Rap icons: Naughty by Nature…

As for the ladies, OPP means something gifted
The first two letters are the same but the last is something
It’s the longest, loveliest, lean- I call it the leanest
It’s another five letter word rhymin’ with cleanest and meanest
I won’t get into that, I’ll do it… ah… sorta properly
I say the last P… hmmm… stands for property
Now lady here comes a kiss, blow a kiss back to me, now tell me
Have you ever known a brother who have another like ah girl or wife
And you just had to stop and just ‘cos he look just as nice
You looked at him, he looked at you and you knew right away
That he had someone but he was gonna be yours anyway
You couldn’t be seen with him and honestly you didn’t care
‘Cause in a room behind a door no one but y’all are there
When y’all are finish, y’all can leave and only y’all would know
And then y’all could throw the skeleton bones right in the closet do’
Now don’t be shocked ‘cos if you’re down I want your hands up high
Say OPP (OPP) I like to say with pride
Now when you do it, do it well and make sure that it counts
You’re now down with a discount*

    1. Although prior to the Hulu show I wasn’t a fan. I never had any of their albums. I was aware of members Old Dirty Bastard (aka Big Baby Jesus) and Method Man because they both appeared on other hip hop records thatcI did have.

      1. It’s an incredible series, the most recent episode with RZA composing was very cool. Back in the 90’s I was into more controversial rap like 2live Crew and NWA and everyone I am showcasing in this series of drawings.
