Naughty by Nature pulled off the trick of landing big, instantly catchy anthems on the pop charts while maintaining their street-level credibility. Their self-titled debut was released in 1991 and produced an inescapable Top Ten hit in "O.P.P." Their 1993 follow-up, 19 Naughty III, produced another ubiquitous crossover smash in the "hey! ho!" chant of "Hip Hop Hooray"; the album hit the Top Five and, like its predecessor, went platinum. 1995's Poverty's Paradise was their final album for Tommy Boy; though it didn't spawn any major hits, it went on to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album. ~ Steve Huey
