After more than 20 years of singing “O.P.P.” and “Hip Hop Hooray,” it looks like legendary hip-hop trio Naughty by Nature are calling it quits.
Treach recently took to Twitter to “officially fire” Vin Rock and curse the “the ground he walks” on.
Vin took to the Naughty by Nature Twitter account, which he manages, to speak his piece. “Business 101: You can’t fire the owner,” he replied.
He also posted a photo of a Native American “Sitting Bull” on Instagram with this caption:
“Warriors are not what you what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others.”
Hours later, Treach shot back with a diss song called “Tall Midget.”
“We never wanted to be the group that goes though anything that we can’t resolve on our own, or anything else,” Treach said in an interview with AllHipHop.com. “Nobody—me being Treach, Kay [Gee] and Vin [Rock] being Vin – is larger than the group. We came [in] on some ego-free shit. Now, when somebody comes and gets larger than the group, it’s gonna be a problem.”
“How dare you ever play like you bigger than the group, or [call yourself] the owner? [You're] the boss or you the shot-caller. Or you’re anything else other than what the fuck you are—which is a nigga that needs to be enjoying the fucking ride. Don’t never question who I am, what I do, how I am. Don’t stay in ya lane—play ya position. Dogs, you can be hired help at any time. You never wrote one hit. You never produced one hit song. You came on as a homie that was there…we threw you a lot of bones just to keep you up in there ’cause you was the homie, from the door, who was up in there. And we always fit you in when there wasn’t a spot for you to be in.”
Treach, Vinny and third member DJ Kay Gee are scheduled to hit the stage together in Durham, NC on May 18th. Based on the outcome of the show, we’ll see to see if this breakup is really, really real.
