Treach on OPP Blowing Up, Changing the Shoe Game with Timberland Boots

In this clip from Treach’s interview with VladTV, the Naughty by Nature MC tells Vlad that he had no idea “OPP” would be a worldwide hit. Treach then goes on to explain how Naughty by Nature changed the fashion game in hip hop: “We turned the fades to braids,” he says. While hip hop groups were wearing adidas, Naughty by Nature wore Timberlands and Dickies. Treach also tells Vlad that no one knew where they were from, saying, “No one knew there were motherf***ing ghettos in Jersey.”
