George Clinton – “Nubian Nut” (1983)

August 29, 2008 at 1:35 pm (Music, P-Funk)

George Clinton raps! This funky “rap” song is from his second solo album You Shouldn’t-Nuf Bit Fish. A bit awkward but charming.

Junie – “Rappin’ About Rappin’ (Uh-Uh-Uh)” (1981)

August 16, 2008 at 1:52 pm (Funk, P-Funk)

A funky song from 1981 by former Ohio Players & P-Funk member Junie Morrison. This was an early rap-styled song (hence the name). This is from the Junie 5 album, which Morrison performed almost entirely by himself.

Mutiny – “Voyage to the Bottom of the P” (1979)

August 16, 2008 at 1:39 pm (Funk, P-Funk)

Another great song from P-Funk spinoff Mutiny’s debut album Mutiny on the Mamaship  which was a devastating diatribe by former drummer Jerome Brailey against George Clinton’s arrogant and manipulative ways, set to a relentlessly funky backing. Clinton was so impressed with the album that he said he would have released it himself. Brailey obviously made his point.

Zapp – “More Bounce to the Ounce” (1980)

August 11, 2008 at 12:21 am (Funk, Music, P-Funk)

One of the most underrated funk groups of the 1980s, Zapp revolutionized electro computer-pop with their trademark vocoder talk boxes and bumping grooves. Bootsy Collins produced it and it certainly has some Bootsy-flavor to it. Roger Troutman had his own unique sound though – the bluesy, funky guitar he played was very influential in the years to come. Nobody sounded quite like Zapp in their prime. This was their first epic dance hit.   
This album was originally to come out on George Clinton’s Uncle Jam label but Warner Bros. stepped in and released it.

Parlet – “Help From My Friends” (1979)

Female proteges of George Clinton. This trio released a few albums in the late 70s and had some minor success on the R&B charts. This song is from their third album Play Me or Trade Me and features great drumming by co-writer Tyrone Lampkin.
