The only 2 Prince Funk albums were Black and Exodus and both of those has a lot of non funk tracks.

Facts don't give a funk about your opinion.

Hell, 1999.

yeah i said it. Its not raw nasty sweaty funk but nice electronic thematic sexy funk. 1999, Automatic, Lady Cab Driver, Irresistable bitch, Something In The Water, All The Critics...yes lawd.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

There is nothing funky about the 1999 album, other than the groove from Lady Cab Driver. Hell, might as well call Purple Rain LP a funk album too, lol.

For me, Innervisions by Stevie based solely on three songs; Living For The City, Higher Ground, and Jesus Children of America.

Want to update everyone that this book is now available in hardcopy, which is something lots of people requested. You'll also notice a new cover and there are some other additions inside too, like a Funk Final Exam at the end. As well, the eBook version has had its price reduced.

Please enjoy and pass the word!

Oh, c'mon. "Billy Jack Bitch" is just updated Parliament. "Endorphinmachine" and "319" are 90s funk rock at their best. "Pussy Control" might be Prince doing comedy hiphop to most ears, but he's really relying on his funk chops all the way through it.


Sure, the record contains very little "obvious funk", but Prince was often like that due to his own choice. You know, it would have been very easy to turn "319" into a pure funk track just by replacing the distorted guitar sound by a clean guitar sound.

I really don't think Sly is a very good example of an artist that's identifiable as "mainly a funk artist".

Do you mind if you make your case


Just for starters:
https://en.wikipedia.org/...mily_Stone

"Sly and the Family Stone was an American band from San Francisco. Active from 1966 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of funk, soul, rock, and psychedelic music."


If you're going to attempt to discredit Prince's status as "a funk artist" due to him having done different styles of music then at least use an artist that's not well-known for having done different types of music as well as your counterexample.

That was my point and not that Sly Stone "wasn't a funk artist" or that he "wasn't an important funk artist".
