2 Live Crew Tickets - The Original Gangster RappersAnd, boy, were they the originals -- forget N.W.A., forget Public Enemy, forget the Wu Tang Klan, even forget Bone Thugs n' Harmony. Any other rap group never measured up to the controversy that was the 2 Live Crew. Made up of Luke, Fresh Kid Ice, Mr. Mixx, and later on in 1994 new rapper Verb (born Larry Dobson), they took the rap world by storm in a big way, charging up their lyrics and burning up the First Amendment so much that there was political debate about it. Nothing -- not one thing, though -- could stop them from being as popular as they were.
2 Live Crew Tickets - The Music of the 2 Live Crew. It was their 1989 album As Nasty as They Wanna Be that propelled them to the top of the controversy chart, making rap music a massive target for censorship. In 1994, the 2 Live Crew came back after a whole lot of heated debate to issue out another album entitled Back at Your Ass for the Nine-4, again finding themselves back in court for the same reasons: obscene lyrics, and also plagiarism! Nevertheless, the case went in favor of the Crew, and they kept on trucking with their rap music. Rightly so -- because they were indeed like pioneers of the rap industry.
2 Live Crew Tickets - The Sound of the 2 Live CrewIt was this Crew that made it possible to put the popular Miami bass sound into the forefront, people upping the volumes and super-charging the bass to the point where you could do nothing but shake your booty! And that's what they called it -- 'booty rap.' It was a dance-oriented style of rap that relied on the up-tempo grooves and simple chant styles.
