Rap Group Naughty By Nature Are Planning To Celebrate Their 25th Anniversary By Hitting The Road With An Album And Tour Financially Supported By Fans.
The band has launched a Kickstarter.com crowd funding campaign to help them finance a comeback.
Explaining the initiative on Thursday (28Jan16), rapper Treach explained, "We're in the hip-hop genre, where the majority of the veteran artists don't get support from record labels. So you don't hear music from many legends in the game.
"Our fans worldwide kept letting us know that they miss our era of music. We launched this Kickstarter so there would be a platform to grant them their wish of hearing new Naughty By Nature songs and seeing new Naughty By Nature videos."
Bobby Brown Is Determined To Fulfil Commitments To Perform In Australia Next Month (May15) After Cancelling Shows Earlier This Year (15) So He Could Be By His Daughter's Bedside As She Fought For Life In An Atlanta, Georgia Hospital.

The concerts were rescheduled after Brown scrapped dates last month (Mar15) after his daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was hospitalised following a near-drowning incident at her home in Roswell, Georgia.

Rapper Treach is urging U.S. government officials to allocate more funding to youth programs to help keep at-risk youngsters off the streets and out of trouble.
The Naughty by Nature hitmaker is convinced many teens turn to a life of drugs and crime simply because they don't have a healthy outlet, like arts or sports, to channel their energy.
And he wants officials to focus on preventative measures for impressionable kids.
He tells U.S. magazine Sister 2 Sister, "Where's the money for all the programs? Now, man, in the street, it's (sic) nothing for these kids to do... All that gang prevention should be trips out of the neighbourhood. Having different gangs together playing. I had a basketball league where it was rival gang members playing on the same basketball team. It's hard to kill somebody once you break bread with them. You just gonna lock everybody up? No, it's things you can do before it gets that serious."
