The 2 Live Crew (RAP Group) is Indicted

On this date in 1990, a Florida state court declared "As Nasty As They Wanna" be by the RAP Group "The 2 Live Crew" to be legally obscene. The ruling was later overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.

In September, the group's recording label, Luke Records, paid George Lucas $300,000 for taking the name of the Star Wars character "Luke Skywalker.” Two members of the Crew are later arrested for obscene performance after an adult-only show. They were later acquitted. All members started to pursue solo careers.
