It was a great fortune to not only see The Roots perform on Saturday at Festival Pier but also the Grammy-winning crew from Naughty By Nature. It’s hard to believe it even happened at all. Luckily it did.

Audience members of all ages couldn’t hold back their excitement as Treach and Vin Rock walked on to the stage in a nonchalant manner.

O.P.P.” and “Hip Hop Hooray” backed by The Roots created a truly unique and never-before-seen experience. Both songs were nominated for Grammy’s in the early ’90s but on Saturday, they felt like a whole new songs.

Moms and dads held their children on their shoulders, bridging the gap between Naughty by Nature fans from then and now. The collaboration will go down in the books as one of the best things Naughty by Nature and The Roots have done, maybe even legendary.
