Naughty By Nature

  • Taste of Madison 93.1 Jamz Stage 1 East Washington Avenue Madison, WI United States (map)

Leave it to Taste Of Madison to wait until the last possible second to announce a giant headliner. This year the dubious food festival's 93.1 Jamz stage will be graced by East Orange, New Jersey hip-hop trio Naughty By Nature. Probably best known for infectious and anthemic singles like 1991's "O.P.P." from their eponymous debut album and 1993's "Hip Hop Hooray" from 19 Naughty III, Naughty By Nature were early to the crossroads of gangsta rap and pop music, blending dirty, break-heavy production, cautionary street lyrics, and massive party hooks. It's been six years since Anthem Inc., Naughty By Nature's latest outing, was released. Member Vin Rock has been both fired and rehired in the time that's passed, and a new album doesn't feel very likely, so I strongly doubt this lineup will be active too much longer. —Joel Shanahan
