FUNK GROOVES

Grooves have always been a source of power for brothers. They keep brothers together and keep brothers hopeful. The funk grooves started in the '60s but were most prevelant during the '70s. Cats of all kind make the funk, and there are different purposes for making the funk. One thing is almost always the same though--you can get down with any funk song.

HEY!
For all y'all out dere dat don't really know what's goin' on wit da FUNK GROOVES, check out dis book

Yeah, dat's right. It's Rickey Vincent's FUNK: The MUSIC, the PEOPLE and the RHYTHM of THE ONE. Fo' all y'all dat fink EVERYFING is "da bomb." Dis book will teach you what da bomb really is AND everyfang else you need to know about FUNK! I know a lot of your brothas and sistas is illiterate (no fanks to da man) but, dis is yo' reason to git yo'self educated. I gaurantee it's worf it.

Sly and the Family Stone were some original funksters. Sly is one crazy dude, but his brand of soul-funk was extremely groovable. The Man won't allow no Funk Hall of Fame and Museum for all the brothers who made the seventies more grooveable for brothers, but this place will do for Sly and his gang for now.


Another brother that was real hip to the soul-funk grooves was Stevie Wonder. This brother funked songs diggin' with love, personal achievment and when he's seriousing, political statements. These political statements usually jive about brothers' social conditions, like livin' in the ghetto and oppression by the Man. Dis place is carryin' all the rap on Stevie. Y'all can dig Stevie here, too.


George Clinton, "the Supreme Maggot Minister of Funkadelia" had his own style of Funk. Clinton and his groups Funkadelic and Parliament, or sometimes know as P-Funk grooved with an acid rock beat. Their sound was much harsher and heavier than most any other kind of funk. But of course, their style of Funk was grooveable.



Herbie Hancock has been makin' funk-jazz grooves since the '60s. This cat is the master of the white ivories (ya' dig?), especially electric piano. His infamous funk-jazz album, Headhunters, moves with traditional jazz improvisation, and grooves with the funk sound. Also, it is the best selling jazz album ever. He funkifies with many other albums and is still recording.


Jivin' about Herbie, he funked the theme song to the toon for young brother's, Fat Albert. Check out Funky's words on Fat Albert.


Y'all know this brother as the Godfather of Soul, and Soul Brother number 1. Some tag 'im as the Godfather of Funk. Funky B. don't care what you call 'im, just don't call 'im white. He's da hardest workin' man in show bizness, and his grooves got about all da soul and funk a brother can take. Check out all the rap on James Brown .


Funky B. will be bringing more groove cats to y'all, and they're all funky as Bootsy. So just chill tight, baby. In da meantime, check out da page with a bunch of funksters.


BLAXPLOITATION MOVIES

Blaxploitation films are another source of power and unity for brothers. It took until the seventies for the Man to allow brothers to make films about brothers (and sisters, too). Blaxploitation films always portray a brother in a low down position, put there by none other than the Man. These brothers don't take no jive from whitey, though. They use any means necessary to break free from their positioin and show the Man that he can't keep brothers down. These cats kept hope alive for the people during bad times. Besides that, these movies are just diggin'.


He's the dude that's got the plan to stick it to the Man. And, he's always got the shit. He's also carrying heat, with a real funky groove, ya' dig?


This is another bad dude, the baddest detective around.


The original rapper is mackin' here:


This flat's got all the Blaxploitation Movies for the brothers who dig more.


JIVE

Jive is the talk that identifies brothers. It's an artistic form of talk, even though whitey don't want to believe it. It also funkifies speech. Some cats talk in pure, straight out jive and even if you're a brother, you'd need a dictionary to understand their smack. But Funky B. don't play all out jive. Otherwise, the Man ain't gonna understand him. And if the Man don't understand Funky B., the Man can't be scared. Ya' dig?


Now y'all can add yo' own jive to funkify this page even more.

Give yo'self a name:
Yo' Jive:


Or y'all can just check out Other Brothers' Jive.


If y'all don't know how to write in jive, this translator can do it for you. Just write yo' whitey words, or whatever, and they'll catch you on the rebound with yo' rap in jive.

DISCLAIMER: Y'all might not dig the jive you get back. But don't blame Funky B, baby. It ain't his fault. Funky B. don't have no connections to these jive makers.
