Clothing brand Moods of Norway took over Marquee Nightclub for the Official PROJECT Party. Headlining the night was breakout hip hop artist A$AP Ferg.
Shortly after taking over a VIP table on the dance floor with a group of friends, the “Trap Lord” rapper treated revelers to an exuberant performance of hits including “Work” and “Shabba,” complete with champagne showers.
Mid-performance the rapper parted the packed crowd and encouraged everyone from the front to the back of the room to get their hands up as he hopped off stage to join partygoers on the dance floor.
Confetti rained down as the A$AP Mob artist returned to his table to take in the party atmosphere with DJ Politik setting the soundtrack for the night.

There were times I ducked bullets at a basketball game, and then I went to a fashion show. I’ve experienced depression. I’ve experienced triumph. I’ve experienced hate. I’ve experienced love. I learned how to be independent. I made it out of the hood, and now I want go to the top.”
