Why they might be annoying:

    'The Humpty Dance' was their only hit in the United States.
    Money B was questioned for the shooting murder of Ronald Blackburn (2000).
    Shock G got the Humpty idea after his half brother, lounge singer 'Smooth Eddie Humphrey' suffered severe burns in the kitchen. After a water pipe main burst and struck Humphrey in the back of the head, his nose hit a deep-fry grease vat.
    Shock G gave up eating foods with sugar, but still smokes cigars.
    Radio stations and MTV censored part of 'The Humpty Dance' song, including the line 'got busy in a Burger King' bathroom.

Why they might not be annoying:

    Tupac Shakur was in the group from the late 80's until 1991, before he became a successful solo artist.
    Shock G's mother named him after Gregory Hines because she had a huge crush on Hines.
    Their 1991 album 'Sons of P' went gold.
