Naughty by Nature

Rap Group When this East Orange, NJ-based trio debuted in 1991, they had young America chanting, “You down with O.P.P.,” from their double platinum single “O.P.P.” (which stood for “Other People’s Property”). Protegés of fellow Jersey-ite Queen Latifah, rappers Treach, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee helped pushed the Garden State into the pantheon of hip hop. Throughout the 1990’s, NBN struck either platinum or gold for LPs such as 19NaughtIII and Poverty’s Paradise (for which they won a Grammy in 1996). And they would be known for creating hip hop party anthems like “Hip Hop Hurray” and “Let Me Flow.” From 1998 to 2001, NBN’s lead rhymer Treach was married to Sandra Denton  (also known as Pepa from Salt-N-Pepa). He’s also built an acting career, starring in films like Jason’s Lyric and TV shows like The Sopranos.
