George Clinton and the P-Funk All-Stars
By this point, the world’s funkiest septuagenarian has found a way to use the word “funk” to replace the other F-word in just about every circumstance imagineable. Tonight, he’ll be shining a flashlight on his funky catalog as he recites every last funking instance, and he might even have a few you haven’t heard yet. Never one to rest on his laurels, he recently released a new mixtape, Mothership: The Decatur Collection, featuring new music with rapper Aleon Craft. Besides recording, he’s lately been spending long hours reclaiming copyrights in his name (hence Mothership’s “Copyright Troll”). The message? Don’t funk with him.
