In the Growing Up Hip Hop episode ‘Lie to Fly’, while Romeo Miller surprises Angela Simmons at her baby shower, Egypt Criss meets her father Anthony “Treach” Criss in Los Angeles. Egypt confesses that she’s working on a song in the studio with Dam, Dash and Boogie – against her mother’s (Sandra “Pepa” Denton) wishes. Treach warns Egypt: “Listen, I told you I’d support you with anything you do but you have to keep it 100.” He adds: “The fame is lame if you gotta lie to fly, baby.” And then he gives her an ultimatum. “If you don’t tell her, I’ll have to tell her.”
Treach is best known for being the lead rapper of the Grammy Award-winning hip hop trio Naughty By Nature (“O.P.P.”). He and Pepa were married from 1998 to 2001. Egypt is their only child together. Growing Up Hip Hop airs Thursdays at 9pm on WEtv.
