A-Reece Addresses Flame’s Departure From The Wrecking Crew in His New Song ‘Carele$$’

Looks like A-Reece and Flame clashed over a woman.

A-Reece dropped a new song this morning. Titled "Carele$$," the song features The Wrecking Crew Member Wordz. Well, rather what's left of the crew. The Pretoria-based collective recently shed a few members, one of them being Flame.

Fans have been speculating on what exactly happened to TWC, but nothing had been confirmed thus far. On "Carele$$," however, Reece lays it bare that the reason Flame left the crew was a woman.


He raps:

"What more can I say?/ What you expect to hear when niggas ask me about Flame?/ What makes you think I wanted it to happen this way?/ I was there before the money, she would never say the same/ How could you stick around and let her have her own way?/ She even go as far as throwing dirt on my name/ How you let her come between us and the records that we made?/Shit is crazy, but I just figured you acting your age."

"Carele$$" is short, and only consists of one verse from Reece, and its sole purpose is to clear the air.
