iTunes Review

With the follow-up to 1991’s massively successful Naughty By Nature, this New Jersey rap trio accomplished a nearly impossible feat. They refused to pander to their mainstream audience, came out with a harder, heavier piece of work, and against all odds, made it the best-selling album of their career. “Hip Hop Hooray” is the rejoinder to “O.P.P.” but it’s a stronger song in every way — less pretty, less nice, but no less catchy or accessible. The rest of 19 Naughty III knocks like a bat in the back of the head. Naughty could have easily made a pop-rap album and raked in the cash, but instead they built something for the diehard rap fans. “Hot Potato,” “Daddy Was a Street Corner,” “Take It To Ya Face” and “Ready for Dem” are definitive New Jersey rap songs, as hard and cold and gritty as the winter sidewalks in East Orange. Lots of groups talk about “keeping it real,” but this album embodies the idea. Treach summarizes the prevailing attitude in the tersely titled “The Hood Comes First”: “If radio can’t flow ‘cause there’s no goody-good verse, tell ‘em the hoody hood comes first.”

Customer Reviews

One of my 10 best Hip-Hop albums of all time.......

Yezzir!!! Treach was the hottest emcee coming out of the East Coast at one point and time. One of the most lyrical songs I've ever heard is Hot Potato with Freddie Foxx. The lyrics are intense and the beat production matches the energy of the track.... Hip Hop Hooray is one of Raps best anthems ever but best believe this album doesn't stop there.. It goes much deeper than that... Heavy D brings it on Ready for Dem and the Rotten Rascals blaze Knock Em out da Box.... download and enjoy a healthy serving of some true old school hip-hop that still bangs in the I-pod even today


Songs like this made the foundation for rap.

Don't forget It's On

"It's On" is classic Naughty By Nature. It was definitely an underrated crowd pleaser.


Formed: 1991 in East Orange, NJ

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Naughty by Nature pulled off the neat trick of landing big, instantly catchy anthems on the pop charts while maintaining their street-level credibility among the hardcore rap faithful; one of the first groups to successfully perform such a balancing act. The group was formed in East Orange, NJ, in 1986, while all three members -- MCs Treach (born Anthony Criss) and Vinnie (born Vincent Brown), and DJ Kay Gee (born Keir Gist) -- were attending the same high school. Initially called New Style, they...
