Live Music Events (Feb. 3 - 7, 2016) 

Naughty by Nature
Tue. Feb. 2 | "You down with O.P.P.?" Naughty by Nature asks, as if you have a choice. Between that and "Hip Hop Hurray," no 1990s rap group made more out of two tracks. The Jersey boys reunited in 2006 and released a sixth album, Anthem Inc., in 2011. At 9 p.m. at The Maison.

Mon. Feb. 8 | The Uptown rap crew and Cash Money Records veterans transformed New Orleans hip-hop with the Mannie Fresh-produced 1996 track "Drag 'Em in the River" and its infamous beat. The group re-emerged in the late 2000s and headlines at 10 p.m. at a sure-to-be-packed Circle Bar.
