Naughty by Nature shake-up right before the Roots Picnic

What will happen with the Roots picnic line-up?

Naughty by Nature shake-up right before the Roots Picnic


Naughty by Nature's Treach (a/k/a Anthony Criss) took to Twitter last night to fire bandmate Vinnie (a/k/a Vin Rock a/k/a Vincent Brown) with some choice expletives.

"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.

Vinnie apparently didn't know he was ousted from the group, tweeting, "I'm waking to drama. Spoke to my publicist. Silence is Golden. In the meantime Business 101: You can't Fire the Owner ;-)"

Here's the problem, though: The East Orange hip hop group is slated to not only perform at the Roots Picnic on June 1, but the Roots were scheduled to back them as well.
