Killer Mike spits folk music over Funkadelic

Posted By on Thu, Jan 13, 2011 at 3:30 PM

Maurice Garland recently caught up with Killer Mike Mike Bigga in the studio and got a preview from Mike's forthcoming album (at the 2:45 mark). The song "Burn" features that socioeconomic flow he spits so well, over a beat that's pretty damn funky. So funky, in fact, that it could only be the Funk. With production credited to Sweatbox Productions, it sounds like little was done to alter the original sample of "You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks" from Funkadelic's Maggot Brain album. Honestly, I hope Sweatbox didn't pay one thin dime for the sample clearance. ’Cause if so, it's just more money George Clinton and company will never see — which, in an ironic sorta way, makes MIke's underdog flow over the track that much more meaningful.
