Prince Paul Forms New Group With P-Funk Member Bernie Worrell

281x211.jpgLegendary hip-hop producer, Prince Paul, has formed an unlikely group, Baby Elephant, with two-time Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Famer and keyboard mastermind, Bernie Worrell. As a member of George Clinton’s group, Parliament-Funkadelic, Warroll was influential in shaping West Coast hip-hop, as artists such as Dr. Dre sampled his P-Funk production for his classic album, The Chronic. Now, Worrell is teaming up with Prince Paul, the former Stetsasonic group member who is revered for his work with De La Soul and The Gravediggaz. The two met while Worrell was promoting his documentary, Stranger: Bernie Worrell on Earth. Afterwards, the two musical geniuses hit it off and decided to create a funk/soul album under the pseudonym Baby Elephant. “He’s an accomplished musician and I’m some b-boy cat,” Prince Paul says about the album. “I don’t want people to think it’s like some hip-hop beats over him playing. We’re trying to invent something.” Baby Elephant will be release their debut album, Turn My Teeth Up, on September 15

    Fake ass Gnarles Barkley.

    Bernie is one of the GOAT keyboardists. Paul is one of the greatest sample based producers, often credited for the intention of the hip hop skit on albums. This could be a great innovative project. Show respect! Gnarls Barkley should be lucky enough to work with them.

    I agree with The Ghost of Eazy man, Parliament / Funkadelic has a real huge contribution to Music history as we know it. Even the album art was collectible. Keep your 3rd eye open for that Prince Paul & Bernie Worrell colabo.

    I wonder if Chino XL will spit on that album, Bernie is his Uncle.

  • NickeNitro

    Bernie Worrell is a genius — he was the backbone of Parliament/Funkadelic. I have no doubt this will be a great album.
