The 2 Live Crew is an American hip-hop group from Miami, Florida, although seen as a main fixture in the Miami hip-hop scene, they actually got their start in California and was created by DJ Mr. Mixx (David Hobbs) with fellow rappers Fresh Kid Ice (Chris Wong Won), and Amazing Vee (Yuri Vielot). The group caused considerable controversy in the late 80's particularly on their 1989 album As Nasty As They Wanna Be, which caused controversy with sexual lyrics and themes, to the point that the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida ruled that the album was legally obscene.
