Treach, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee (Naughty by Nature)

Hip hop's anthem kings came together in "Illtown," also known as East Orange, NJ, in the 1980s under the name New Style, and were mentored by fellow Jersey native Queen Latifah. After a name change, the trio — now known as Naughty by Nature — achieved both success on the pop charts and credibility on the streets.
