Wonder Why

Feb 23 2021 • 1 hr 10 mins

Continuing the series of mistaken one hit wonder, this month, the Wonder Why series looks at the hip-hop group Digital Underground.  Breaking out in 1990 with the song "The Humpty Dance," it was easy to write off Digital Underground as a gimmicky rap group.  However, upon looking deeper, one finds the DU were carrying on a tradition started by funk legends P-Funk.  The success of "The Humpty Dance" led to a unique opportunity for the band as well as hoping launch the career of one of the biggest rap stars of the nineties.  A minor hit would follow a couple of years later.
