August 9. The event provided health supplies, check ups, and fun activities for Harlem youth. Jam Master Jay Foundation and Scratch Academy also got in on the fun by providing one-on-one DJ lessons for the participants.
“Growing up, my Dad always emphasized the vitality of giving back to the community and making sure we never gave up on our dreams. His encouragement motivated me to never settle and he’s the reason I am where I am today, but I’m not the only one. My dad spent his life helping kids in the community stay off the streets and make something of themselves. He may be gone but his legacy lives on through the people of our neighborhood and all the lives he touched.”
He then took to his Instagram to share some photos of the event sharing a bit of his story in the captions
“My father D-Ferg senior died of kidney failure 3 days before my 17th b-day , 3 days before he was suppose to get his transplant . Yesterday I did the 1st annual #fergfair in honor of him. The way it worked was you show up to the event and get schooled on your health status to see a free show with me and some surprise guest. The #fergfair was a success yesterday and I appreciate everybody that came out to support the cause”
