Flavor Unit emcee Apache, born Anthony Teaks, passed away after a protracted illness.



As an original member of Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit, Apache first appeared on 45 King Presents The Flavor Unit and his best known single “Gangsta b***h” peaked at #11 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles Chart.



Shakim Compere, CEO and Co Founder of Flavor Unit Records, remembered Apache.



“Without Apache there would have been no Queen Latifah, no Naughty By Nature, no Chill Rob G, no anything” Compere told AllHipHop.com. “Apache was the string that tied all of Flavor Unit together. Without Apache none of this would be.”



Apache's appearances included collaborations with Naughty by Nature, Fat Joe, Tupac, and A Tribe Called Quest.



“That’s my g, r.i.p in peace big homie, you will be missed, shout out to his family naughty by nature, I just did a show with them, god bless,” DJ Kid Capri said via Twitter.

(AllHipHop News) Flavor Unit emcee Apache, born Anthony Teaks, passed away today (January 22) after a protracted illness.

As an original member of Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit, Apache first appeared on 45 King Presents The Flavor Unit and his best known single “Gangsta B**ch” peaked at #11 on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles chart.

Shakim Compere, CEO and Co-Founder of Flavor Unit Records, remembered Apache.

“Without Apache there would have been no Queen Latifah, no Naughty By Nature, no Chill Rob G., no anything” Compere told AllHipHop.com. “Apache was the string that tied all of Flavor Unit together. Without Apache none of this would be.”

Apache was one of the three original rappers in Flavor Unit, which also counted Queen Latifah and Latee as early group members.

The rap crew consisted of groups or rappers like Lakim Shabazz, Lord Alibaski, Chill Rob G., Naughty By Nature, Freddie Foxxx, Nikki D and Queen Latifah.

Apache's appearances included collaborations with Naughty by Nature, Fat Joe, Tupac, and A Tribe Called Quest.

“That’s my g, r.i.p in peace big homie, you will be missed, shout out to his family naughty by nature, I just did a show with them, god bless,” DJ Kid Capri said via Twitter.

I haven't heard his only album in a long time so i forgot how it sounded. Hey Girl song on the album is tight. I remember Freddie Foxxx was in the video. I disagree with Shakim saying there wouldn't have been no Queen Latifah and Naughty By Nature without Apache. They would've gotten signed by a label regardless because of their skills. I don't understand why people say that sometimes about rappers. I remember Fat Joe saying KRS One wouldn't have gotten signed if he hadn't dissed MC Shan and Juice Crew. That's bullshit because KRS would've gotten signed by a label because of his skills.
