A$AP Ferg’s Trap Lord drops next Tuesday. It’s available to stream right now, though, and one of it’s standout tracks “Lord,” featuring Bone Thugs N Harmony, already has people talking. Crystal Caines, a female producer from Harlem who grew up around the corner from Ferg, is the production mastermind behind its spooky, smoky sonics.

Female producers in the game are a rarity. Last month, Toronto’s WondaGurl got her first major placement on Jay Z‘s Magna Carta Holy Grail with the beat she made for the song “Crown,” opening the door for a raft of other young, female up-and-coming producers—Crystal Caines included. Before Trap Lord officially drops on tuesday, we spoke with Crystal about working with Ferg, finding inspiration in Missy Elliott, and what we can expect from her in the future.
