Although Luther Campbell is long gone, 2 Live Crew remain the same, turning out the same lewd rhymes and bass-heavy grooves as they did in the eight-six. Which means, of course, that The Real One may indeed satisfy some fans of the group, since it delivers what the Crew always delivers, yet some longtime listeners will have to admit that the porn-rap schtick ran out of steam long ago. Nevertheless, there's a handful of cuts that have a strong enough groove to satisfy the needs of hardcore fans who just want to hear some new material from their favorite groups.
