Old school rap legend Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell is certainly not one to hold his tongue!
The former leader of 2 Live Crew, best known ‘booty music’ with raunchy lyrics, recently offered his take on ghostwriting, which led to him blaming the demise of hip hop to a new dating trend… ‘wifin h**s.’
Campbell says the industry has totally changed since he was in it and in a recent interview with WatchLOUD, he gives Kanye West (who famously ‘wifed’ Amber Rose then officially ‘wifed’ Kim Kardashian) props for being a “trendsetting” musical pioneer, stating:
It used to be a difference, before Kanye West, rappers wasn’t wifin’ all these h**s. Rappers would be secure with they woman. You look at Ice Cube. He’s always been with is wife. Look at Will Smith. He’s always been with her.
Hip-hop was different. We didn’t get caught up in the Hollywood thing, where, OK rappers are now marrying Hollywood girls, leaving one, going to the next one, leaving this one. We didn’t do that. I mean, we were like real secure. We wasn’t marrying girls or wifin’ girls for the Internet to blow up.
It’s totally different nowadays.

Luther Campbell aka Uncle Luke is about to get as “freaky” as he wanna be… on film!
According to a recent press release:
The Sundance Institute selected The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke, a short film starring Miami-based rapper and politician Luther Campbell (Uncle Luke of 2 Live Crew) and produced by Miami’s Borscht Corp. (the organization behind the Borscht Film Festival) in collaboration with Miami production company Rakontur for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival’s Short Film Program.
The Sundance Institute selected only 64 shorts for its Short Film Programs from a record 7,675 world-wide submissions.
Luke notes that he’s honored amongst the chosen few, stating:
“It’s an honor to have a highly respected organization such as the Sundance Film Institute recognize me and my life as an important part of American culture by adding “The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke” to their 2012 line up.”
But wait… if “Freaky Times” actually wins an award at Sundance, it will automatically qualify the film to potentially be an Oscar nominee!!
Uh Uh get it get it!!

I tried to told ya back in January of this year, but even then I thought it was a joke.
In February, Mr. “Nasty as You Wanna Be” revealed his reasons for running and his decision to include a “stripper tax” in his mayoral platform (click HERE if you missed it).
Well if we didn’t believe it before… we HAVE to believe it now.
