On Wednesday, E-Sens took to Twitter to explain his decision to split from I.K. Crew, in a cryptic message that implied that raised the issue of whether the move was artistically motivated.

"I'm leaving I.K as of today," the rapper wrote.

"I made this important decision not that there's anything to cause my face to blush, but because there are things coming up in the future. I've talked to Simon D and will have to [discuss my decision] with the other crewmembers. I hope that everyone's future is full of blessings and luck. Peace."

E-Sens added that he hope to live a life of quiet dignity now that he as distanced himself from his affiliations within the music industry.

"I'm an inexperienced and emotional person, as well as a person who pretended to be smart, but now I just want to quietly make music and happily live my life," he wrote.

"I plan on not doing anything embarrassing. To all my friends, colleagues, and fans, I wish you luck."

On July 20, the rapper shocked Supreme Team fans when he posted a tweet saying that was breaking up the group he started with Simon D four years ago, in a move that appears to be motivated by his contract with record label Amoeba Culture expiring.

"I was told of my contract ending today," E-Sens wrote on his Twitter account. "I'm going to promote as a solo artist."

Simon D, who remains on the Amoeba Culture artist roster offered an explanation for the demise of Supreme Team on his own Twitter account.

"It was Sens's only road to be happy, and I respect that decision," Simon wrote.

"It's just that we're not the same team anymore, but our relationship of over 10 years has definitely not changed. Since we're now solo artists, we'll now be able to show what we do best...I'm thankful and apologize to those who loved the team and were patiently waiting for our album."

A spokesperson for Amoeba Culture told the publication MyDaily that E-Sens's departure from Supreme Team had more to do with the record label than the band.

"Because there were differences in music direction with E-Sens [and Amoeba Culture], we decided to [part ways]," the spokesperson said.

"The other member Simon D plans to continue promoting with Amoeba Culture."

The Amoeba Culture rep questioned whether Supreme Team was ever even really a band.

"To be honest, Supreme Team started out as a project so it doesn't seem proper to call it a disbandment," the spokesperson said.
