Digital Underground's biggest hit is "The Humpty Dance
," which features a character devised by the group's leader Shock G called Humpty Hump. After that song became the breakout hit from their first album, Sex Packets
, their label, Tommy Boy, wanted more Humpty material on the followup album, Sons of the P
. Shock G gave them Humpty on "No Nose Job
," but the label wanted more.
Originally, this song was Humpty-free, but Shock agreed to insert him into the track, so he built in an interlude where Humpty disrupts the song, trying to turn it from tender to tawdry ("If you hold my nuts...") before Shock G cuts him off.
This version, which runs 6:11, was included on the album. The single, which runs 4:25, omits the Humpty part.
