If I wasn't black, I prolly wouldn't even listen to rap Soldier by Jon Connor

It’s a cliché that rap is for the coloured folks, because most rappers are black, and a lot of black people listen to rap, whether it is mainstream or underground. And don’t even get me started on the fact that almost every rap from the 90’s was about hoods or the ghetto.

Fellas, I'm ready to get up and do my thing Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine - Pt. 1 by James Brown

James' “thing” was about to undergo a pretty significant change. This song was one of the first recorded by a new backing band, The J.B.’s. After his previous band walked out over a pay dispute, Brown brought in members from a little-known Ohio funk band called The Pacemakers

It was a decision that would change the course of the funk. The bassist from that group was William “Bootsy” Collins, whose improvisational, busy bass style (as heard here) was light-years from the tightly controlled, composed lines of previous Brown bassists. This combination was explosive, but shone too brightly to last. Bootsy left the band after less than a year, and ended up becoming a member of the Parliament-Funkadelic collective
