A Look At The Upcoming “Betty” Davis Documentary (Trailer)

Hmmm. Now this is interesting! Scuttlebutt around the Interwebs is that this was supposed to come out as a project called “Nasty Gal” but is finally seeing the [Festival] light in this form. Above is the trailer for Phil Cox’s upcoming Betty Davis documentary, They Say I’m Different.

She dropped MAJOR names at the end (Miles, Jimi) and put her name right up there with them, didn’t she? Dope. But maybe some folks are not knowing about the funk for real… yet! Wait and watch for this. Like the rest of us. Should be well worth it.

Funk/Soul: Thundercat – “Show You The Way” feat. Michael McDonald x Kenny Loggins (Video)

Okay… Thundercat is OUT THERE! See, “Them Changes” was already… er, eccentric. Well, this is a sequel to that; and it is CRAY in the best way. Like features (and actual appearances) from Doobie Bro Michael McDonald and Kenny “Footloose” Loggins. REALLY the best way. Awesomeness from the ’80s travels to the future to continue our tale of the armless Samurai.

(Yeah. Just watch!)

Flying Lotus – “Night Grows Pale”

Maybe this was what it was, just an instrumental track that Flying Lotus cooked up and served as a standalone dish. But if there were emcees around when this “Night Grows Pale” was on playback in the studio… they were fighting for it! Guaranteeed. This is that dope beat somebody needs to pay, and pay dearly, for son!

Glad it’s up for streaming though. Call this a win either way.

Classic Clips: Stevie Wonder – “Superstition” (Live On ‘Sesame Street’) [Video]

Stevie being the genius that gave us “Superstition” is enough. But seeing him do it live… Okay, that’s incredible; and enough, to be certain. But what will make your Sunday and New Year wonderful is that Stevie Wonder rocked ‘Sesame Street’ live with that joint!

It was like a funk & soul clinic for the kids: Talk about a Children’s Television Workshop!

Gnarly Davidson – “F*** Me, I’m Famous” (Video)

You know what? I am so sick of being modest. Hey, pretty lady…

CeeLo Green, in the guise of Gnarly Davidson, is trying to go raw (probably literally ladies) in his new “F*** Me, I’m Famous” song and video. Notice a strong George Clinton, Funkadelic pulse giving life to the beat? It’s in there. Keep playing it. Super dope. And so much pimpin’ talk in there, too. So all you ‘squares’ ought to stop what you are doing, watch, listen and learn. Haaa!

At around 3 min, prepare for your first legit “DAAAAAAMNN! Did he just…” reaction. And it won’t be the last watching this.

Combine Rock, Funk, Hip-Hop, Tom Morello (of Rage Against The Machine), B-Real (of Cypress Hill), Chuck D & DJ Lord (of Public Enemy); and you get Prophets Of Rage.
