O.P.P.

Naughty By Nature scored their first big hit in 1991 with "O.P.P.," a hip-hop anthem that sampled the Jackson 5 and coined a phrase that became ubiquitous in pop culture. While the meaning of the last "P" may be open to interpretation, the song title was inspired by a drug dealer that lead rapper Treach knew growing up. "He said he was down with 'O.P.M.' –other people’s money," he said. "I started playing around with that, like, 'You keep the money, I’ll take the girl.' It turned from a joke into slang."
