Rappers DAY26 have called it quits.
The four-piece, formed by Sean 'Diddy' Combs during his hit U.S. TV show Making the Band 4 in 2007, released three studio albums.
Musicians Robert Curry, Brian Andrews, Willie Taylor and Michael 'Butta' MCCluney announced the news collectively on Monday (16Jul12), thanking fans and Combs for their continued support.
A statement from the group reads: "It is with great sadness and deep pain that we regret to inform you that... Day26 have decided to take a break from the group and focus on their own individual projects. On behalf of all the members... we would like to thank all of the... fans, dj's (sic) across the world, promoters, radio programmers... and all Day26 supporters in general, for your unending support throughout these years.
"We would also like to acknowledge that this journey would have not been made possible without the vision and mastermind of Sean 'Diddy' Combs and of course MTV Networks for making a group of unknown men the stars that they are today.
"We simply thank you from the bottom of our hearts and really want you to know that the journey does not end here. We continue to wish each other the very best and continued success in all of our individual endeavors, and all we ask of you is to please give each member a chance and the opportunity to shine in whatever they do."
