Sample Snitching: I’d Rather Be Bootsy Collins

One of the greatest bass guitarists of all time. Possibly THE greatest. He worked with James Brown, Parliament and Funkadelic, and according to my flatmate he invented bass rhythms that would later become the basis of 90s hip hop. Ol’ Gregg gives us the back story about how he got the funk, and here are a couple of rappers that tried to sample some of that sweet milky funk juice.

Podcast: Jheri Curl Corner with Arabian Prince

Vodpod videos no longer available. Cloudcast: Arabian Prince Interview, 80s Hip Hop and Nate Dogg Tribute

Stories of being chased by police from state to state with N.W.A. like they were the Blues Brothers, roller skating with Dr Dre and intergalactic conversations with Will.I.Am. We were fortunate enough to be granted an audience with His Highness, Arabian Prince and these are just some of the subjects we touched on. Possibly one of the best interviews we have done, though I did accidentally call him ‘African Prince’. Yeeeessshh… Sorry!

We also play some music. 80s Electro Hip Hop, Indie Backpacker Rap, and we pull together a little tribute for Nate Dogg. Next week we will do it in more depth.
