Published Sep 12, 2012Alabama rap duo G-Side broke through last year with two excellent albums, The One... Cohesive and iSLAND. While their next step likely would have pushed them further into mainstream consciousness, they've instead decided to part ways.
Speaking with Spin, the group's ST 2 Lettaz revealed that he'll no longer be collaborating with Yung Clova on the project.
"It just felt like it was time," he said. "It was time to go elsewhere creatively. We've been doing records since 2004. You just grow up and grow out and that's kind of the case."
Still, the split was entirely amicable, and ST insists there are no hard feelings. "I wish there was something juicy, but it's like, there's no big drama behind it, man. There was no fall-out, no fight, you know what I mean?"
ST adds that he felt the group's ideas had gotten stale, and that their "whole hype had died down."
G-Side's next album was going to be called G...Growth & Development. That record's still coming out via Slow Motion Soundz, but it will now be a ST 2 Lettaz solo release. It's expected to drop later this year or early 2013.
