naughty by nature

It looked like Naughty By Nature were heading for another break up earlier this week as Treach publicly “fired” groupmate Vin Rock on Twitter. Vinnie responded by tweeting, “Business 101: You can’t Fire the Owner.” Despite later reports that the outfit hadn’t officially split up and were set to continue touring, Treach has launched another attack on Vin by dropping this diss track, “Tall Midget.” *Sigh*

According to AllHipHop, the tensions between Treach and Vin have been building up for years, and the pair haven’t spoke in about two years. Despite the personal issues, though, the trio have ensured business goes on as usual.

We never wanted to be the groups that couldn’t resolve our issues. Nobody is larger than the group. We always fit [Vinnie] in even if there wasn’t a spot for [him] to fit in. You will never see Vin do a Naughty show [alone], because he can’t. Me and KG [the group’s DJ and hit-making producer] can do this for the rest of our lives. I don’t work for nobody. I’ll never say never to nothing, because I’m a business man. For now, Vinnie is on a “grown man timeout.”

Listen to “Tall Midget” after the jump…
