Naughty by Nature to reunite
Following their triumphant Hip Hop Honors-closing performance, Naughty by Nature plans to head back to the studio to record new music for the first time since 1999. According to Billboard.com, the new album is tentatively titled Anthem Inc. and the group plans to release it independently sometime in early 2009.
Kay Gee had this to say about what fans can expect from the new album: “We’re going to make universal party tracks with great hooks; street anthems, social and political anthems, anthems for the ladies. Nothing has changed from that standpoint. But we’re not 19-20 anymore, so things will be a little different lyrically. We don’t want to make a record that sounds like we’re just trying to chase 15-year-olds. We do want to appeal to them but at the same time, we want the music to be natural and comfortable for us.”
That sounds about perfect to me. Let’s hope these legends aged better than this one.
