    This is so damn frustrating! I always had hopes that he might come back with something dope. THE most underrated producer in rap and one of it‘s most unique and iconic characters!

    RIP Shock G

    Who else could do a song like this without making it sound corny?...



    From his Fear of a Mixed Planet



    Love this Saafir song just because of Shock G beat (didnīt even know there was a video with Ice-T in it...)

    I hope DWG can all agree that Shock G is up there with George Clinton, Prince and James Brown as a legendary genius of the Funk.

    I'm not sure why such a virtuoso was so unsung. He was a larger than life persona but at the same time kind of chilled in the background or disguised himself in character.

    If you don't love this song I think you might be dead inside.

    2Pac - I Get Around



    Saw Count Bass D discussing this track and how Shock G freaked this beat with the lovely piano chord progressions. You can really hear his influence on Count Bass on this song.

    devastated to wake up to this news

    Digital Underground were so influential to a young hip hopper, realising that it wasn't all JB samples and hard faced posturing, especially from the west coast point of view.

    i definitely agree with you Bob, he was a true musical genius, virtuoso and legend of the funk!

    RIP Shock G/Humpty Hump/Greg Jacobs

    Another icon from our youth passes on, R.I.P. Shock G !

    Seems we are getting to an age when our heroes start to die although this was another case of someone going when they are far too young.

    Spinning the Body Hat Syndrome. Super solid LP I should play more often, the scratching is great on here.

    Doo Woo You - Crossover with the Bay Appreciation thread, early Saafir appearance.



    Return of the Crazy One - rest well Humpty you crazy bastard.

    Sex Packets was one of the albums that got me into hip-hop... I think their legacy suffered a little from their commercial success and as such they aren't remembered with the same fondness as 'underground' groups, which is a shame as they never crossed over, they just made music that was so funky it was hard not to like! Naughty By Nature I think are tarnished with the same 'commercial' brush to a certain degree... there aren't that many rap songs that can be played at a wedding and everyone knows the words but yet are still revered by hardcore rap fans... 'Humpty Dance' is definitely one of them!
