Naughty By Nature collaborates with Solid Gold for Daytrotter session

So here's a string of words I never thought would appear in the same sentence: Recording site Daytrotter recently invited Naughty By Nature to their Illinois studios for a session, with locals Solid Gold sitting in as their backing band.

Wait, what?

The indie-heavy site invited Solid Gold down to Rock Island back in December to open for Naughty By Nature at a benefit concert for United Way. Prior to the benefit show, the two groups went into the studio, cracked open a bottle of Hennessey, and created some magic together, with Solid Gold laying down what Daytrotter describes as a "soulful, dark night rock groove" underneath the rap duo's freestyles.

"Soo here's one of the weirdest things I've ever done," Drew Christopherson, Solid Gold's new drummer, tweeted this morning.
