Naughty by Nature: ‘Anthem Inc.’ 20th Anniversary LP Done
Twenty years ago, three New Jersey wordsmiths dared to ask a question that continues to reverberate around the world: "You down with O.P.P.?"
Now, said Garden State greats -- Treach, Vin Rock and Kay Gee, better known as Naughty by Nature -- are back in action and celebrating their 20th anniversary with their first full-group album in more than a decade.
'Anthem Inc.,' a collection of brand-new joints bolstered by fresh versions of such back-in-the-day favorites as 'O.P.P.,' 'Hip-Hop Hooray' and 'Feel Me Flow,' drops Dec. 13 via the indie imprint Entertainment One.
This will be the East Orange crew's sixth album since forming in 1988. Marrying street edge with pop hooks, the group scored Top 10 hits with 'O.P.P' and 'Hip-Hop Hooray' and won the the first-ever Best Rap Album Grammy with 1995's 'Poverty's Paradise.'
