2livejews25thanniversary

“Oy, it’s so humid! It’s like a sauna in here!”

And for 2 Live Jews, the heat on their chart topping album As Kosher As They Wanna Be has never gone down.

It was 25 years ago, in 1990, that the group came to national attention for their parody of a parody of a parody by mocking 2 Live Crew, mocking pop music, mocking the buying public.

It’s safe to say that Eazy Irving and MC Moisha are just as relevant today, if not more so.

Ask any Jew around the world aged 26 to 62 if they remember the group, and they’ll like say, “Of course. That was hilarious.”

All one has to do is take a trip to youtube to see that the group is still racking up hits like it was the 20th century. They’ve got more eyes on their material than a bikini shiksa at the beach.

So in tribute to the great 2 Live Jews, we say thanks for all the years of entertainment!

Find the 2 Live Jews on Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, Pandora, and anywhere good music is streamed or sold.

Henry Stone’s T.K. Productions was the parent company for over 20 of his independent record labels including TK Disco, Glades, Marlin, Alston, Dade, Dash, Bold, Cat, Clouds, Weird World, and many more. T.K. Productions was also closely related to Henry Stone’s Tone Distributors, responsible for putting a significant portion of America’s independent r&b hits on store shelves in its era. T.K. Productions was the brainchild of Henry Stone who became the biggest independent record label owner in the world in the 1970s, and along with his distribution company literally sold into the hundreds of millions of records. If you’ve ever wondered how and why records actually end up on store shelves, and you follow the trail all the way up the food chain, eventually you get to Henry Stone. He was the man. He had the plan. He made the moves. He ordered the armies of  trucks, and trains full of vinyl around America as both manufacturer and distributor. He owned his own pressing plants. He had hundreds of employees. He owned a warehouse that took up an entire city block in Hialeah at 495 S.E. 10th Court 33010. Everyday the trucks would pull up to its bays and pick up and drop off wax by the tens or even hundreds of thousands. And he continued in the business of making and selling hits until his death in 2014. It’s a truly American story of hustle, drive, determination, ambition, skill, talent, luck, and music, music, music. Get your official T.K. Productions t-shirt today. (additional postal charge for orders outside continental U.S.)
