Naughty by Nature Returns to Tommy Boy Records for New EP
Naughty by Nature released their last album, ‘Ilcons,’ in 2002, but the trio has finally put their differences aside to reunite for a new project. The hip-hop icons have also inked a new distribution deal with their former record label Tommy Boy Records to release an EP via their Illtown Records. The EP includes two tracks from their upcoming album ‘Anthem, Inc’ titled ‘Get to Know Me Better’ featuring Pitbull and ‘I Gotta Lotta.’
Naughty by Nature first joined forces with Tommy Boy Records in 1991 and released three albums with the label. Excited about the new partnership Tommy Boy Founder and CEO Tom Silverman said, “The idea of Naughty by Nature coming back to Tommy Boy is not exciting just because they broke here, but because they are one of the few classic hip-hop artists that have remained vibrant and relevant over the years and on stage, they are absolute rock stars.”
Naughty by Nature group member Kay Gee also adds, “When we started in 1991, Tom Silverman and Tommy Boy were a great fit to lead us thru the indie industry. Now in 2010, with the ever-changing record industry, Tom is one of the leaders shaping new technology and is at the forefront of today’s new music business model. It only makes sense for us to reunite for this EP. Besides, nobody know our brand better than Tommy Boy! They helped us build it.”
The EP featuring ‘Get to Know Me Better’ and ‘I Gotta Lotta’ is available for download via iTunes and other digital retailers.
