22. Naughty by Nature "O.P.P." (1991)
Album: Naughty by Nature
Producer: Naughty by Nature
Label: Tommy Boy Records
This was the hit that put the Flavor Unit's rough and rugged trio on the map before they started chanting "Hip Hop Hooray." At first they tried to play coy about the song's title, claiming that the abbreviation stood for "Other People's Property," but if you check Treach's rapid-fire lyrics there is no doubt what he's really talking about. "O is for Other, P is for People, scratchin' temple/The last P, well that's not that simple/It's sorta like another way to call a cat a kitten..." (Any BDP fan should know what "The P" stands for, but we digress.) And if there were any remaining doubts, those would be cleared up by the line about how "There's no room for relationships/There's just room to hit it." Now you know why these guys were called naughty.
