Naughty By Nature

Naughty By Nature

You down with Oregon WinterFest? You know Naughty By Nature is. The New Jersey hip-hop trio, which hit big in 1991 with its ubiquitous hit “O.P.P.,” will headline Saturday at the 21st annual event, which runs Friday through Sunday in the Old Mill District. Mentored by fellow New Jersey artist Queen Latifah early in its career, Naughty By Nature continued making crossover hits in the ’90s and won a Grammy for its fourth album, 1995’s “Poverty’s Paradise.” While the 2000s have seen numerous spats between members, including the departure of DJ Kay Gee, the original trio of Treach, Vin Rock and Kay Gee reunited for 2011’s comeback album “Anthem Inc.”
