Treach of Naughty by Nature featured in Cipha Sounds' Hip Hop Improv
On Friday, July 26, 2013, Treach was featured in the Hip Hop Improv Show - TAKE IT PERSONAL presented by Hot 97's Cipha Sounds and Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB), the top improv theatre and school in NYC. Improvisers from team Nobody's Token along with Cipha Sounds' team "A Tribe Called YES" (Abra Tabak, Anthony Atamanuik, Brandon Gardner, Christian Capozzoli, Phil Jackson, Laura Wilcox) reenacted stories originally told by Treach.
During the show rapper Treach shared many stories including how he first found his legendary machete Ali Baba. "Treach from Naughty by Nature blesses the UCB East stage with some hilarious stories about the Beef between New York and New Jersey, how he misses his machete 'Ali baba', and how he likes to watch TV fully naked on his couch. His personality always wins over the crowd," said Cipha Sounds, "That dude is the craziest."
Take it Personal will continue every Friday at the legendary UCB Theater.
Special Guests included Keith Nelson (AllHipHop.com), Copper Tony (kevinnottingham.com), L. Boogs (Hot 97), Jason Rodriguez, Willy Dope (Par-City), and more.
