Inspired by the eccentric "funkadelia" of George Clinton's Parliament-Funkadelic,
Oakland-based crew Digital Underground, largely the brainchild of composer
Greg "Shock G" Jacobs, unleashed a reservoir of provocative humour with
Underwater Rimes (1987),
Your Life's a Cartoon" (1988), Doowutchyalike (1989),
The Humpty Dance (1990), and
on Sex Packets (1990) orchestrated it with an intelligent interplay
of samples and live instrumentation.
featuring the young Tupac Shakur,
David "DJ Fuze" Elliot and Ron "Money B" Brooks,
expanded for Sons of the P (1991), but the album was far
Elliot and Brooks also started the parallel project Raw Fusion.
The Body-Hat Syndrome (1993) was notable mainly for the revelation of
rapper Saafir The Saucee Nomad, who later debuted solo with
Boxcar Sessions (1994).
Digital Underground's joke got a little too predictable on
Future Rhythm (1996) and
Who Got the Gravy? (1998).
