Video: 2 Live Crew’s “Banned in the USA”

Here is the old fashioned moralist coming out in me, but making a video comparing having your album banned in certain US counties is a bit different than the Civil Rights movements, the Jim Crow era, the Kent State Massacre, and all of the other video footage 2 Live threw into the mix to show how their controversy was just as important. I might have been more willing to give in to the rhetoric if it had been Ice Cube, Rakim or any rapper or crew who actually made good hip hop records, but 2 Live is ultimately a one trick pony. You’ve heard one song, you’ve just about heard them all.
