Slim Of 112 Eludes That The Group Is Disbanding Once Again, Blames Q. Parker And Daron
Things are definitely not “Peaches and Cream” with the members of 112. Lead singer Slim (real name Marvin Scandrick) has leaked emails between the members of the group and management, implying that he and Mike are in the middle of a nasty split with group members Q. Parker and Daron. The emails read:
“To be clear, we will be taking our half of 112 and walking away amicably due to the condition of not being able to reconcile the differences regarding personnel. As original members we are all legally able to use the name. You are Slim can’t continue to use it as you see fit, and Q and myself will do the same.”
The next email shows conversation with manager, Greg Browning:
“Fellas, hope you all are well. We all spoke last week and have yet to follow up conversation. I have a few questions that have yet to be answered.
1. Mike and Slim are you guys gonna continue working with Greg as it relates to 112? If yes then I wanna say let’s finish out this tour strong and part ways amicably agreeing to disagree as it relates to personnel.
If not then:
My suggestions is either an accountant or lawyer.
As it pertains to walking away amicably. If you choose to walk away from 112 you are choosing to of your own accord. 112 will move on without you. And I want to make this abundantly clear to all. If you walk away from 112 there is no coming back.”
Slim’s caption further reveals tensions within the group:
“@officialslim_ People sometimes you’re quiet to protect… noone is perfect, trust me I’m far from it… but I don’t pretend to… IT’S TIME TO BE HONEST ABOUT 112. You want answers? Why do you see only 2 people in performances? As you see in these texts especially the first two is very self-explanatory, my text is the last. I’m for the brand. I never left it, never cheated it… Part of being a leader is humbleness. Putting others before self for the brand. Just how I’m built… Ironically the same guys who broke the group up before are at it again and although it’s easy to walk away and pick up solo situations or investments it would be unfair to at least give a hint in what’s going on. I did that after the 5th album when this happened before… egos and mistrust amongst the members both business and personal caused that too. A person who only is around me because of a contract ain’t worthy of calling me a brother. Brotherhood was broken in 03-04, parties know why and I was honest in where I stand so STOP LYING ABOUT FRIENDSHIPS… it’s bizness. Unlike others I came back to brand for the fans and culture. In fact I RISKED EVERYTHING in what I believed. Not going to allow it again for members to run brand in the ground…AGAIN. The brand is in good hands. Just like the great groups I look up to that maybe changes faces but NEVER the integrity of the brand I’m gonna fight for the same with 112. People these texts were on March 27th-28th. Look at our shows with the timeline it makes sense. For a person to wanna sue the same person who helped you when you were at your worst… no we aren’t bros… be who you are and proud! Don’t hide your fangs and rattle. ??? Easy to lie to others, I will expose your ACTIONS. How are you entitled to a brand you’re not loyal to??Hard to excuse when it happens over and OVER AGAIN. Your management/lawyer knows you a few years.. I’VE KNOWN YOU MOST OF YOUR LIFE! Will answer questions at the appropriate time…stay tuned!?? #112FOREVER #OTHERSOVERSELF #LEADSINGERSPEAKS #CANTBEFAKE #SUPPORTREALNESS #ISTANDFORTHEBRAND #ITHOUGHTITWASWEUSOUR #TEXTSAREWORTHAMILLION #IAMMYBROTHERSKEEPER”
Along with a hilarious screen grab of Michael Jackson eating popcorn in the “Thriller” music video, group member Mike confirmed in his own post on Instagram that he and Slim will continue on as members of 112. He said:
“@michaelkeithof112 I’m kidding… I totally saw what happened last night.
All I have to say is thank you to all of you sending positive energy this way as @officialslim_ and I continue Transitioning from 4 members to 2. This sucks but the 112 brand will be ok
As it will always be bigger than the sum of it’s parts.
@officialslim_ and I will continue to do our best and keep the 112 legacy moving. Again thanks guys”

Would you support two separate 112 groups?
