Anthony Criss (born December 2, 1970), better known by his stage name Treach, is an American rapper and actor. He is best known as the lead rapper of the hip hop group Naughty by Nature.
With Naughty by Nature, Treach worked with fellow group members Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee. Sometimes he would share verses on songs with Vin Rock, but often, especially on the group's earlier albums, Treach would be the sole performer on the song. Examples of this are some of the group's most well known singles from their self-titled second album, such as "O.P.P.," and "Ghetto Bastard".
Treach's chiseled physique has helped him land roles in crime films, television crime dramas and as a leading man in romance films, including a full frontal in the 2001 crime comedy Love and a Bullet.
According to VH1 Treach has been with common law wife Cicely Evans for the last 7 years. They have 2 children together. The couple is currently starring on Season 5 of Couples Therapy on VH1.
Treach was married to Sandra Denton, better known as "Pepa" of the hip-hop group Salt-n-Pepa, from 1998 to 2001. The couple had one daughter, Egypt Jahnari Criss (born September 2, 1998). He is also the older brother of rapper Diesel from the Rottin Razkals, a close affiliate group to Naughty by Nature.
Treach was arrested in Union City, New Jersey on April 10, 2014. He allegedly passed traffic police in his Cadillac Escalade at 55-miles-per-hour in the 25-miles-per-hour zone and attempted to elude law enforcement officers after being given a signal to stop, leading them on a high-speed chase for nine blocks before stopping. Upon stopping, he left his vehicle and ran towards the police car, the officers drew their weapons and ordered him to return to his vehicle. Treach later complied with the officers' orders and was cited for reckless driving, speeding and driving with a suspended license. Officers also found there was a warrant for his arrest out of Essex County, New Jersey for failing to appear at a hearing related to child support, and warrants out of Union City and Secaucus, New Jersey for failing to appear at hearings related to motor vehicle violations. He made his first court appearance on the charge in Jersey City, New Jersey on April 11 and spent the night in Hudson County jail in Kearny before being released after posting $15,000 bail.Make Treach Playlist
