Uncle Luke a.k.a. Luke Skyywalker wins “I AM HIP HOP” award !!!
Luther Roderick Campbell (born December 22, 1960), also known as Luke Skyywalker and simply Luke, is an American record label owner, rap performer, promoter, and actor. He is best known as a one-time member and leader of rap group 2 Live Crew, and star of his own short-lived show on VH1, Luke’s Parental Advisory. As a result of one of the group’s songs, which used a parody of Roy Orbison‘s “Oh, Pretty Woman“, Campbell was party to Campbell v. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc., which was argued in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Miami New Times described Campbell as “the man whose booty-shaking madness once made the U.S. Supreme Court stand up for free speech”.
