June 14, 1990

JUNE14On this day in 1990, four days after being arrested for performing obscene songs at a Florida nightclub, the rap group 2 Live Crew performed at the Ozone Club outside of Atlanta.

Police had warned the group that they would be arrested if they performed their vulgar songs, so the group encouraged the crowd to sing the obscene lyrics for them, resulting in about 500 people singing, “that’s the way we like to fuck” as the police officers looked on.

No arrests were made, and the group got even more publicity and a bump in sales for the album they released a year earlier.
