Happy birthday Uncle Luke

Luther Campbell

Happy birthday, Uncle Luke! This Miami native was one of the original Southern rappers of the 1990s, leading 2 Live Crew towards that rap style after joining the group in its formative days. The hip hop legend and 2 Live Crew were sued for unauthorized use of Roy Orbison’s “Oh, Pretty Woman” for one of their song parodies; the case ultimately went all the way to the Supreme Court.

Recently, the label owner and promoter teamed up with the premium condom Brand B Condoms in 2013 to make a donation to Miami non-profit groups that supported underserved communities.
