Fresh's "La Di Da Di", which went against Disco Rick's wishes.
As a result, Rick left the unit to form The Dogs, and Gucci Crew suddenly found themselves without a DJ and producer.
Tensions arose as the final version of the album featured a parody of Doug E.
Their first song, "Gucci Bass", was inspired by LL Cool J's "Rock the Bells", and much like Gigolo Tony's 1986 hit, it utilized The Smurfs' theme song as the hook.
The track was produced by Amos Larkins II in late 1986, making it a regional hit in early 1987.
As a duo, Gucci Crew began work on their third album, Everybody Wants Some in 1989, utilizing Hot Productions' in-house producer, Larry Davis.
Davis had not only been a member of the highly successful disco-funk group Instant Funk, but had produced national hits for Gucci Crew's label mates L'Trimm the previous year, which led L'Trimm to a licensing deal with Atlantic Records.
