Make no bones about it, Naughty By Nature has a knack of bringing street intellect to the pop charts with raw-edged but still accessible East Coast rap. Long before the bling bling of the '90s ushered in a new era, Naughty By Nature stood tall atop the pack with machine-gun snares and heavy kick drums perfect for your stereo or party. While this greatest-hits compilation is nowhere as strong as 1999's Nature's Finest greatest-hits compilation, it does include selections from 2002's IIcons release (replacing cult hit "Clap Yo' Hands" in the process). Track inclusions/omissions aside, this is still a solid greatest-hits package and a wonderful testament to one of the East Coast's most lethal hip-hop groups. ~ Rob Theakston
