Knight discusses his inspiration for the track then breaks down its elements in Ableton Live.
“Sometimes you really just got to make people feel great and that’s why I love this record so much,” Knight says in the video. “This record is Ferg talking about his life in a way where everybody could have fun to it.”
A Brooklyn native, Knight is best known as one of Joey Badass‘ most trusted producers. He is also a rapper and a member of the hip-hop collective Pro Era.
Released in June, “Plain Jane” serves as the lead single from Ferg’s second mixtape Still Striving. The track received an official remix in December featuring Nicki Minaj, which boosted its popularity. The remix became DJcity’s 10th most-downloaded song of December and peaked at No. 26 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in January. It is Ferg’s highest-charting single to date.

A$AP Ferg and his mob take over New York City in the video for his single, “Plain Jane.” The track contains interpolations from Three 6 Mafia’s 1999 song “Slob on My Knob,” and appears on Ferg’s Still Striving mixtape.
“The vision for the video was to bring it back to the streets and to be with the people,” Ferg said in a statement. “We shot the video spontaneously without planning which made everything feel more personal and true to me. I wanted the video to match my lifestyle; I could be riding bikes in Harlem or turning up at a party in Brooklyn.”
