CASINO NOVA SCOTIA
NAUGHTY BY NATURE
LIVE AT THE SCHOONER SHOWROOM
THURSDAY, AUGUST 17TH
Halifax, NS – YOU DOWN WIT O.P.P.?” “HIPHOP HOORAY!… HO!… HEEEEYYYY!… HO!” The HipHop Anthem?… Naughty By Nature invented it! Casino Nova Scotia is excited to announce Naughty By Nature performing live in the Schooner Showroom August 17th, for a one night only appearance.
The Grammy Award winning, Platinum-album selling, New Jersey super-group, Naughty By Nature, has nearly a twenty-year track record of creating the hits and party anthems that have become the soundtrack to our lives. Their music has smashed through mainstream barriers all while remaining true to the sound, message and grit of the hood. And now, these three kings of the HipHop anthem have formally claimed their titles and named their forthcoming reunion album, “Anthem Inc.” in celebration.
Few groups in music can boast a near twenty-year career that has been both consistent and history making. Naughty By Nature, the Grammy and American Music Award winning rap trio, initially called “New Style”, began performing at talent shows and were discovered by fellow New Jersey native and then-emerging HipHop artist, Queen Latifah. Eventually signing the group to her management company “Flavor Unit Management”, Latifah helped them land a deal with Tommy Boy Records.
Naughty By Nature’s self-titled debut album was released in 1991 and quickly assaulted the music charts with the instant classic #1 hit “O.P.P.”. The group quickly became crossover stars, while maintaining their ghetto sensibility. To date, their success and longevity as a HipHop group has been unparalleled. These three “Kings of The HipHop Anthem” went on to produce their follow-up albums that have become part of America’s HipHop legacy: “19 Naughty III”, “Poverty’s Paradise“ and “Nature’s Fury”.
Inevitably, a break-up in 1999 would lead to the group members each following different, yet equally successful, personal endeavors.
Fast forward to 2008… After years of steady touring and itching to get back in the studio, both Treach and Vin agreed, that in order for the next album to have that authentic sound and feel of Naughty By Nature, they must reunite with DJ Kay Gee. At this same time, VH1 bestowed their coveted “HipHop Honor” to the group as innovators of our culture. Joining the ranks of Big Daddy Kane, Rakim and Eazy E., the group received their “HipHop Honors” in October of 2008.
The group continues to tour globally, ripping stages from Australia to Canada and New Jersey to South Africa. Naughty By Nature is on their A-game and have no plans to stop anytime soon.
