Hoping to raise $100,000 to fund their 25th anniversary album, Naughty By Nature has started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.
According to their profile, the Hip Hop trio are asking for monetary support because it would allow them complete creative control over the album.
The trio explained, “We’re crowdfunding to help pay for recording, mixing and mastering the EP. We also want to feature some special guests on the new album. We plan on doing some unexpected collabs with artists from different genres. Then we need to design and replicate the EP and all of the merchandise so that we can get it to you. Not to mention the cost of marketing and publicity.We are also going to be making brand new music videos. Being indie is expensive!”
Donation amounts range from $5-$10,000, with the rappers offering in return things like special edition merchandise, a shout out on social media, a basketball game with DJ Kay Gee, a private dinner with the rap group, a cameo in their next music video, a day in the studio while their album is being recorded or even your own private concert.
With 24 days to go, the campaign has over 200 backers and has raised almost $24,000. You can check out their profile on Kickstarter here.
