Twitter has become the place where rappers often air out their grievances. But this one breaks our hearts. On Monday night (May 6), Treach of Naughty by Nature fired Vin Rock from the group.

The tweets read: “Vinnie from NAUGHTY BY NATURE is Officially FIRED!! Anything he does besides shows til Sept is Frugazy!! F— him & the Ground he Walks!! Anybody that f—s with that Bitch ass N—- Don’t F— with Me!!”

Sigh. Can’t we all just get along?

There’s no word on what caused the rift between the two members.

Naughty by Nature DJ and producer Kay Gee has remained silence on this sudden breakup. However, Vinnie sent out a cryptic message on his Instagram account.

It reads: “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.”


Now for the record, NBN have broken up in the past before reuniting after members sat down and discussed their grievances within the group.

But this looks serious.

Also, this puts the upcoming 2013 Roots Picnic somewhat in jeopardy. The rap duo are among the headlining acts for the event, which is backed by the Roots band. It would be cool to have Naughty by Nature bring that New Jersey flow to Philadelphia.


Hopefully, Treach and Vin Rock can resolve the matter and keep bringing that hip-hop hooray.
