‘Naughty By Nature+M.O.P.: Hip-Hop Inauguration Celebration’


Hip-hop vets Naughty by Nature have teamed with hip-hop duo and self-proclaimed “underground legends” (though we won’t argue) M.O.P. to celebrate today’s inauguration of President Barack Obama. Between the two acts, they have enough tunes to befit such an occasion: Naughty’s “Hip-Hop Hooray” (natch), M.O.P.’s “Ante Up,” and Naughty’s “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” (well, sort of). Perhaps tonight’s rendition of “O.P.P.” should stand for something else, though, like “Other People’s Presidents”?
