James Brown Passing...
The funk man passeth... An amazingly creative life. He's influenced every genre of music, and he'll be missed, but not forgotten. Thank you James Brown for your funky offerings.

I just went on to youtube and other sites and watched some amazing films from the man's career. What a showstopper! This guy could dance, sing, and bedazzle a crowd like nobody's business. A major influence to the world of music, fo sho.

Even early hip hop would have taken on a completely different sound without the Godfather of Rap. Today's hip hop might not reflect that, but you might have fun looking up an old Big Daddy Kane or LL Cool J track after listening to James Brown's music. Of course, that was back when people rapped about wearing shoes with big laces and talking too much.

So much of his stuff was sampled in major rap songs, current and old skool... All ya gotta do is listen to hear the connections...
