March 26th – Digital Underground release their classic debut album, “Sex Packets”, on Tommy Boy Records, on this day in 1990.

The group’s leader and founder Shock G also used an album alter-ego called Humpty Hump, a la P-Funk.

“Sex Packets” had smash hits with the songs “Doowatchyalike” and “The Humpty Dance”, the latter sampling from P-Funk and Sly And The Family Stone.

“The Humpty Dance” itself was sampled over 25 times from artists ranging from Public Enemy, BWP, Da Lench Mob and Redman as well as The Spice Girls, Joe Public and Aaron Hall.
