Love it, a great 2nd intro to Emancipation and apparently first song recorded for it.

Love the postman rap!

How could somebody with a name like funkomatic not like that bass line.

I like it. It has one of the few raps in a Prince song that works.

Fell in love with it when I first heard it. The vocal layering is hip. One of my favorites from the first disk & its a "MasterPiece"....

eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

It's okay but not one of my favorites on the Emancipation album. There were a lot of gems on that 3 disc set, but this song wasn't one of them, IMO.

I will forever love and miss you...my sweet Prince.

seemed kinda fillerish when i first heard it but the bassline really sticks once u get into it. i still find it kind of fillerish but i like it.

Agree, the rap is the best part of the song. Which says it all, if you know what I mean... wink

Know what...I dont voluntarily play this one often.....but when it comes on a shuffle there is absolutely NO WAY Im turning it off!

Cuz thats my only mission

I love the effects he used on his vocals.

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

Yeah, it's the type of a track you always sort of forget about, but when you put on CD1 of Emancipation you'll remember how enjoyable it is.

Well, I'd hardly consider any of the first six songs on the first disc classics, but there's something about that six song progression that clicks really well with me (yes, even Betcha By...).

If EMI wouldn't have folded soon after its release Prince definitely would have had some hits from this "MasterPiece" of a project. I'm sure out of all his releases this one had to be a bit disappointing to him. Since he put so much time & effort into planning it.But sometimes in life things don't go as planned & the lost of Boy Gregory played a major play in it as well. sad

This song is a perfect example of what's wrong with this album.

It sounds good at first, solid groove - then nothing happens of much variety or inspiration, and then it ends.

At the same time overproduced and unfinished. Too much energy into the studio and too little into the songwriting.

Funk itself, is rooted in simplicity, but I feel you, to each his own.

I love the effects he used on his vocals.

Nice energy and great vocal delivery. But the lack of interesting melody and repetitiveness makes it not memorable and not a favorite.

It's like pp4 says -- I like the song when it comes on. But otherwise, it's hard for me to even remember how the tune goes.

It;s one of my favorites.

Reminds me of Londonboy. When I missed him, I listened to this song.

99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

have you??? have you ever done any vocal layering in the studio? if not YOU have no idea what you're talking about! you have no opinions other than everything prince has ever done being a "masterpiece", but you never qualify why it's a masterpiece. you know fuck all about music!
