Shock G,, Frontman for Hip-Bounce Gathering Computerized Underground, Bites the dust at 57

 The gathering had a series of hits during the 1990s, including "The Humpty Dance," and presented a generally secret rapper named Tupac Shakur. 




They had that duality of being hip jump yet simultaneously entertaining, bringing the funk yet the hip bounce realness and that consistently soaked in with me. Furthermore, I was such a fan as the years progressed," said the evening drive host of 102.5 The Bone

When it comes to Shock G’s background in Tampa, Garabo was ready to talk about it on air.

“Born in Brooklyn New York, moved to Tampa — went to Greco Middle and Chamberlain High. I believe he either was asked to leave Chamberlain High, or he left on his own accord,” Garabo said during his show.

Digital Underground rose to fame in the late 80s.
It was a time when there weren’t many rap stations on the radio.

“People hear Humpty Dance, and they think it’s a novelty. But really they were deeper than that. They brought the Parliament-Funkadelic of George Clinton into the hip hop world, when at the time not a lot of people were doing that,” Garabo explained.

Over the years, Shock G helped pave the way for other artists.

“Without Digital Underground and Shock G, there’s no Tupac Shakur. He was a roadie for them, and he was a backup dancer as well. And they gave him a chance to spit on his first record,” he said.
Garabo hopes Shock G’s passing sends a message.

“Today’s a sad day and a day maybe to put our arms around the people who are still here and celebrate our legends while they’re still alive. I hope Shock and Pac are choppin’ it up there in heaven,” he said.
