If you haven't heard, KXNG Crooked of Slaughterhouse announced his departure from the group a few days back via a video he posted to Instagram. He also made sure to make it known that there were no hard feelings. "I got a public service announcement. I'm not longer a part of Slaughterhouse. I'm no longer a part of that collective. It ain't no beef, it's all love. I wish them dudes nothing but success, I mean that." 

The other members of Slaughterhouse have been supportive of Crooked's decision. Joell Ortiz took to Twitter to respond to the news. 

I can respect that @CrookedIntriago Love you my bro. The Yaowas still always one call way. Music or non-music my G. 💯

Royce echoed Ortiz's sentiments. When asked if Slaughterhouse was already disbanded, Royce replied, "No. Not officially, I guess we are now. But, Crooked is my brother, man. He's my brother. I support anything he wants to do. Anything [...] And, it's the same with all the other members. [...] They're family."
