The Grammy award winning, platinum-selling hip-hop trio Naughty By Nature has launched their official 25th Anniversary Kickstarter campaign! After 25 years of collaborating with prominent artists in the industry ranging from Queen Latifah to The Roots, the super-group is ready to work directly with all their supporting fans in efforts to unleash their new record later this year. The veteran rappers have listed a variety of exclusive, limited-edition rewards for each pledge which includes signed memorabilia, dinner with Treach, Vin Rock and Kay Gee, partying on stage with Naughty By Nature during select dates of the tour, and so many more. For more information on the campaign and browse the rest of the incredible rewards, head over to Naughty By Nature’s Official 25th Anniversary Kickstarter page now, here:
In regards to kicking off the campaign, Naughty By Nature said: “What this campaign is about is just the celebration of our 25 years in the music industry. We’re inviting you to celebrate with us… Kickstarter is the sign of the times… We felt like this would be the perfect time to [release] new music but we needed the support from the fans. We wanted to see if they really wanted the new album? Now that we’re veterans, we can go directly to the fans.”
Kickstarter is the world’s largest community of people dedicated to bringing creative projects to life. – It’s a place where people come together to make new things – like films, food trucks, board games, and innovative technology. Creators (ranging anywhere from emerging to established artists) enjoy the freedom to create on their own terms and the ability to build a community of support around an idea. Backers enjoy the agency to voice the kind of culture they want to see exist and a closer connection to the creative process.
Earlier this month, the group premiered their music video for “God Is Us”! The video was shot in Los Angeles, CA with the team atItchy House Films. Fans can watch the music video featuring Queen Latifah on the group’s YouTube channel, now, here:
Additionally, Naughty By Nature is gearing up to kick off their 25th Anniversary Tour that is set to hit 26 major cities across the U.S. in 2016. After kicking off the international leg of the tour in November last year, the group will return to the states on January 28th to kick off their first show in Charlotte, NC. When asked about celebrating 25 years of their career as a trio, Naughty By Nature said:“We’re recording a new project, got that classic merchandise, we are a legendary brand and group. We put on one of the best live shows in the business, and after 25 years we are still here!”
New Jersey natives Naughty By Nature took the hip-hop scene by storm in 1989, originally calling themselves The New Style. Comprised of Vin Rock, Treach as well as DJ Kay Gee, the trio immediately garnered the attention of fellow New Jersey artistQueen Latifah, who later became their mentor. Eventually the group joined her management company, Flavor Unit Management, and additionally signed a deal with Tommy Boy Records. In 1991, they unleashed their self-titled debut album as Naughty by Nature and quickly assaulted the music charts. Since then, the group has maintained an undeniable track record — creating hits and party anthems that have become the soundtrack to our lives. The trio went on to produce follow-up albums that have become a part of America’s hip-hop legacy: 19 Naughty III, Poverty’s Paradise, Nature’s Fury and Anthem Inc..
Few hip-hop acts can boast a 25-year career as groundbreaking and influential as the ‘Kings of the Hip-Hop Anthem’. If the 90’s proved anything, it’s that we’re down with “O.P.P.” – the group’s debut single, which was one of the first rap songs to ever hit #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and dubbed one of the 100 best rap singles by The Source. VH1 presented them with a “Hip Hop Honor”alongside other prominent artists such as Rakim and Eazy E. The trio additionally won an American Music Award. Naughty By Nature has recently appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, MTV, VH1, BET Hip-Hop Awards, and has since began performing sets with The Roots, bringing a live band element to their shows for the first time in their history.
Naughty By Nature is set to release a new EP and documentary in 2016 as part of their 25th Anniversary celebration.
