There's a scene in the 1992 crime film Juice where Tupac Shakur (who played Roland Bishop) has a scuffle with several members of a Puerto Rican gang.
Tupac Shakur (who played Roland Bishop) has a scuffle with several members of a Puerto Rican gang. The confrontation is full of bravado, as leader Radames (played by Vincent Laresca) gets in 2Pacs face and calls him a punk. But the gang member who actually grabs Pac by the jacket is one of the late Hip Hop legends good friends Treach from Naughty By Nature. Wearing a black Raiders beanie, black hoodie, an African bead necklace and some blue Levis, Treach looks every bit the part. Juice, which turned 30 on Monday (January 17), was Treachsfirst movie role. During a recent interview with HipHopDX, he revealed theres a part of the scene people didnt get to see. When you see the movie, you know who I am, he says. Youre going to know me because Im the only dark-skinned guy in the Puerto Rican gang. When you see that you going to be like, Why is this black dude over here? No, I said for the movie sake, I was Dominican. It was Uptown. It was actually one part with me and 2Pac when I yanked him up and grabbed him. And it was so funny, he had to hold his smile in. Because he looking like, My homie grabbing me? This is so unlike him. But hes a great actor, so he held it until they said cut. And then all of us fell on the ground.

On Saturday (January 22), Treach will appear in the Lifetime film Vanished: Searching For My Sister alongside Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress Tatyana Ali. But believe it or not, Treach finds reality television much more difficult than shooting a film or television show. It might sound funny, but reality is the hardest for me, he confesses. Just because youre dealing with your own family issues. You feeling me? When youre acting, youre a whole different character. You could show your ass, just because that not you. You dont have to worry about saying something or getting canceled. Its all part of the script. You got to have so many different emotions going through when you talking to your kids, especially in reality show.
