Naughty by Nature’s Treach sat down with DJ Vlad to talk growing up in New Jersey, transitioning from the street life to rapping, and what it was like experiencing the success of “OPP” and “Hip Hop Hooray.” Also having a close relationship with the late Tupac Shakur, Treach details their bond, what it was like at the height of the East Coast/West Coast beef and the reason he feels both BIG and Pac were assassinated.

Treach Tells The Truth ‘They’ Tried To Hide From Him About His Homie 2Pac’s Assassination (Video)

Holy sh!t. This went exactly NOT as Vlad expected, but exactly the way it needed to. Bet money that the hit count on this episode goes nowhere near a million. Mumble rap and booty shake, yes, multimillion views. The truth in tell-it-like-it-is vids like this, HELL NO! But that ain’t gonna stop me from watching and sharing this Treach (of Naughty By Nature) confessional. You should do the same. I would not mind being wrong on this one!

Treach opened up to VladTV about getting the news that 2Pac was shot in Vegas, which he initially thought wasn’t a big deal. However, as time went on, he couldn’t get through to anyone close to the wounded rapper, and Treach said everyone knew to keep him away from the hospital due to his hot temper.

During the conversation, Treach spoke about how hard it was to record “Mourn You Till I Join You” and his thoughts on 2Pac’s murder being the worst kept secret. Hit the above video to hear what he had to say.

Treach & KayGee Speak On The Rumored Breakup & Changes To ‘Naughty By Nature’ (Video)

The Breakfast Club of Power 105 welcome’s Golden Era Hip-Hop trio act Naughty By Nature. Notably absent: Vin Rock! What???? Man. Somehow, I’m hoping they work through this. The Naughty has been through drama before (in fact, Kay Gee mentioned his ‘issues’ with Treach above) and got back on track. Watch the interview and explanation of the bad blood – from [mostly] Treach’s point of view. Wonder how long Kay can stay neutral in all this though.

What a mess. Keep watching with part 2 of the interview after the jump. So Naughty By Nature… the full trio… is booked for a show at The Roots’ Picnic this summer? With the sucker punches and slick talk flying about, we’ll see.

Naughty By Nature: Who’s Fault Was It On The Tour? (Video)

“While most of the shows that Naughty By Nature perform are usually packed to the ceiling. Every now and then, a promoter falls short and fails to bring a good crowd. Even after 20 years of performing, they still argue about ways to make the show tighter and who’s at fault when things go wrong. Backstage after a show, VinRock, Trigger Treach and DJ KayGee sit back and discuss what was wrong with that nights show.” – Naughty118

‘Naughty By Nature’ Says There Are More Artists Today Than Fans (Video)

Legendary rap group ‘Naughty By Nature’ appeared on 50’s site for an interview celebrating over 20 years in the game & one of the key points Treach made in the interview is something that I’ve been saying for a while now. There are simply more artists than there are fans these days. Everyone & their mother raps or sings in 2011. I’ve been in radio since 1990 & never have I’ve seen the climate this bad where EVERYONE wants to be an artist. More often than not people don’t understand the amount of work & sacrifice it takes to be successful in it. Most people are not cut out for this business so if you’re not in it for longevity like Naughty By Nature continues to be for over 20 years then its going to be a disappointing ride for anyone jumping in for the wrong reasons.
