Bizarre Leaves D12, Starts His Own “Weirdo Movement”

It looks like Eminem’s Dirty Dozen is yet again without a founding member.

Rapper Bizarre told HipHopDX in a recent interview that he is no longer a member of the platinum-selling group D12. Though not as lyrically dexterous as Slim Shady and the rest of the group, Bizarre stood out with his penchant for penning attention-grabbing and shocking rhymes.

“Yeah, I’m not in D12 no more,” he shared. “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,” he clarified. “I got my own crew called The Weirdo Movement.”

Bizarre was asked if the recent singing of Slaughterhouse at Shady had an effect on D12 and his decision to leave. “I don’t think it had no real effect,” he explained. “Slaughterhouse is doing they thing–shout out to them. 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.”

Shady made sure he gave his crew their due when he got on and D12’s Devil’s Night (2001) and D12 World (2004). The group experienced success, but the group’s future has been in question since the loss of founding member and Eminem’s childhood friend, Proof, in early 2006.

Bizarre is prepping the release of his free album, This Guy’s a Weirdo, on March 30, which will feature Royce Da 5”9’ and his “Weirdo Movement” sound. He also hopes to get in the studio with Nicki Minaj, who he has been stalking on Twitter and recently got a tattoo of on his arm. —Nicholas Sella @NickSella
