Editorial Reviews

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

Okay, let me point out two things before I get started:

1) The reviewer below me (Amparo Acosta) totally plagiarized the review of this album from writer Stanton Swihart (the review can be found on that website).

2) I'm not sure if this album was rereleased with "Uptown Anthem" added to it, but my copy doesn't have that song and I bought this album the very day that it hit stores back in '91. I had to buy the soundtrack to Juice in order to get that track (the classics on that joint made it worth it anyway, but back to the album).

Anyway, Naughty By Nature's self titled debut and Queen Latifah's Nature Of A Sista LPs were the first albums I ever purchased on CD. Up until that point, I was buying records and tapes because I couldn't afford a CD player and my mom wasn't going to buy one for me. I eventually saved up and bought one, but I digress. When I first popped this album in, I immediately noticed how tight of an MC Treach was (Eminem openly gives him a good amount of credit for being one of the blueprints used for his own particular style). The best word I've heard used to describe his flow is "nimble". Treach could bounce from track to track and ride any beat with what seemed like no effort at all. The production is credited to Naughty By Nature, but I'm guessing the bulk of that fell on the shoulders of Kay Gee (the guy behind hits for Zhane, Next, Jaheim, Koffee Brown, and many others -- you've probably been dancing to his beats for the past 7 years and didn't even know it). Also, those looking for Vinnie to shine should look for later releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Down Wit OPP..yeah you know me February 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I first got in NBN after hearing 'Pin the Tail on the Donkey' and 'OPP' so i decided to cop there debut and from Toke the Joker to Uptown Anthem this is a tight album. NBN made this gem in 1991 and this is underated by people-i'm the only one who's heard of them out of anyone I know. It made a hit over OPP (y'all know what it means-if ya dont then listen to da song dumazz) Also Pin the tail on the donkey is tight, Wickedest man Alive is also, and on Everything's gonna be alright Treach tells of his childhood and how he was really poor and didn't have a dad and it is a good song, also 123, Uptown Anthem and Guard your grill are dope, well the whole album is!. Check this album for some tight NJ hip hop.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ol' School July 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I actually like Naughty by Nature. From the Jackson 5 sample in "OPP" to the entertaining "Yoke the Joker". If you like guys like Yung Joc, TI, and 50 Cent, dont waste your money on it. But if your into old school rap, Naughty by Nature is for you

Top 5

1. OPP

2. Everything's Gonna Be Alright

3. Yoke the Joker

4. Wickedest man Alive

5. Let the Hoes Go

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST ONE NAUGHTY BY NATURE DID IN MY OPINION February 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD
to me, the this debut album was their finest. it was as raw as it was mellow. i like them better when they are no holds barred raw. my faves on here are YOKE THE JOKER, GUARD YOUR GRILL, EVERYDAY ALL DAY, STRIKE A NERVE (because vin rhymes on it), GHETTO BASTARD, and UPTOWN ANTHEM (which was not on the original album that i bought on cassette.....oh, and vin rhymes on it). now POVERTY'S PARADISE was nice, but it did not move me like this one. this one showed a hunger that the others did not. i love it when the driving force is full of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!! June 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

I have to agree with the editor and his reasons why this is a classic album. Naughty by Nature put it down on their first album for sure. Trench was da man when he first came on the scene and Vinnie was a good sidekick who gave you quality verses. I know O.P.P was the standout track, but i favorite was Uptown Anthem. After that, i'd have to say O.P.P, Yoke The Joker, and Guard Your Grill came after that as personal favorites. Overall, it was a very good debut with very little flaws.

5.0 out of 5 stars This iz da ONE!! January 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you call yourself a true Hip-Hop follower, your CD collection is no where near complete without a copy of this album. The beats on this CD are some of the best. Treach put himself out there as one of the top MC's right from the start. So if you ain't got it.....GET IT!!!
