Being icons isn’t easy, say Naughty By Nature, who dropped some of the biggest party anthems of the 90s, were dropped by their label, then dropped off the commercial radar. “They think it’s all glamour, all lifestyle but it’s a real hard job.” This is what founding member Vinnie Brown now warns schoolkids, part of a voluntary community service he undertook in the quieter moments of the hip-hop group’s career. “If you think going to school and getting a form of training is not going to help you, then even if you come up on success you have to know what to do with this money,” he told the New Zealand Herald. “Don’t think what we do is some kind of shortcut.”

Don Zulaica of LiveDaily.com spoke with Naughty by Nature’s Vinnie Brown for his thoughts on the troubles they had with Tommy Boy and later Arista. Now with TVT, Brown said, “Once [Kay Gee] quit, we were like, ‘All right, well, we’ve got a gold single, gold album on Arista. Maybe we can move forward.’ And when it came down to it, they were like, ‘We’re no longer interested.’ So we took it as, ‘Okay, you must have thought, since Kay Gee was the producer, that he was the group.’ And we went on from there.”
