4.0 out of 5 stars Its Filthy, Dirty, and pornographic..I love it February 9, 2006
By T. Gore
Format:Audio CD
The 2 live Crew decided to release "As Nasty as they wanna be" at the absolute wrong time. Congress was already making a list (Tipper Gore...ughh)of albums that they wanted to be banned, which was a total violation of 1st Ammendment rights. Needless to say, this album got released at the height of that period, and most large record retailers banned sales of the album. After lots of hearings from Musicans (even John Denver stepped in and thought is was wrong to censor music) the album was finally avaiable for sale (sticked with the infamous Parental Advisory) and I picked it up to see what all the fuss was about. Even though it might be somewhat tame by todays standards, it was dirty, yet it was good, not just because it was dirty. The 2Live Crew showed some skills, and some of the beats on this album were fantasic (had that Miami based BOOM) Time wouldnt be good to the Crew, as the the releaes got worse, and they stuck with an overuse of pornographic material that just got tired. Yet this is a really good album, which has been a bit tarnished by time, yet still another solid hip-hop effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Used to Hate This, But It Kinda Grows On You!!! March 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
OK, so I'll admit, these guys aren't really the greatest rappers. Their flow varies from unexceptional to pretty good, one guy has a very strange voice (sorry, I don't know his name) and he really doesn't sound very well suited to rap at all, and the album suffers from decidedly uh...limited subject matter. But none of it makes any difference at all, because this is still one of the most catchy, fun, playful, musically inventive, and booty-shakin' rap albums ever to come down the pike. It's no wonder that these guys were so huge in their time, and favorite targets of self-righteous evangelists and law enforcers. Anything this fun HAS to be illegal, and in Florida, until 1992, it actually was!!!

I snatched up this album just a few weeks ago, and when I first played it, I really didn't care for it at all. Certain songs were catchy (like the LEGENDARY "Me So Horny"), but it just wasn't what I was used to. The lyrics were decidedly juvenile, and as a fan of eloquent hip-hoppers like De La Soul, Public Enemy, and A Tribe Called Quest, it was a real shock to hear such earthy, nasty humor on a rap album (I was aware of their notorious rep before I bought the CD but, dang!!!). Still, I owed it to the group who set new precedents for legal sleaze on hit records to give 'em another shot, so I listened again...and again...and again...

And all at once, I realized that the Crew had grown on me. Their infectiously funky, bass-driven Miami sound is all the musical evidence that one needs to re-examine this group. Instrumentally, they don't quite sound like anybody else, especially on super fast-paced party cuts like "C'mon Babe" (my favorite song on the entire album, and a REALLY wild club track!). The hype about the lyrics really is true.

One, I have a sense of humor even about sex and toilet humor. Certainly, the content is rated R basically, but if you're an adult who can't appreciate a little base humor, I feel bad for ya.

Two, I didn't like it on first listen, but after a while, the clever use of samples of other famous songs to build the groove, and funny/catchy lyrics grew on me. To this day I find myself singing "My Seven Bizzos" in the shower sometimes, lol. "On Thursday there's Trina, her perfume lingers, she likes to suck my dizzle, my tizzle and my fingers..." Other catchy songs I got to liking are "The F*** Shop", "D*** Almighty", and "Put her in the Buck". Yup, they're dirty. Yup, they're fun. Loosen up a bit, folks.

And just recently I realized that "D*** Almighty" samples... Kraftwerk. This is because I only recently felt motivated to fill in that missing part of my junior high techno experience. That's right, among all the sampling, this is a rap CD that samples... old German techno. This would be like 50 Cent sampling the Prodigy in 2005...

I say check it out, at least the tracks I mentioned.

I loved this thing when it first came out. hard to believe it is 12 years ago. I played it to death. Had it stolen from me. It is amazing how many ways you can rap about boinking. These guys do it all. Stiff Peter!

3.0 out of 5 stars Even for rap this is bad September 29, 2005
Format:Audio CD
...so bad that it's hilarious, that is. Whoever created the actual music on this album did an okay job and has good taste; sampling more talented artists and performers such as Van Halen, Guns N' Roses, Jimi Hendrix, Beastie Boys, etc. The beats are somewhat "old" sounding; which is excuseable because this album was made in the late 80s/early 90s.

Before almost every song there's clips from movies that I think are some of the funniest parts of the album: the Vietnamese prostitute's "Oh, me so horny" from Full Metal Jacket, Richard Pryor proclaiming that "I ain't bullsh...in'!", a crowd of irate old men demanding that they abandon rap and "sing the blues!", and of course: "I know a place just down there two streets. Baby, they'll ask you no questions and give you clean sheets. HahaHAHA!"

Most of the lyrics are grotesquely pornographic and were juvenile even when we listened to this in sixth grade, yet they are hilarious at the same time. The cheesyness of the beats combined with the profanity, crudity, and retardedness of the lyrics and the way they are "rapped" by mostly talentless people who can't sing and can't even really rap makes the songs way funnier than they ought to be.

The only reason that "As Nasty As They Wanna Be" wasn't completely regulated to obscurity and forgotten was that a court in Florida declared it to be "obscene" (which I suppose it is) which inadvertantly drew everyone's attention to it. In any case, it's great comedy. It still makes me laugh. 2 stars for music, 5 for comedy.
