25 years after forming, a rift in legendary hip-hop group Naughty By Nature surfaces with member Treach publicly booting Vin Rock from the group.
Frontman Treach made the revelation to fans late Monday (May 6), saying that he “fired” Vinnie.
“Vinnie from NAUGHTY BY NATURE is Officially FIRED!! Anything he does besides shows til Sept is Frugazy!! F*** him & the Ground he Walks!!,” Treach tweeted (@TriggerTreach). “Anybody that f***s with that Bitch a** N**** Don’t F*** with Me!!”
While Vin Rock didn’t respond directly to Treach’s comments, he appeared to offer his side via an Instagram photo with a quote from 1800s tribal chief, Sitting Bull.
“Warriors are not 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 thers. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who can not provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity.”
