Funkmaster George Clinton Has Got His Groove Back

Posted by Fara Kearnes on June 9, 2005 7:57 PM |

George Clinton picThis man is the bomb. George Clinton, the funk master who makes such great music and got ripped off by modern artists and given no credit, is getting his music and 'spect back. Justice is decades overdue.

A federal judge in Los Angeles has issued a decision that returns ownership of the master recordings of four of George Clinton's albums: "One Nation Under a Groove," "Hardcore Jollies," "Uncle Jam Wants You" and "The Electric Spanking of War Babies."

According to an article on allhiphop.com, in winning possession of the recordings Clinton can now control distribution of the music and lay claim to millions of dollars in past licensing fees from record labels whose artists lifted samples, or snippets, from Clinton albums while recording new music. , Every generation since the 1970s has discovered P-Funk via rap and hip-hop records that heavily sampled Clinton's work. In fact, Clinton is second only to James Brown as the most heavily sampled artist. Some of the rappers who have incorporated material from his albums include: DJ Quik, Dr Dre, EPMD, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Steady B., Jeru tha Damaja, XClan, Too $hort, De La Soul, Geto Boys, Paris, Snoop Dogg, Tone Loc, Yo-Yo, Eric B. & Rakim, Slick Rick, etc.

The founder of Parliament and Funkadelic, Dr. Funkenstein will release the two-disc "How Late Do U Have 2BB4UR Absent?" on August 23rd. As for his upcoming summer tour, look for fellow musicians to drop by, such as Flea, Big Boi, Snoop, Redman, Flavor Flav, Chuck D., Gwen Stefani, Lenny Kravitz, Fishbone, Black Eyed Peas, and the Roots. Don't miss the tour and the chance to reintroduce yourself to a mindblowing brew of funk, soul and psychedelia. Go. Listen. Learn.
