Replacing band members (2014)
In November of 2014, there had been much controversy that a former member, Prodigy, had been welcomed back into the group. Reasons behind this were gravitated to another member, Roc Royal, for his occasional mishaps he engaged in while not working with the group. Many assumed things such as continuous drug usage and or being involved with drugs had been thought of as the reason for this. While some fans believed him being out of the group was true, some did not. Many wanted confirmation that he was no longer a member of Mindless Behavior. In December of 2015, there ideas were confirmed through social media when the groups Instagram account proved August was no longer in the group, removing his name from the roster of members in the account's description. With this, fan's were outraged, claiming that he'd brought so many fans from being in the group, that the group wouldn't last much longer. Many fans were outraged at the idea of an old member coming back into the group after being gone for a year, then removing another member by surprise. Fans also claim that the artist was removed from the group without warning, receiving a text from their manager, telling him he was no longer in Mindless Behavior. This has not yet been confirmed.
