On his Instagram Live session on Thursday, Famous Dex let his fans know that he was no longer a part of Rich Forever Music, the music group and record label founded by Rich the Kid. 

“That’s [Rich the Kid] my homie, I thank him for everything, but I’m not Rich Forever bro”, the rapper stated in the video below. 

It’s possible that Dex had felt overshadowed as over the past year Rich the Kid had been heavily promoting the rise of his label’s most recent signee, Jay Critch, who many believe is the star of Rich Forever’s most recent project, Rich Forever 3.

The last time Dex “left” a music group wasn’t without controversy: as you may recall him feuding with Chicago drill rapper FBG Duck over Dex’s status as a FBG (Fly Boy Gang) member. It’s been speculated that Dex, then known as Black Migo Dex, left FBG to stay away from the gang activity of Chicago’s South Side.

Meanwhile, Dex fans continue to wait for the release of his debut album, Dex Meet Dexter, which he’s been promoting since at least March of this year. It’s unknown whether Rich the Kid will be featured on the album, but if he’s not included it would be the first Dex project without a Rich the Kid feature since his January 2016 mixtape Drippy. Be sure to keep an eye on the social media pages of Famous Dex and Rich the Kid as this story seems to be far from over.
