Ferg showed off a new grill honoring a few of his late friends.

The Harlem native attended Ice Cold: An Exhibition of Hip-Hop Jewelry at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City last week. He was sporting a piece designed by Gabby Elan Jewelry, featuring the faces of Takeoff, Virgil Abloh, ASAP Yams, and more.

In an impromptu interview with Julia Hackman Chafé of Jewels With Jules, Ferg broke down his whole fit, including the grill.

"A little bit of Gabby on the teeth," he said.

Ferg announced the release of his latest song "MDMX" on Monday.

It also arrived with a music video directed by Ferg.

After years of downplaying talk of his departure from the ASAP Mob, Ferg appears to have dropped ASAP from his moniker. There were conflicting reports in 2020 when ASAP Illz and ASAP Bari said Ferg was no longer in the crew, while ASAP Nast pushed back on the claim.

Ferg addressed the matter on "Big ASAP," questioning how they could "kick a leader of ASAP out." He revisited the topic again on Genius.

"That could go without being said. You can't kick me out of something I helped build," he explained. "I brought millions and millions of dollars and fed families through my voice and my ideas … I bring equity into the brand. I mean, that’s like the carpenter. You can't kick the carpenter out and expect for the house to have a roof."
