    What artist have left a successful group to go on to have even greater success as solo artist or in a new group?


    Once again N.W.A comes to mind with Ice Cube leaving N.W.A and having even greater solo success.

    So... can you guys think of any rock, rap, or r&b artist that were in a very successful group then decided to leave or got kicked out... but had even more success after they left the group?

    He tried to hump that paralyzed chick in that movie and had to jump out the window and run for it with his whole ass hanging out.

    Everybody from that band made hits when they were with the band and after they left the band. They were nothing but hit makers. Thats why I call them the greatest boy band ever.
