The entire situation surrounding Famous Dex’s involvement in Rich Forever is incredibly confusing. Back in May, Famous Dex appeared to announce his departure from Rich Forever, a questionable move considering how much he seemed to get along with Rich The Kid. After all, the two shed a tear together after the release Dex Meets Dexter. Maybe the project didn’t reach the heights that Dexter had foreseen because he got back on Instagram live to trash his former boss, calling him selfish a dozen times and once again, claiming to be out Rich Forever.
In the video, Dex insists that he’s only signed to 300 but Rich seems to believe otherwise, commenting during the stream that he’ll release the paperwork showing he’s still under contract. Claiming that RTK does nothing to help him and Jay Critch in their respective careers, Dex said that he’s trying to stop the release Rich Forever 4, citing that nothing has been done to boost him. The artist exclaimed, “Rich The Kid’s selfish ass is trying to sell Rich Forever 4. You’re not trying to get me and Jay Critch shit, you don’t do shit for me and Jay Critch.” Dexter ended his rant by saying he does appreciate everything that Rich has done for him but that he believes he’s a selfish man.
Rich has responded to the claims, implying that this could all be a false alarm. The Rich Forever honcho tweeted in response to DJ Akademiks, stating that the two were together during the stream. He wrote, “He was geekin we right here together now.” Could this all be a ruse to boost sales for Rich Forever 4 or is there something deeper going on?
Rich Forever 4, the upcoming collaborative project between Rich The Kid and his Rich Forever signee Jay Critch, has been delayed. While Rich had originally slated the release for July 13th, the album was nowhere to be found this Friday, and the rapper has since fered an explanation for the setback.
“Rich forever 4 is dropping very soon I’m making it perfect for y’all,” he wrote on Twitter after fans asked for an update. “T]his will Be a legendary album.” In place the album, Rich dropped two singles; the solo cut “Leave Me,” as well as Jay Critch collaboration “Salty.” It is unclear both records are intended to appear on RF4.
Rich Forever 3 was released in June 2017. The song “Did It Again” was later used in the opening an episode FX’s Atlanta. Rich released his debut solo album The World Is Yours in March.
