The Young Money roster just got a little smaller.

Taking to Instagram earlier this week, Harlem rapper Jae Millz announced that he was leaving the label that Lil Wayne built, after over 8 years with the team. After thanking Wayne for the opportunity and expressing his love for him, Millz wrote:

“at this point, I think it’s time for me to start the next chapter of my book. I appreciate these last 8 years of my career & my life… and no matter what, it can’t be erased!! S.O 2 every Young Money artist & every employee!! Y’all know its luv forever! It’s just time for me to go! I wish everybody nothing but the best! Luv.”

During his time at Young Money, Millz appeared on the group’s compilation album in 2009, most notably on the project’s two smash singles, “Bedrock” and “Every Girl.” He has also appeared on multiple Wayne albums and mixtapes, and released countless of his own mixtapes. He has not yet released his debut album, however, which likely may be a factor in his decision to pursue other ventures.

Millz makes for the third artist to leave Young Money since its inception (as it’s not to be confused with Cash Money,) after Tyga and Lil Chuckee. Curren$y can also be included in that list, though he left way before the inclusion of people like Nicki Minaj and Drake, and before Wayne made the imprint an official label.

Good luck to Millz in the next phase!

First off, I Just wanna say thank you to one of the greatest rappers ever & one of the greatest human beings I’ve ever met in my life! @liltunechi I’m grateful to have had a chance to learn so much from you & most of all, I’m grateful for you giving me a chance!! Something I’ll NEVER FORGET!!!…but at this point, I think it’s time for me to start the next chapter of my book. I appreciate these last 8 years of my career & my life… and no matter what, it can’t be erased!! S.O 2 every Young Money artist & every employee!! Y’all know its luv forever! It’s just time for me to go! I wish everybody nothing but the best! Luv
