Gucci Crew II United States
The Gucci Crew II was a Miami Bass group popular between 1986 and 1994. The group was made up of MC V (aka Gucci Man) and TFS (aka 240 Shorty), along with Disco Rick, who was their DJ early on. Their first song, "Gucci Bass", was inspired by LL Cool J's "Rock the Bells", and much like Gigolo Tony's 1986 hit, utilized the Smurf's theme song as the hook. The track was produced by Amos Larkins II in late 1986, making it a regional hit in early 1987.
