Bootsy Collins ft. Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg & Chuck D - Hip-Hop @ Funk U

Posted 5 years ago
Bootsy Collins
Tha Funk Capital of the World

The naturally mood-elevating bass stylings of Bootsy Collins never seem to go out of style, and that enduring appeal has allowed the funk legend to keep dropping albums at a steady clip to this very day. Be that as it may, we in the Booth have never featured the seasoned vet… until today. The perfect occasion to introduce the Parliament-Funkadelic alum to uninitiated heads, Hip Hop @ Funk U finds Collins coming together with a few of rap’s most storied vets. Over a sprawling funk groove, anchored – of course – with a rock-solid bassline, West Coast icons Ice Cube and Snoop Dogg grab the mic to celebrate the headliner’s classic contributions to the game, the latter even proclaiming himself “Bootsy’s baby brother.” Public Enemy frontman Chuck D brings some Northeastern flavor to the final third, dedicating his verse to all the funk greats who have passed away. Topped off with an unknown singer’s infectious hook vocals and a heartwarming cameo from a young “Snoop protégé,” Funk U should brighten the day of anyone with a funky bone in his or her body. If you’re digging it, prepare to journey to The Funk Capital of the World on April 26, when Collins’ latest LP hits stores.

Note: The stream for Hip Hop @ Funk U has been temporarily been removed.
