Add Naughty By Nature's name to the growing list of throwback hip hop acts who are trying to regain their place in the rap game. Unfortunately, the only thing I want to do with their new song "I Gotta Lotta" and its accompanying video is throw it back to wherever it came from. It's not exactly hot garbage, but it stinks despite the Method Man sample that caught my ears. But by the "I got Henny, I got sizzurp" chorus, Treach, Vin Rock and Kay Gee lost me, and by the time Treach started rapping about all his bitches, I had pretty much stopped listening and watching and went back to checking my SPAM folder. This is a disappointing return from the group that brought us the classics "O.P.P.," "Hip Hop Hooray" and "Uptown Anthem." Maybe the other songs that will appear on their new album, Anthem Inc., will be better than this downgrade.
