The popular trap duo known as LOUDPVCK decided to post to social media some unsettling news earlier this morning. Since their formation five years ago, LOUDPVCK has become one of the iconic duos in the trap music scene.

Today, Ryan Marks took to the Twitter page to announce that he's leaving the group “to purse other things creatively.”

Read the full message below:

“Dead LOUDPVCK Fans,

It's with a heavy heart today that I announce I'm leaving this project to pursue other things creatively. For the past five years this has been my entire life, and I'm so proud of everything we've accomplished, but as I write you today my passions and musical direction lie elsewhere. I trust in Kenny and our team implicitly to continue delivering amazing music and performances without me. Thank you for all of the memories, I can't describe how much they mean to me. I'll never forget this chapter, but after a lot of thought, I am positive it is time for me to start the next one.”
