Happy Birthday To Treach Of Naughty By Nature! 6 Degrees Of Success

Screen Shot 2021 12 02 at 8.44.00 AM

Today in 1970 in “Illtown” New Jersey, the king of “OPP”, better known as Treach, was born. For those who don’t know, Treach was the frontman for the New Jersey rap collective Naughty By Nature. Born Anthony Criss in East Orange, New Jersey, Treach got his musical start in his hometown. He, Vin Rock, and DJ Kay Gee came together as the group New Style and released an album called Independent Leaders in 1989. Treach and Naughty by Nature saw the majority of their success with their 1991 single “O.P.P”. This song featured a sample from The Jackson 5’s “ABC” and debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 chart making it one of the most popular crossover songs in rap history. The success of this single opened the doors for Treach to venture into other elements of Hip Hop culture in the 90s. Starting with a guest appearance in the 1992 cult classic Juice, Treach began the next wave of his career as an actor. His biggest role came in 194 when he starred as “A-1” in Jason’s Lyric.

In honor of his birthday, we have put together a list of the six degrees of success that put Treach in the room with other influential voices in Hip Hop and popular culture.

1. Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton- First on this list is “Pepa” of the legendary Salt N Pepa. From 1998 to 2001, the two were joined together in holy matrimony. They share a daughter beautifully named Egypt Jahnari Criss born September 2, 1998.

2. Tupac Shakur- In his first big-screen appearance, Tupac played the role of “Bishop” in the cult classic Juice. If you remember correctly, Bishop was not a character who made friends easily. At the beginning of the movie, Bishop has beef with a character named Radames and if you pay attention, you can see Treach standing behind Radames as he and Bishop have one of their many verbal altercations.

3. James Gandolfini- Who doesn’t love a good mob story? In 2006, Treach’s TV acting prowess landed him a gig on an episode of The Sopranos as the character “Marvin”. His role was short-lived, but not many are able to say they played the opposite of the infamous Tony Soprano.

4. Queen Latifah- This fellow New Jersey rapper was in and out of Treach’s musical and acting career. She was one of the first successful artists to give Naughty By Nature the attention they deserved. She has featured Treach on songs throughout her discography. She was even cast alongside Treach in his first big-screen appearance (although they were never on screen together).

5. Leonardo DiCaprio-Although this relationship may be more loosely based than the rest, it’s important none the less. Naughty’s track “Hip Hop Hooray” was featured on the soundtrack of the very successful film Wolf of Wall Street starring Leo DiCaprio in 2013.

Rapper Pepa Sued Over Unpaid Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Pepa Sues Doctor for Botched Butt Job

Pepa from the legendary group Salt N’ Pepa is in legal trouble. 

This update comes after Pepa sued Dr. Sayah back in 2019 over alleged negligence. According to the lawsuit, the rap icon, born Sandra Denton, was referred to Sayah to remove implants that had shifted from a car accident. Instead she alleges that he convinced her to do multiple corrective surgeries which left her with a hard butt.

Reports emerged Wednesday that the “Push It” star is now being sued by the Beverly Hills Doctor. Sayah says Pepa’s reconstructive surgery on her body cost $676,675.00 and he wants to get paid in full. 

Radar Online reported, “The doctor filed the lien as part of Denton’s lawsuit against Uber over the car crash she was in.

Sayah wants to make sure he gets paid if Denton is awarded a dime in the suit against the ride-sharing company. The lien will allow him to collect if any judgment is entered in favor of the singer.

Sayah attached a series of involves from 2019 which included costly procedures to remove a bunch of injections and implants that Denton had inserted into her.”

Denton said eventually she went to another doctor who told her there was a “large amount of biopolymer silicone and dead scar tissue remaining” based on an MRI.”

The lawsuit is ongoing which makes sense as to why she hasn’t paid her unpaid invoices.

On Friday (Oct. 26), Nas hosted a Hollywood costume party at Poppy nightclub in LA where he was disguised as Pinky from Next Friday the flashy record store owner. Rocking the exact purple and black ensemble with an afro wig and vintagesque shades, Nas took to his Instagram stories (which has taken its 24-hour course) to share his motion in character with a video where the Pinky impersonator is single-handedly picking his afro.

The next stop was George Clooney’s Casamigos Halloween party in Las Vegas at CATCH the following evening (Oct. 27) where he entered the star-studded bash as an ’80s themed Michael Jackson. Despite his costume missing the pop legend’s signature jerry curls, he surely got the fedora hat spot on. According to Forbes, the “Made You Look” spitter did a special performance which was followed by a surprise DJ set by Kendell Jenner.

Nas shared a flick of his fit on the gram where he is seen rocking Jackson’s iconic black and gold military-style sequined jacket and cropped black pants showing off the classic sparkled socks and black loafers. “Heal The World 🌍 #MJ#Catchopeningnight in Vegas,” reads the caption.

Nas is not the only one who kept it funky this past pre-Halloween weekend. His own rap protégé, Dave East dressed up as Ike Turner for one of his events while Jermaine Dupri, who was also in the building for Clooney’s bash dressed up as a minion from Despicable Me. Femcee legend Pepa from the iconic Salt-N-Pepa was also in the building spotted dressed as a female deity.
