A$AP Ferg Documentary Travels to Liberia to Meet the Students His New Clothing Collection Benefits
The Harlem rapper teamed with streetwear label Uniform to donate uniforms to children with each item sold.
Earlier this year, A$AP Ferg partnered with socially conscious streetwear label Uniform to launch a special capsule collection that donated uniforms to children in Liberia with each item sold. Before the collection's release, the rapper took a trip to Liberia to meet the children his collection would benefit and the Uniform workers who are helping to bring his vision to life. On Friday (Aug. 18), Ferg offered viewers a glimpse into his inspiring Liberia experience, releasing the documentary A$AP Ferg in Liberia: Where Stars Are Born exclusively on TIDAL.
"I became the creative director for Uniform because of what it stood for and the cause, the cause being putting kids in uniforms who can't afford to get uniforms in order to attend school. For kids to actually get uniforms to go to school is amazing and we're able to help out with that," the Harlem native said in the visual.
Throughout the documentary, A$AP Ferg makes stops all over the country starting at a small school in the country where he's introduced to the students before heading to the Uniform factory to meet with the workers.
"For my clothes to create opportunities and to put uniforms on kids, to know that my hand and drawing or design and my ideas can come across the world and help is just amazing," he continued he says before leading a sing-along to his hit "New Level". Viewers are introduced to some of the workers who begin to share their stories like Lydia Wallace, who was forced to become the sole breadwinner for her family after her husband diagnosed with glaucoma.
