“O.P.P.” is a song by American rap group Naughty by Nature. It was released in August 1991 as the lead single from their self-titled debut album Naughty by Nature. The song was one of the first rap songs to become a pop hit when it reached number 6 in the U.S. and number 35 in the UK in 1991. Its declaration, “Down Wit’ OPP” was a popular catchphrase in the U.S. in the early 1990s. It was a hugely successful single, as Allmusic described: “There was not a bigger, more contagious crossover radio smash in the autumn of 1991 than Naughty by Nature’s ‘O.P.P.'”
