Product Description:

With its 1989 landmark album, 2 Live Crew practically single-handedly created the CD parental advisory seal and irreversibly changed the hip-hop landscape. Long before AS NASTY AS THEY WANNA BE, 2 Live Crew were drawing lawsuits and boycotts, and within the opening minute of "Me So Horny," the opening track and single, the group made it clear that, far from backing down, they were ready to push the envelope even further. Like FULL METAL JACKET, the Kubrick film from which it gets its name and central sample, the song is a massive frontal assault, a flurry of sexuality backed by an unforgettable beat. The song improbably broke into the US top 40, the album sold millions, record store clerks were arrested, an indecency case made it just shy of the Supreme Court, and a legend was born. As for the album itself, the record remains defiant, almost coyly playful and unapologetically offensive throughout--basically, the four men from Miami at the top of their game as the spirit of Rudy Rae Moore runs through tracks like "Put Her in the Buck" and "Dirty Nursery Rhymes."
