There was a time (see what we did there) when James “GodFather of Soul” Brown was just about ubiquitous, and I mean EVERYWHERE.
Pretty much every hip hop record had a JB sample on it (or how about this 4 and a half minutes dedicated to the boss by the original sample kings themselves - Double Dee & Steinski), and if not the man himself then one of his many brilliant productions.
And of course Black Caesar was still around and touring.
It was a crazy parody show, but it was still good. And sometimes Maceo even turned up to join Pee Wee Ellis.
And then it went a bit quiet…
But maybe not for long.
With this is due to open in August -
JB gets the Brother Ray treatment.
He had a good story and it should be fun(k) to watch.
And surely everyone will realise just how great THE FUNK was.
Can We Count It Off?
He’s back – watch yo’ bad self.
