The 2 Live Crew is notorious for being First Amendment poster boys. The group became the target of attacks from ring-wing groups like the Parents Music Resource Center, which slammed them as obscene. The Group feels that those critics totally missed the point of what The 2 Live Crew music is all about. Group members Brother Marquis and Fresh Kid Ice states “We make party music”.
The 2 Live Crew began in the eighties on March Air Force Base in California. The group later moved to Miami, where they hooked-up with Luther Campbell, a cook turned concert promoter. He later became the group’s hype-man. The original lineup split apart in 1992 citing irreconcilable differences.
Now The 2 Live Crew’s original MCS, Brother Marquis and Fresh Kid Ice have been in the studio and are ready to release their new album in 2012. The Album is titled “Just Wanna Be Heard” and will release in a joint venture with Lil’ Joe Records Inc.
Just Wanna Be Heard will be relevant in today’s Hip-hop. It includes tracks produced by Funk Boogie and Manny Fresh. The Album include features by E-40, Too $hort, Manny Fresh and Insane Clown Posse to name a few. The 2 Live Crew members say Don’t count us out, Yet.
