He is not an active performer anymore for already 9 years. When he was on the top of his career, he has founded the ‘Digital Underground’ band, which also included Tupac Shakur among the members. We are not sure if this band deserves to be included in the Book of Guinness records, but it has more than 35 participants of this band in the past – isn't it fantastic? They made several singles and 6 albums. They had lots of work done and have been performing for 10 years in a row, from 1988 to 1998. None of their singles reached the top and the maximum position was number 7 in the US R&B singles chart; it was 'Humpty Dance' – this piece. Humpty Dumpty is the name of the alter ego of ‘Shock G’ and it was not even close that successful as many alter egos of currently deceased David Bowie.
In the scenic activity, ‘Shock G’ has been participating with Tupac, Dr. Dre, and Prince. In 2009, it was his last tour, in Canada.
Despite the fact that he doesn't work anymore as a performer, he was still producing until 2004, and he was also as a featured artist in many songs and videos, while his latest work was done in 2015. Though for the sake of truth, it is must be stated that he wasn't active from 2010 to 2015.
The Humpty Dumpty character was created by 'Shock G' as his artificial alter ego, and there was even a background worked out especially to support this scenic legend – as if there was a guy who has allegedly burned his nose by accident in the kitchen by a fryer and since then he doesn't want to show anyone his mutilated nose and that is why he is wearing a Groucho glasses. In the Humpty Dumpty song, he makes emphasis on his own intimate proficiency, which comes in the contradiction to his ridiculous outward appearance. This is largely a parody on lots of hip-hoppers and rappers who consider themselves absolutely outstanding specimen of men. He totally understands that he is not that best example of a human being and that is why he makes fun of the representatives of the show business and specifically the group of rappers always considering themselves an elite (which is so not true).
Besides this motion picture, this song was used several times in other films like, for example, 'Dope' of 2015, the 'Green Hornet' and 'Step Up 2'. It was sampled by several people including famous ones – Justin Timberlake and Spice Girls in their original album when they just get started – and it was number one in the US Rap Charts in 1990.
