Kendrick and George Clinton

Funkadelic “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You (Remix)” ft. Kendrick Lamar

Funk has always managed to stay relevant throughout the progression of hip hop music. Heavy inspiration can be found in both Ice Cube and his cousin Del The Funky Homosapien’s respective debuts in the early ’90s, as well as on rap’s newly heralded savior Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly album—featuring the Godfather of funk himself on “Wesley’s Theory.”

This time around, George Clinton recruits Kendrick and Boogie Down house music legend Louie Vega for an epic, new uptempo remix to Funkadelic’s “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You?” While the track is by no means a rap song by traditional standards, displaying mostly funk and electronic influence, Kendrick contributes a playful verse to add hip hop flare previously not present in the original cut off of the First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate album. The remix EP, featuring multiple versions of this song, is out now.
