Backpack Lord.

It wasn’t long ago that Harlem rapper A$AP Ferg announced that his proposed mixtape Trap Lord was morphing into a ‘proper’ album, and since then the reveals have been coming thick and fast. The latest news was shared in an interview with MTV, where Ferg detailed some of his collaborators.

We already know that A$AP Mob Kingpin A$AP Rocky and aging ragga don Shabba Ranks will be making an appearance, but it looks as if Ferg isn’t done scratching his 90s itch: “I got some of the best of the best on there. It just got serious and more serious because my features are like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. I got Onyx on the same song as [Cypress Hill’s] B-Real.”

It doesn’t sound like a bad list to us, and it’s a far cry from the usual tired line-up of expected guest spots – Wiz Khalifa and Rick Ross, we’re talking about you.

UPDATE: The rapper has revealed the official artwork (which differs from the previously announced art) via Twitter today, take a look below.

Trap Lord is due for release on August 20. [via AllHipHop]
