Detroit rap veteran Bizarre has announced his departure from Shady Records leader Eminem's D12 after coming up with the crew dating back to the 1990's.
While refraining from giving out too many details, Biz said it was his personal decision to part ways with the group.
"I'm not in D12 no more. We just had creative differences and decided to go our separate ways - well I decided to go my separate way. And nah, I'm not in Odd Future. I got my own crew called The Weirdo Movement," he revealed in an interview. "It's a personal decision on my part. I think I've just grown as an artist and it's time for me to branch off on my brand."

Back in 2010, the colorful rapper said fans could expect a follow-up to his group's D12 World 2004 album.
"d12 ablum coming soon!!!," he wrote Thursday (March 4). "in the studio with marshall. royce 59. and d12. be looking for the single soon.....hear some of the bar exam 3. royce new mix tape.. its crazy!!." (Bizarre's Twitter)
A year prior, Bizarre spoke on the status of his now-former rap group.
"Everybody's in D12 and we're doing good," Bizarre told radio personality Jenny Boom Boom. "[A new album] is definitely going to happen. We're working on it right now, Marshall Mathers is coming out first with Relapse...I'm on Eminem's album...I'm recording a couple of songs. Big up to Dr. Dre." (Jenny Boom Boom TV)
Eminem previously discussed his aim for a D12 reunion album.
"Right now, my music would probably be the same [if Proof was still alive," Em explained in an interview. "I think this is what Proof always wanted, was for me to go crazy again. My life would be different because I would still have him. Me and the guys, we got a bond, it's special. It's like, as far as the future of D12, we're gonna be back in the studio soon."
