Reviews:

''As Nasty As They Wanna Be'' is 2 Live Crew's third album which was released in 1989. This album became their largest seller, going 2x Platinum. In 1990, a Florida court ruled the album as legally obscene and therefore banned from sale; this ruling was later overturned by the Supreme Court. It is the first album in history to be deemed legally obscene.

It would also be the final album to be released under the Skyywalker Records label. Following a successful lawsuit against Luther Campbell and Skyywalker Records by ''Star Wars'' creator and director George Lucas, the company was forced to change its name to Luke Records.

The album is broken down track-by-track by Luke and Mr. Mixx in Brian Coleman's book ''Check the Technique''.

The album cover and imagery of the record was recently used in the music video of the song Rabbit by Swedish band Miike Snow. - Wikipedia
