Despite most recent claims, A$AP Nast says Ferg is still down with the crew. We previously reported that A$AP Illz revealed that Ferg was dropped from the Mob. "Ferg ain't ASAP NO MORE sorry guys," wrote Illz on his Instagram Stories. "That n***a burnt out, songs dumb trash mr anthem can't get right." ASAP Nast took to Twitter to address the claims. He mentions that family's have "disputes," and that Ferg is still apart of the collective.
He says, "The Trap Lord was not will not be kicked of A$AP..False News.." Hopefully the crew can work out their differences. ASAP Mob co-founder ASAP Illz had some choice words about fellow member ASAP Ferg on Tuesday. Claiming Ferg was no longer a part of the crew, the rapper wrote: "Sorry guys. That n**** burnt out, songs dumb trash. Mr. Anthem can't get right." While the news shocked ASAP Mob fans, crew member ASAP Nast has backtracked on Illz's comments, denying Ferg was officially let go.
Instead, he's shared a clip of him listening to Meek Mill's 2016 Dreams Worth More Than Money track "Cold Hearted." The snippet played over Diddy's verse which addresses disloyal friends, seemingly making a dig at Illz's comments. See Nast's defense of Ferg above. Meek Mill is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group. Despite what you may have heard, ASAP Ferg has not been kicked out of the ASAP Mob collective. Earlier this week, co-founder ASAP Illz said Ferg was "no longer part" of the collective, adding in his opinion that Ferg's recent output included songs that were—again, in his opinion—"dumb trash." ASAP Bari—who pleaded guilty to a count of sexual assault in London last year—seemed to back up this claim, though some subsequent messages from Nast tell a different story. As Nast explained late Tuesday, "disputes" are common in families "all over the world." Ferg, however, "was not and will not" be kicked out of ASAP Mob. Any such claim, Nast added, is simply false. Adding further weight behind Nast's explanation is the fact that the official ASAP Mob Twitter account retweeted his messages: Complex has reached out to Ferg's representatives and management team for additional comment. Following Nast's apparent confirmation that all was ultimately well with regards to Ferg's ASAP Mob status, many fans and fellow artists—including Juicy J—celebrated the news: Late last month, Ferg linked up with Lil Wayne and Jay Gwuapo for "No Ceilings." Ferg, whose last solo full-length was the 2017 gold-certified Still Striving tape, was spotted across a number of social media updates back in July with Marilyn Manson. The two confirmed they were in the studio, though it's not yet clear what, exactly, they were cooking up.
