That dick stays in the picture

Gram Ponante
Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell is releasing a three-CD audiobook entitled My Life & Freaky Times.

Campbell is best known for leading the group 2 Live Crew to multiplatinum sales based not on the quality of the record but the controversy surrounding the lyrics.

I bought that record in 1989 (when I was 4). Here is a sample lyric:

"That dick! Is a motherfucker I won't get pussy-whipped by a dick sucker. That dick! Is a greedy bitch's dinner I let a bitch feed before I go up in her."

Awesome. "I let a bitch feed."

The album, As Nasty As They Wanna Be, spawned protests and an obscenity case. Videos for the album (including "Me So Horny") featured booty-shaking hoochies on South Beach. Campbell is credited by no less a personage than MTV co-founder Les Garland as being one of the originators of this problem.

"Today nearly every rapper follows his model,” Garland said.

Like Robert Evans' The Kid Stays in the Picture, which gained popularity as an audiobook, Campbell's My Life & Freaky Times will detail his experiences with rap music, sex, business, law, and politics.

Campbell, who originally called himself Luke Skyywalker, now goes by the name "Uncle Luke". Considering that many porn stars get into the business as a result of experiences with their uncles, the name change is appropriate.

I look forward to rolling down Slauson in my 6-4 cranking Uncle Luke - My Life & Freaky Times with my system up. The accompanying soundtrack features Petey Pablo, Jacki-O, Pitbull, Dirtbag, Big Tigger, and Trick Daddy.
