A$AP Ferg has confirmed that he is still a member of A$AP Mob.
In a recent interview with Genius, the rapper responded to earlier reports that he was kicked out of the New York-based collective. In September, A$AP Mob co-founders A$AP Illz and A$AP Bari had accused Ferg of stealing ideas from his groupmates, and said that he was no longer part of the crew.
However, later fellow associate A$AP Nast denied the feud, saying that the break-up rumors were “false” and that disputes between crew members were inevitable. He also assured that “everything will be taken care of the right way.”
Ferg has now doubled down on Nast’s statement, adding that he helped make the group what it is today. “I brought millions and millions of dollars and fed families through my voice and my ideas … I bring equity into the brand,” he told Genius. “I mean, that’s like the carpenter. You can’t kick the carpenter out and expect the house to have a roof.”
The rapper then went on to add that the bond between crew members is eternal. “I don’t think there’s no breaking up of the Mob. It’s like, once you’re in the Mob, you can’t get out,” he said. “This is blood in, blood out… The different families, they war with each other and shit, because one mob member leave and then they build they own shit and then it becomes a thing. But you can never get out of the mob.”
