Growing up in a part of Harlem, New York known as “Hungry Ham (Hamilton Heights),” A$AP Ferg‘s late father, Darold Ferguson, owned a Harlem boutique and printed t-shirts and designed logos for record labels; including Diddy’s record label Bad Boy Entertainment. A$AP Ferg’s father, Darold Ferguson designed the Bad Boy Records logo in 1993. Diddy and A$AP Ferg have a close relationship and Diddy once gifted A$AP Ferg a Bad Boy Records chain.
A$AP Ferg thinks that he is the baby featured on his father’s Bad Boy Entertainment logo.
A$AP Ferg explained in an instagram post
“What a lot of people don’t know is that my father created the Bad Boy logo. Diddy and my pops was 2 kids running round Harlem with a dollar and a Dream. I used to see this logo in my fathers screen printing shop as a kid and always thought I was the baby in the logo I mean who else would it be? My first tour Puff congratulated me on my accomplishments and commended me for making it this far!!! We talked on a the phone for bout a hour before my set. Long story short it was only right I got the chain!! Gave it to me straight off his neck!!! Always love!!! Bad boy/Asap family #R.I.P.D-Ferg”
