MC Sugar Ray, now known as Ray Rothchild, of the legendary 90’s rap group ‘Double X Posse’ will release the first ever, limited edition ‘Not Gon’ Be Able To Do It’ Painted Animation and Story Art NFT Collection.
The collection commissioned to Lovelight Sound Music features six pieces of artwork focused around the hit single “Not Gon’ Be Able To Do It”.
‘Double X Posse’
It was nearly impossible to be present during what’s referred to as the ‘golden era’ of hip hop without hearing someone quote the phrase “Na Baby! I’m Not Gon’ Be Able To Do It” in response to just about any question.
The smash hit single ‘Not Gon’ Be Able to Do it” written and performed by MC Sugar Ray of ‘Double X Posse’ achieved success in 1992 when it claimed the coveted number one spot on the Billboard Rap Chart. It became so iconic it was requested to be featured on an episode of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” and was the number rap video on BET, Vh1, and Yo MTV Raps.
‘Not Gon’ Be Able To Do It’ remains relevant as popular sportscaster Jalen Rose of the ‘Jalen & Jacoby’ Show on ESPN is widely known for using it as his catch phrase and the song was recently featured on “Wutang: An American Saga” in 2021.
