from Miami, FL
December 22, 1960 (age 61)
The entrepreneur behind 2 Live Crew, owner of Luke Records, and former concert promoter Luther Campbell was at one time arguably the nation's most controversial hip-hop figure. Campbell formed the Miami-based quartet in 1987 and they were the centerpiece of a national campaign against allegedly obscene lyrics. He was embroiled in a volatile trial pitting him against then-Florida attorney general Jack Thompson. Campbell later became a solo artist, issuing his own discs as Luke Featuring 2 Live Crew. He released Banned in the U.S.A., a parody of Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A., and I've Got Shit on My Mind. Campbell also published an autobiography and revamped 2 Live Crew, adding some fresh members. They issued Back at Your Ass for the Nine-4, which peaked at number nine on the RB chart in 1994. Campbell also won a Supreme Court decision that ruled that his parody of Roy Orbison's Oh, Pretty Woman didn't violate the copyright held by Acuff Rose. Campbell launched the career of RB vocalists H-Town, issuing their debut LP on Luke Records. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi
