The crew endured controversy due to the in-house fighting that caused the departure of Jammer, D Double E, Footsie & Monkey. Marcus Nasty attacked Jammer at Eskimo Dance, after it was claimed Jammer wasn't paying Nasty Crew members for songs produced by Jammer. The incident has been mentioned on Industry Exposure Vol. 1 & Saw It Comin' by Marcus Nasty and Jammer respectively. Marcus Nasty also slapped D Double E on stage over raves booked by D Double E under the Nasty Crew name, which in turn caused D Double E, Footsie and Monkey to leave the crew and form The Newham Generals with DJ Tubby. The departure of Kano, Ghetto and Demon has also been rumored to involve violence from Marcus Nasty, after Kano signed to 679 Recordings and switched management.
