In 2015, Headliner allegedly took the liberty of releasing a song, "Pension Plan (Clap Your Hands To This)", under the name "Arrested Development" without prior consent from founding and existing member, Speech, claiming that he had every right to do so. Headliner also runs his own children's edutainment brand, the Sandtown All-Stars. [2]
