PARK CITY, Utah – The rap group that created controversy in the early 1990s with songs like “Me So Horny” is reuniting and hitting the road.

Luther Campbell said Saturday that 2 Live Crew is back together and will tour this summer.

The rapper and producer made the announcement at the Sundance Film Festival, where he is promoting his appearance in the short film “The Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke.”

Campbell, 51, describes the offbeat film as “an art piece” that he did to help young filmmakers who were inspired by his hip-hop work. But his mind was on getting back with the old crew.

“I just can’t wait to just start practicing,” he said. “That’s going to be a blast.”

So will they be “As Nasty As They Wanna Be” (the title of the group’s 1989 album that a judge deemed obscene, a ruling later overturned by the United States Court of Appeals)?

Not really, Campbell said.

“We’re going to perform the songs and everybody’s going to be excited,” he said. “Some of the older people of our generation will be able to tell their kids, ‘You’re staying home tonight, we’re going to see 2 Live Crew and shake our booty!’ ”
