Digital Underground was a hip-hop group founded in Oakland in 1987 by Greg "Shock G" Jacobs (also known as Humpty Hump), Jimi "Chopmaster J" Dright and Kenneth "Kenny-K" Waters. At the time of signing with Tommy Boy, there were 7 members. They are arguably best known for their song "The Humpty Dance" from their 1990 album "Sex Packets", recorded at San Francisco's Hyde Street Studios. They helped launch the careers of Tupac Shakur, Hobo Junction member Saafir and singer Mystic, who were all members.
This is Opal Heights' tribute to a group that always kept things raucous, mischievous, irreverent and original.....Digital Underground.
