Former 2 Live Crew rapper Luther Campbell faces a felony charge after police said he led a sexually charged performance at a South Carolina nightclub. An arrest warrant was issued yesterday (March 5) for the 42-year-old Florida-based rapper on a charge of presenting or participating in an obscene performance.

The October show reportedly featured naked people on stage at the End Zone nightclub in North Charleston. "That might go over in South Beach or wherever he's from, but it's not going to fly in Dorchester County," prosecutor Walter Bailey said.

Police began their investigation the day after Campbell's show, when a 23-year-old woman reported she was dragged onto the stage, stripped naked, and sexually assaulted. After reviewing videotapes of the performance, police determined the woman had been a willing participant and charged her with filing a false police report.

It's unclear when or how the warrant will be served if Campbell doesn't surrender to police. Campbell's spokesperson said the rapper had no immediate comment on the charge.
