"Digital Underground was an American Hip Hop group formed in Oakland, California in 1987. The group was composed of the late Shock G, along with Money-B and DJ Fuze, with various other members joining and leaving throughout their careers (2Pac started out with DU). They were known for their innovative and playful approach to Hip Hop, which included a blend of funk, jazz, and soul music.
Their debut album, Sex Packets, was released in 1990 and was a critical and commercial success. Sex Packets is not your average Hip Hop album. It’s a concept album that tells the story of a new drug called G.S.R.A. (Genetic Suppression Relief Antidotes). This pill, which comes in a condom-sized package and glows in the dark, promises to provide users with the ultimate sexual experience – perfect for astronauts who need to keep their heads in the game, even in the most challenging of environments. The concept is hilarious and inventive, and Digital Underground explores it in a variety of ways throughout the album. Tracks like “Packet Man” and “Packet Reprise” dive deeper into the world of G.S.R.A. and its effects, while songs like “Doowutchyalike” and “Freaks of the Industry” celebrate sexual freedom and exploration more broadly.
The album’s concept might sound silly, but it’s actually quite clever. Digital Underground uses humor and satire to comment on a range of topics, from government control to sexual repression. The result is an album that’s not just fun to listen to, but also thought-provoking and insightful."
