The second album from Miami’s rap group, The 2 Live Crew, was ‘Move Somethin’ and it spawned the first single from the group to crack any of Billboard’s major charts. “Do Wah Diddy” sampled from Manfred Mann’s “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” and turned the lyrics of the original into a bawdy rap. This 12” features remixed X-Rated and Radio versions of the song along with a non-album cut called “I Can’t Go For That” which is a heavily sampled and scratched up version of Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)”.
