Treach of legendary hip-hop group Naughty by Nature made a new album announcement and addressed recent praise of him from Eminem at 2023’s Rock The Bells Festival.
“When Eminem shouts me out its nothin’ but love. Eminem said he almost stopped rapping when he heard me, when I heard Eminem I almost stopped rapping. I’m like this guy right here, you cant top nothing he is saying right now. Not cause he is a white boy, he is getting the accolades he is getting right now because he is one of the dopest emcees to touch the mic ever in history, and if you have a problem with it say it so he can chew yo a– out the f–king frame! I call him my light skinned twin. ” said Treach.
Then he directly addressed Eminem: “Em! I am working on a solo album and I ain’t taking it to nobody but you. So now you got it out there in the universe, come see me – love you.”
In a recent interview with New York Times magazine, Eminem revealed that he contemplated quitting after hearing Naughty By Nature’s debut album. “I studied MCs who used multi-syllabic phrasing. I would gravitate to Lord Finesse, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace, Redman and Special Ed. Treach from Naughty By Nature too. When that first Naughty By Nature album dropped, that whole summer I could not write a rap. I was so depressed, I thought I would never be that good and I should just quit.”
