Old School Rap


Naughty by nature was a group formed in East Orange, New Jersey. In 1996 they won best rap album, and the title was Poverty''s Paradise. The members of the group all attended the same high school and they began performing at talent shows and were discovered by Queen Latifaha few years later. They were one of the first groups to have songs on the pop charts while still maintaining their street-level credibility among the hardcore rappers.

  2. Not a big fan of rap music but they look/sound like an interesting group. I didn't know Queen Latifaha did something besides okayish movies.

  3. This is so interesting. It's funny that the group the boys just happened to pick up on was this type of rap music. I wonder what would have happened if when they were captured the pulled cassettes out of their pockets with country music on it.

  4. I agree with you Alecia because I was wondering how did the boys get so found of this music. I am curious to know more about how the boys used to practice for it but, the book doesn't explain much.
