[Current Location |Detroit, MI, USA]
[Special Music |Digital Underground - The Humpty Dance]

This group promised never to bust a style that's bunk.

Judgehowyalike . . . but they kept their promise.

This group was poetry in motion.

Gregory E. Jacobs, aka Shock G.

Of the albums in my possession, Sex Packets features frequent replay.

Upon first play . . . I entered a new dimension.

Best advice . . . doowutchyalike.

They had some crazy guts.

It's the way I swing.

I like to bite.

Only a dollar or two . . . this time.

The Lyrics to "The Humpty Dance"

Verse One:

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 like to rhyme,
I like my beats funky,
I'm spunky. I like my oatmeal lumpy.
I'm sick wit dis, straight gangsta mack
but sometimes I get ridiculous
I'll eat up all your crackers and your licorice
hey yo fat girl, c'mere--are ya ticklish?
Yeah, I called ya fat.
Look at me, I'm skinny
It never stopped me from gettin' busy
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


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

Verse Two:

People say "Yo, Humpty, you're really funny lookin'"
that's all right 'cause I get things cookin'
Ya stare, ya glare, ya constantly try to compare me
but ya can't get near me
I give 'em more, see, and on the floor, B,
all the girls they adore me
Oh yes, ladies, I'm really bein' sincere
'cause in a 69 my humpty nose will tickle ya rear.
My nose is big, uh-uh I'm not ashamed
Big like a pickle, I'm still gettin' paid
I get laid by the ladies, ya know I'm in charge,
both how I'm livin' and my nose is large
I get stoopid, I shoot an arrow like Cupid,
I use a word that don't mean nothin', like looptid
I sang on Doowhutchalike, and if ya missed it,
I'm the one who said just grab 'em in the biscuits
Also told ya that I like to bite
Well, yeah, I guess it's obvious, I also like to write.
All ya had to do was give Humpty a chance
and now I'm gonna do my dance.



Oh, yeah, that's the break, y'all
Let me hear a little bit of that bass groove right here
Oh, yeah!
Now that I told ya a little bit about myself
let me tell ya a little bit about this dance
It's real easy to do--check it out
Verse Three:
First I limp to the side like my leg was broken
Shakin' and twitchin' kinda like I was smokin'
Crazy wack funky
People say ya look like M.C. Hammer on crack, Humpty
That's all right 'cause my body's in motion
It's supposed to look like a fit or a convulsion
Anyone can play this game
This is my dance, y'all, Humpty Hump's my name
No two people will do it the same
Ya got it down when ya appear to be in pain
Humpin', funkin', jumpin',
jig around, shakin' ya rump,
and when the dude a chump pump points a finger like a stump
tell him step off, I'm doin' the Hump.


Black people, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump
White people, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump
Puerto Ricans, do the Humpty Hump, just keep on doin' the hump
Samoans, do the Humpty Hump, do the Humpty Hump
Let's get stoopid!


Oh, yeah, come on and break it down


Once again, the Underground is in the house
I'd like to send a shout out to the whole world,
keep on doin' the Humpty Dance,
and to the ladies,
peace and humptiness forever

{Music and fade}

Shock G's alter ego.

Shock G has announced a "retirement," of which he sounds like he's pretty spent for cash.

The guy apparently was pretty generous in his offering of service.

I'm retiring from all forms of studio work and song writing.

My reasons for retiring are:

1. I get no satisfaction or fullfillment from it anymore. It doesn't make me happy. On the contrary, it depresses me.

Normally I'm not depressed, it's only surrounding the studio. I'm happy when I'm away from the studio.

2. Can't make a living at it. 90% of the studio work I've done in the last 6 years has all been either for free or for peanuts, and hasn't generated any income since.

3. It drives me to do drugs, cause I HATE BEING IN THE STUDIO. To much pressure & expectation for me to make/save/spark someone elses career or project.

4. I quit the studio. Fuck the studio.

5. I can't win in the studio, It's pointless, it's a "catch 22" for me, watch:

If what I do sucks, it tarnishes the legacy, hurts the family, and even lowers the price, and also leaves the artists & involved-companies unhappy;

But if what I do shines, it generates more studio work for the future, and furthur traps me in the music business, a business I have no intention of slaving to the rest of my life. I gave it 20 years. I'm done.

6. Every man has the right to the pursuit of happiness and should first try a job that he might gain happiness & fullfillment from. This doesn't make me happy anymore, it makes me miserable and a drug addict.

7. I'm done widdit. Whew!

YES, it already feels great already just to say it!!!

I most likely will try my hand at some of these:

> writing (Afeni assures me this is my true calling everytime she see's me. Maybe she's right?)

> acting

> stage performing, meaning accepting tours or positions in other bands doing keys & background vocals. (IF it's real and if the moneys good. No amatuer or free stuff anymore.)

> regular jobs in service (like clubs, hotels, TV show bands or staff, resturants, who knows?)

> ..and of course still do digital tours cause it PAYS and people don't expect me & Mon (grown men) to work for free, like all the studio requests. I'm 42 and have wants/needs/bills/responsibilities.

So there it is, spread the word, I quit.

I don't make beats, I don't do vocals, I don't write vocals, NONE OF IT.

Those of you who are friends, will be happy for me. Happy that I shook something that was making me miserable.

Those of you who had plans to "use" or manipulate me at the expense of my own health & happiness, will be upset about this. All I can say to those would be, you're free to do whatever you wish, and so am I.

I choose to QUIT.

there it is.

Thanx everybody, spread the word


I think the world needs more Shock G.

He may not care for "The Humpty Dance" as much as I do, but most stars don't care for their biggest track. It's like most things in entertainment . . . you're known for your biggest thing. If it's really big, then it's pretty difficult to be known for much else. This is part of the reason why we have one-hit wonders, although most of the one-hits are that way because they really didn't have much else going for them. Shock G was not a one-hit. He was a star.

I hope he returns to the studio, since the guy was pretty fantastic at what he did. I hope some success in acting and/or writing pushes that empty fuel tank back to overflow. He's half-man . . . half-amazing.

People get surprised at the number of hits they pumped between Sex Packets and Sons of the P.

* Humpty Dance
* The Way We Swing
* Rhymin' on the Funk
* Underwater Rimes
* The Danger Zone
* Doowutchyalike
* Sex Packets
(all above are on Sex Packets)
* Kiss You Back
* No Nose Job

Plus, "This Is an EP Release" was Tupac Shakur's debut.

These guys were money at the turn of the 90s.

Half-man, half-amazing. Great quote.

It's always hard to see a talented person shun the track that made them. It happens, like you said, often.

In Nothing But Trouble, with Chevy Chase and Dan Ackroyd, they play an amazing cover of Here Comes the Bride.

That was the best part of that film, and the song was "Tie the Knot" from the "This is an EP Release" album.

I got a small fantasy football league forming with a couple of my buddies from work. I was wondering if you and Kris would be interested in joining. It's an EA sports FFBL, which normally costs $50. However, we got free admission with the purchase of the new HEAD COACH game on PC.

Let me know if you're interested bro. You can email me at joshua.smith80@gmail.com

Some day, nobody's going to be able to tease you about your weight, and the next day, people will work to find the next thing to get you.

Will it cost 50 bucks the next year?

I'm about to look into the ESPN leagues that started last year . . . 2006 is open by that website, and I just have to figure out what the best option is as of yet.

Thanks for the insight.

As a league, it'll be $50 bucks. About $5 a team.

As far as the CHING, CHANG, CHONG leagues, you can boot my team. I'm already committed to two leagues, and anymore would cause me too much grief.

Let me know if you're interested in the future. Later.
