Pablo Villatoro, a member of award winning Christian hip-hop group Group 1 Crew announced today that he was leaving the group. He said this in a letter to his fans.

Hey, what’s up G1C land! This is Pablo from The Crew! I wanted to personally write this letter to our fans to make an announcement that I have stepped down from Group 1 Crew. This past year, I have learned so much and God has done so much within me. Now being newly married, my main priority is to build a solid foundation for my immediate ministry, which is my marriage. God has blessed me with an amazing wife that has fought with me through every battle the enemy has thrown our way, and by that I am incredibly humbled.

I’m excited for this new season! One thing I know to be true is when God shows you the purpose for your life, and you lay every dream and desire of your heart before him, He is faithful to make the way clear and bring the pieces together. He has already begun to do so in my life.

I am extremely grateful for every single person that has supported us from the very beginning and will continue to do so after reading this. You all have played a major role in our personal lives- more than you will ever know! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of you at our shows throughout the years, and have made some great friendships along the way. Our mission as a group has always been to inspire people to chase after their dreams, and today I echo that very same message. No matter what curveball life throws at you, remember God created you for a purpose. Don’t let anything get in the way of your dreams!

Love all of you!
– Pablo
