On the heels of her brand new self-penned record, Soul, The Floacist is finally speaking out publicly regarding Marsha Ambrosius leaving Floetry. Since the breakup over six years ago, the Floacist had remained silent, while Ambrosius spoke publicly about leaving the group, but now she is finally saying her piece.
“This is the first Floetry album, after a six year split, and Marsha has been doing a lot of excessive talking during that time, all of which has gone unanswered by myself. My silence could have been confusing to the fans, so I wanted to address the split, at the right time, in the correct medium,” explains The Floacist on her brand new track “Soul.”
She continues: “It was important for me to comment truthfully on the main issue…Marsha left Floetry, after so much joint success and foundation building, to join Aftermath Records, with no assurance of an album release. Ultimately, holding Floetry to ransom, to pursue a possibility of ‘mainstream’ success and all that was gained, was whatever they would’ve put into her pocket, and a mixtape release entitled ‘Neo Soul is Dead’. This to me is the perfect example of someone selling out, or selling their soul.”
Back in 2010, The Floacist told us that a Floetry reunion could be possible, but with her new remarks, this is looking more unlikely.
