Synopsis

Amazon.com
To qualify as a classic, a rap album must be solid from start to finish, containing no fillers, all thrillers. The musical production should match the lyrical skills of the MCs and the artist should posses his or her own style and flavor. Naughty By Nature's self-titled debut can rightfully be called timeless. When it dropped in 1991, the global hip-hop community took notice, and its stature stands years later. Featured here is the sing-along club classic "O.P.P." Queen Latifah spices up "Wickedest Man Alive" while Lakim Shabazz guests on the Luis "Louie Louie" Vega-produced "1,2,3." This collection of bouncy beats and powerful rhymes is a must-have for lovers of East Coast hip-hop. --Shane Hunt

"This CD has it all from the pumping beats of Uptown Anthem to the lighter side in OPP. Not to mention everything in between is pure butta baby."
A must have!!

"This is the NBN I used to listen all the time. This cd is a classic, at that time they were hungry 4 props,Treach's spit-fire delivery along with Vinny punch lines set a trademark in the hip-hop world.Unfortunatelly, they changed a lot...their latest 2 albuns r not so goood as the previous ones...but at least in "Poverty's Paradise" you find some jewels."
Amazing on all parts of the members of this group.

"Naughty by Nature's self-titled debut is nothing but amazing. The lyrics were great. The beats were solid. And most of all all three of these MC's have flow that you wouldn't imagine. Most of the songs are amazing. The album starts of strong with Yoke the Joker. This track brings an amazing beat, flow that no one has, and the lyrics are good. The second track Wickedest Man Alive was probably one of the weaker tracks on the album, because the beat wasn't good, Queen Latifah's part, the chorus, was annoying, and I would've liked to see better lyrical display instead of calling themselves Wickedest Man Alive. So this track was forgettable. O.P.P. was a great club banger. A little soft side to Naughty by Nature, but it was is another great song and shows club songs can be good. Then my personal favorite song is on Ghetto Bastard (Everything's Gonna Be Alright). I think this is without a doubt the best song on the album because of great lyrical display, a great beat, once again the flow of these men, and most of all the passion brought to this. Following this song Let the H*'s Go. This was another amazing song. The beat is outstanding, the flow (I won't mention the flow agin because all songs on this album have great flow from each MC in the group), and the lyrics are great telling us the bad things about H*'s. Everyday All Day is a good song. Good beat, and decent lyrics. A good listen. The next song was amazing Guard Your Grill. A great up tempo beat, and good lyrics. Pin the Tail on the Donkey was decent at best. Lyrics were ok, the beat was terrible, because it was the Ice Ice Baby beat by Vanilla Ice (and anything Vanilla Ice does in rap is absolutely disgraceful.) 1,2,3 was another amazing song done by these three. Another great beat, and good lyrics. Strike a Nerve was great. The next song is pretty forgettable again. Thankx for Sleepwalking isn't good or bad. A little forgettable. And as it seems that the album is coming downhill with the last couple of tracks Uptown Anthem doesn't dissapoint. A great beat and lyrics. A great way to end an album off.

In conclusion this is a great album with many diferent good songs with a couple forgettable ones. Treach shows he is one of the best MC's from this time in rap with his amazing talent on the mic. And the beats were solid. Lyrics are good. And flow you can't describe nothing else but amazing. A classic old school rap album.


Top 5 Songs:

1. Ghetto Bastard (Everything's Gonna Be Alright.)
2. Uptown Anthem.
3. Yoke the Joker.
4. Let the H*'s Go.
5. 1,2,3.

But there are a couple of runner up's that could be in the Top 5 on this album."
