Quote:
Shock G, famous for Digital Underground's hit song "The Humpty Dance" and his work with Tupac Shakur, is dead.

The rap legend was found dead Thursday in a hotel room in Tampa ... according to his father, Edward Racker.

We're told the cause of death is unclear but there were no signs of trauma. Shock's father says authorities will conduct and autopsy.

Shock G was the lead singer for the pioneering hip hop group Digital Underground, and he gets into character as his alter ego, "Humpty Hump," for the group's famous 1989 song and dance.

Shock was also known for his collabs with 2Pac ... he's featured on Pac's 1993 song "I Get Around" and he was one of the producers on Tupac's 1991 debut solo album, "2Pacalypse Now."

In fact, Shock G helped introduce 2Pac to the music world ... Pac was a member of Digital Underground when he appeared on the group's 1991 song and music video, "Same Song," for his first published work.

Shock G was born and raised on the East Coast, but he eventually settled in Oakland, where he formed Digital Underground in the late 1980s with Chopmaster J and Kenneth Water.

In addition to his work with 2Pac, Shock G produced songs for Dr. Dre, Prince and KRS-One, just to name a few.

Shock G was 57.

All right!
Stop whatcha doin'
'cause I'm about to ruin
the image and the style that ya used to.

I look funny
but yo I'm makin' money see
so yo world I hope you're ready for me.

Now gather round
I'm the new fool in town
and my sound's laid down by the Underground.

I drink up all the Hennessey ya got on ya shelf
so just let me introduce myself

My name is Humpty, pronounced with a Umpty.
Yo ladies, oh how I like to hump thee.
And all the rappers in the top ten--please allow me to bump thee.

I'm steppin' tall, y'all,
and just like Humpty Dumpty
you're gonna fall when the stereos pump me.

...

I'm a freak
I like the girls with the boom
I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom
I'm crazy.
Allow me to amaze thee.
They say I'm ugly but it just don't faze me.
I'm still gettin' in the girls' pants
and I even got my own dance

{Chorus:}
The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
Do the Humpty Hump, come on and do the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, just watch me do the Humpty Hump
Do ya know what I'm doin', doin' the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump

...

peace and humptiness forever

Ttoday's rap is bluhluhluh garbage. Sorry if that comes across as old guy yells at clouds, but it's true. Can't even understand it, performers mumble the sh and the lyrics are turrible. Nothing at all in the way of commentary about the world save for havin/gettin money/Bs etc. I know that's a staple of rap in all its generations, but mix it up a little. Sigh. Kids today know nothing about real hip hop. They think Mark Whalberg is an actor instead of a hip hop mastermind. We know different.
