Hip-hop veterans Naughty by Nature - accompanied by Sway & The Wonder TwinZ - recently completed a USO tour to the Persian Gulf and what a trip it was!
This marked the second tour for trio, who entertained and met with more than 1,500 troops serving in Kuwait and Iraq in 2009. This was the first USO tour for MTV correspondent Sway Calloway, who served as emcee.
Vin Rock had this to say before leaving, “I’m excited to support our troops again by touring with the USO. We enjoyed ourselves the previous trip, learned alot and were happy we could put smiles on the troop’s faces.” And judging from Troops’ responses, the concerts were a huge hit.
Check out video footage from their first tour stop at Camp Lemonier!
