The musicians formed the trio with Tank back in 2007, but only released one album, 2013's Three Kings.

He took to Instagram this week (begs14Dec15) to update fans on the status of the group, suggesting Ginuwine had bowed out of the band, prompting them to part ways as friends.

R&B star Tank has pulled out of plans to perform the U.S. National Anthem at Tuesday night's (29Apr14) Los Angeles Clippers game amid a racism scandal swirling around the basketball team's owner Donald Sterling.

The businessman hit headlines over the weekend (26-27Apr14) following the emergence of an audio clip which features a man, believed to be him, voicing a number of inflammatory racial slurs.

The tape, which was obtained by Tmz.com, sparked a flurry of debate on Twitter.com, with a number of stars, including Red Hot Chili Peppers rocker Flea, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg and Kevin Hart, attacking Sterling and calling for a Clippers boycott.

Ginuwine: 'Tgt Album Is No More'


Tyrese Ginuwine Tank

Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank have shelved plans to release an album as R+B supergroup TGT, blaming label politics for the project's downfall.


The trio announced plans to hit the studio together last year (07) and release a collection of tracks under their new moniker.


But Ginuwine has now revealed the disc has been put on hold indefinitely - although they've found a way around all the legal issues to release some songs to fans.


He tells SingersRoom.com, "Due to label and legal issues, we will not be able to release an official TGT album. However, we did make some amazing music which will appear on each of our respective albums."

Tank Blasts New Orleans Cops Over Alleged Attack


Tank

LATEST: R+B star Tank has slammed New Orleans police for treating him "like a criminal" during his arrest earlier this week (begs18Feb08) because he was completely innocent in the incident.
The singer - real name Durrel Babbs - was on his way to an afterparty for the NBA All-Star Weekend at the House of Blues with his female friend Ira Dewitt in the early hours of Monday (18Feb08) when they were prevented by police from entering the club due to a shooting in the area.
Dewitt claimed the cops were rude to them after blocking their path, prompting Tank to ask the officers, "Why are you gonna be like that?" before starting to walk away from the scene.
But the incident turned violent when three policemen allegedly attacked the star and used their Taser guns to give him an electric shock.
And Tank is disgusted at the cops' behaviour.
In a statement, he says, "The most frustrating part of the entire incident is knowing that I did not do anything to pose a threat but was treated like a criminal.
"With a clean-cut image and a lady by my side, the law took matters into their own hands and chose to endanger my safety and those accompanying me. It's 2008 and New Orleans is still very much in trouble beyond the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I'm a living witness."
The singer, who was arrested and booked for disorderly conduct in addition to various other charges, has now hired attorney Benard Charbonnet with the intention of taking legal action against the officers. The incident is currently under police investigation.

Tank Arrested Amid Claims Of Police Brutality


Tank

A close pal of R+B singer Tank has accused New Orleans police of assaulting the star during his arrest on Monday morning (18Feb08) for disorderly conduct.
Tank - real name Durrel Babbs - was on his way to an afterparty for the NBA All-Star Weekend at the House of Blues with his female friend Ira Dewitt in the early hours of Monday, when they were prevented by police from venturing into the club due to a shooting in the area.
Dewitt claims the cops were rude to them after blocking off their path, prompting Babbs to ask the officers "Why are you gonna be like that?", before starting to walk away from the scene.
But the incident turned violent when three policemen allegedly attacked Babbs and used their Taser guns to give him an electric shock.
Dewitt tells MediaTakeOut.com, "We started walking away, but they grabbed Tank and threw him against the wall.
"(The cops) bent one of his arms up and the other arm back and asked him to do something. Tank told them that he couldn't and before you knew it, there were three cops all over him... and they tased (sic) him."
Babbs was arrested and booked for disorderly conduct in addition to various other charges, and he was released on bail on Monday, according to reports.
A spokesperson for the New Orleans Police Department has yet to comment on the allegations.

Sparks Impresses R+b Star Tank


American Idol Jordin Sparks Tank

American Idol winner Jordin Sparks is set to appear on R+B singer Tank's new album - after impressing the star during an impromptu jam session.
The pair performed together during a break from selecting outfits at the Grammys Style Studio - the awards gifting suite - on Friday (08Feb08) when Tank, real name Durell Babbs, began playing on a piano.
Babbs coaxed Sparks to sing with him, with the pair improvising a track with the chorus "I don't ever want to lose you", and she sang the new tune for three minutes.
And the Grammy-nominated star is so impressed by the star's singing talents, he is desperate to have Sparks appear on his forthcoming album.
He says, "She's been recruited."
