There is a shake up in the group Mindless Behavior.

Lead singer Prodigy, whose real name is Craig Crippen Jr. is rumored to have left the group. His mother allegedly posted the news on Instagram that he had officially left the group in September.

This news doesn’t come as a surprise to many in the industry, because there have been rumors that Prodigy was going solo since the summer.

Prodigy’s friend Shayla said on Instagram that he left because of his differences with management. But she later said it was because of ‘emotional health issues.’

  3. Tatianna says:

I HOPE MB reads this mindless behavior its sad to say this but is nothing without prodigy idc what anybody else thinks OKAY HE CAN BE JAMIEE FOXX<OR ROBIN THICKE FOR WHAT I CARE NO ONE REPLACES PRODIGY OKAY DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME and prodigys not in the goup sadly i love you mb but its not "mb" with out "MB" you get what im sayying srry i refuse to listen to mb intill prod is back

  4. AjTheBreeze says:

    without prodigy mb is nothing…..trying to replace him won’t be the same…you won’t get the same reaction from the fans cause all they’re gonna be worried about is “who is this nigga?” …..soooo until then either mb gets back together otherwise someone’s gonna start losing both fans and money….

  5. Quinnyia says:

    Dont,get me wrong I love jacob latimore but t wont be mindless behavior with out prod,this group changed peoples lifes .you can juat pick up and leave that,stupid .dont quit prod please,dont

  6. MaylasiaMindless . says:

    A girl just killed herself because prod left omg…u never really know much people love u prod..u will be missed forever….at least we have Jacob latimore

    • Kelvyona says:

      You know what to say i cried when i found out and ray ray my favorie so jacob need to get on some where and i dont care if he reading this and get mad i will say this to his face

  7. Kelvyona says:

    Why did prodigy leave even though he wasnt my favorite but i still cared for him and if jacob latimore becomes the lead singer im never listening to MB again im still gone love MB but not Jacob latimore no matter what prodigy is still apart of MB. And thats a fact
    #Team ray ray princeton roc royal and PRODIGY

    • MisfitX2 says:

      Jacob latimore he is good but I dont see him in Mindless Behavior.I would be a better choice then him there sayin he’s the best choice that’s what they think cus he has experience.The Music will be totally different but I believe that’s a rumor

  8. Ameenah says:

    I Think its horrible that Prodigy left because he was the lead singer and he wasn’t just a person in the band he was part of mb’s family he was part of our family because we love him and he will be missed trust me i loved mindless behavior and i always will but when i found out the news i was torn completely torn everywhere but im not gonna say im not gonna listen to their music and crap like that im just gonna say that i won’t be able to get with the music with some other dude up there so as i say PROD will be missed and i will always call him prod end of discussion.

  9. Mikayla says:

    Please tell me this is a rumour. Prodigy cannot leave! I’ve been a hardcore mindless fan since 2010 and if prodigy leaves the band won’t be the same at all! No offense to Jacob latimore but he can’t take prods place, he just can’t. Without prodigy mindless behavior won’t be mindless behavior anymore. Heck without ANY of they boys it want be mindless behavior. But if prod does leave then I wish him all the best for his future. That’s all we can do I guess. We can complain but it not do anything; it’s his choice after all.
    But you know what? I don’t hundred percent believe he’s leaving. I want to hear or see PRODIGY say that he’s leaving. I don’t want to see his mom say it and not his friend. When prod says he leaving, then I’ll believe it for sure.

    • mimi says:

  32. Karen says:

    I feel bad for you fans, but many MB fans didn’t treat Prodigy right when he was with the group. You guys were so caught up in the cute light skin mixed race guys with the big hair and braids that you didn’t show Prodigy any love. Prodigy always talked the most about doing things to please the fans, yet you guys treated him horribly and you dissed him as the lead singer by only focusing on the other three. Why, because he wasn’t light skin or you didn’t think his hair was long enough, or was it because you thought he wasn’t as cute as the other members. You fans have to take some responsibility for the way you treated Prodigy. Prodigy sang all the songs for the group and he worked and danced his butt off, the other members were back up singers, but you guys never showed any appreciation for Prodigy and you didn’t show him any love, so now he’s gone. Also, Princeton used to prance around the stage upstaging Prodigy at practically every event, dissing Prodigy as if he was the main attraction and one who was the lead singer calling the shots. He barely let Prodigy speak during MB interviews. Prodigy just kept getting quieter and quieter over the years and would barely say anything if any of you fans had bothered to notice, you would have even noticed the look on Prodigy’s face when Princeton hogged the mike, but all you guys saw was Princeton, Princeton, Ray Ray, Roc etc. Prodigy is sensitive, and you MB fans never cared how sensitive he was. You just ignored him or said things that were not so flattering, but Prodigy never complained, he would just say, he was “chill” If you guys had bothered to take the time to notice that Prodigy used to talk a lot when the group first started out, he would be the one talking at a good many of the interviews, and Princeton just took over the mike and tried to take over the stage. Sad, but you MB fans have no one to blame but yourselves. You never appreciated Prodigy and even the members of the MB group theirself, never have Prodigy the respect he deserved. But mainly you fans made Prodigy like all his work and effort after all those years was for fans who didn’t seem to care or take notice of the great lengths Prodigy would go through to please the MB fans. So now you have no MB at all. Thank yourselves for it and while you’re at it, thank Princeton also. Most of us loved MB also, but you guys didn’t appreciate Prodigy when he was the main talent in the group, so don’t start crying now. We’re sorry for the UK fans who did show Prodigy love, and for those U.S. fans who did show Prodigy some love and appreciation, we are really sorry and feel deeply for you and understand your hurt and disappointment, but the rest of you MB fans, as the saying goes “That’s show Biz” No sympathy or empathy here.

  33. Mrs. Royal says:

    Prodigy please dont leave. Like I could NOTT believe this is happening. I hope this is a rumor. U cant leave us fans like this plz. Mb will never b the same without u. We love u prod. I dont care how “good” Jacob is but he will never replace u. U were in the group since the beginning. Plz stay there till the end. Ur cute talented funny and we love u. Dont make us sad prod plz. :-(

  34. jada says:

    I cant believe this i luvv u prod…..and its true without u prod mindless behavior will never be da same…..
    Team mindless since day one

  35. jada says:

    It makes me soo mad….everyones begging prod to come back but is not looking at it from his point of view. Yeah i may have not went to a single of mbs concerts or even went to their meet and greets, but i was still supportive to ALL OF THEM, not one or two but all… And some of yall so called mb fans , how yall gon say yall luv mb but dont appericiate all of them. If yall didnt notice prodigy was also apart of mb but yall didnt seem to get that it was always about princeton, ray ray , and roc royal but i never really heard prodigy my opinion is you should never have a favorite …. So i just wanna kno wat yall mad for and get this everybody say how much they gon miss prod and stuff, but i gareente that if he do decides to stay in the group its gon still be the same so i dont blame him for wanting to leave …all, i can say is that i always loved mb since 2008 and i will always be supportive to ALL OF THEM through thick or thin, will i guess this is it ill always luv you prod stay yrue to yourself and i wish you the best, u taught me to keep my head held high and never give up on myself …keep up with the dancing and singing i can say i will truly miss you and will always support you #team mindless since day one love you mb

  36. jada says:

    Thank you and oh one more thing , how in the world can people tell somebody not to do something…like seriously i heard a bunch of people tell prod or should i say craig to not leave the group, i mean like come on people thats his choice and what really irritates me is how ya ll gon ask him to stay but be cussin him out, like dont yall think thats gonna make him want to leave even more ….so many thoughts is floating in my head but im not gon say them cuz it may hurt a few people,

  37. rayraylover says:

  41. winter cosby says:

    i love prodigy so much whatever reason he left i know it was a good one

  42. Tonjae says:

    I never really liked prodigy but he always made himself look real and that the group would stay together forever but i guess that was all a lie. I will always love mb no matter what but it’s just not the same without prodigy. Their is nothing tm can do about it because prodigy’s mind is made up. He wants to go solo i wish him the best luck. Just know mb will never be the same untill he comes back…

  44. I’m mad as fuck prodigy singing solo

  45. Jlah says:

    I heard that prodigy got kicked out of the group because he got a girl pregnant!

  46. Maleah says:

    I went to the concert May 22,2014 I ask RayRay where’s prodigy and RayRay said that he dropped out. I mean like I loveddd Prodigy very much that you wouldn’t under stand I went to the concert to see him too I was even VIP and front row I have a pass to prove it.

  47. Alissa says:

    I believe Prodigy made a mistake by leaving mindless behavior. The beloved group is what brought him fame, and it is unwise to leave that success behind. If the group was failing or uncompatable then him seperating himself from the group would make perfect sense, but from my understanding the 4 boys were doing just fine together. Sure there were those such as Beyonce and Justin Timerlake that made the same move as the young Prodigy in their younger years, but i must be honest when i say that Prodigy is no Justin Timberlake nor a Beyonce. I am not trashing the young star, i myself am a 16 year-old fan of MB and am upset by the split, but i just personally believe that he will not be as successful on his own and that he made a horrible decision.

  48. jacy says:

    uhhh guys I know its sad prod is amazing and a gr8 dancer but what about his health???

  49. gabrielle says:

    Why are you doing this prodigy, we loved you guys better as a group. I really hope we get to see you guys together again.
