I'm Rick James b--

No no I'm not going there! Actually, I wanted to start up this thread because I've been really getting into funk lately. I recently purchased Rick James' album "Street Songs", and I've gotta say that I'm VERY impressed with it. There are a lot of really well written songs on it, including a few that I'm sure most people on UG know. Somebody get this man a thread!

Super Freak vid (

Give It To Me Baby vid (

Enjoy and discuss!

If you like funk you must listen to James Brown, I haven't listened to Rick James much but Super Freak is really good.

I've been listening to Rick James since I was in Diapers.

I know most of the lyrics to Fire and Desire.

If you want some crazy funk listen to Thrust by Herbie Hancock, Mike Clark on drums and Paul Jackson on bass.

There's just a preview of it.

as much as I like funk, I hate being rickrolled.

I pray that this is the same Rick we are talking about, or this was a very embarrasing post :(
