In Hip Hop History Today “2 Live Crew Members Arrested” June 9, 1990
Following the release of their third album, Nasty As They Wanna Be in 1989, a federal judge in Florida ruled that tracks off their record like “Me So Horny,” “D*ck Almighty” and “The F*ck Shop” were too obscene. The ruling made it illegal in certain counties of Florida to play or sell the album. The group was also restricted from performing the songs. On June 9, 1990 the group performed songs from their album and were arrested. Listen to 2 Live Crew Nasty As They Wanna Be above.
