MC Serch of 3rd Bass appeared as a guest recently on 'In My Expert Opinion' and discussed a number of things.
In addition to addressing his ownership of two percent of Nas' first two albums and his battle with substance abuse, he discussed his fractured relationship with his former partner in 3rd Bass, Pete Nice.
"For me, a toxic environment is something that I cannot be around," Serch said on the podcast. "It will take away from the core of who I am and that's not worth any amount of money in the world. I have created a business for myself that sustains me very healthily without the need to perform."
When asked how things went bad between he and Pete (who Serch refers to throughout the conversation simply as his "ex-partner"), Serch says that it was because Pete called his wife a bitch. "He called her out of her name, and he never apologized," he remembered. "I got over that. And we tried to do shows together in 2009 and 2013 and it didn't work. My wife told me that if I wanted to be MC Serch she was out, she needed me to be Michael."
