D12 hasn’t put out an album since 2004. But one of its longtime members, Bizarre, announced recently that he is officially no longer part of the group. After three solo albums–none of which were released through Eminem’s Shady Records–the Detroit rapper told Hip Hop DX, “We just had creative differences and decided to go our separate ways – well I decided to go my separate way.” He said, “I got my own crew called The Weirdo Movement.” Bizarre marks the second departure of a founding member from the Dirty Dozen, the first being Proof, who was shot and killed at the CCC Club in April 2006.
No word yet on what or when we can expect to hear something from The Weirdo Movement, but Bizarre’s split from D12 seems to have been as amicable as it can get. In the interview, he gave a shout out to Shady-signed supergroup Slaughterhouse, adding, “Me and my man actually just did some production work on their album… and I can’t wait to hear this album they about to put out.” [XXL]
