Show O' The Eve... Naughty By Nature (NXN) In Brooklyn
While there are few songs from the early '90... meh, eff this- there are ONLY songs from the early 90s I like, and everything else is fodder for car commercials. So in between my rambunctious vocal stylings of Technotronic, CeCe Peniston, and Snap I sometimes like to give the one-man-party a thick delicious coat of Naughty By Nature - maybe O.P.P., maybe Ghetto Bastard, maybe Feel Me Flow, maybe even a little Uptown Anthem for good measure. Sure, it could be raining pretty hard, you're late for work, and you're sandwiched on the B67 bus next to an elderly woman playing Handheld Tiger Electronic Football and a guy that smells like a hot dog wearing a dogshit wedding dress, but Naughty By Nature is sure to liven up the morning spirits. Moreover Naughty By Nature is one of the only hip-hop acts that achieved massive mainstream success without defaulting on their street-cred. Also, these guys trumped Sid Vicious by wearing an even bigger lock around their necks- no luggage lock for these East Orange MCs, but a masterlock, the kind you'd lock your toolshed with so meth addicts wouldn't steal your belt sander.
They're playing at Southpaw in Brooklyn and it's a Women-In-Prison benefit though it probably will have very little to do with the movie Canned Heat. Have fun anyway!
