Chuck D. & Lil Boosie to Honor James Brown at Upcoming Tribute

Public Enemy front man Chuck D and Baton Rouge MC Lil Boosie are scheduled to take part in an upcoming tribute concert honoring the late James Brown. Organized by legendary funk musician Bootsy Collins, the first annual James Brown Tribute Concert will be held at the Madison Theater in Covington, Ky on December 22. Brown passed away on Christmas Day 2006. According to Billboard.com, the two rappers will join Collins, rock guitarist Buckethead and Brown’s original band The Soul Generals for performances honoring the Godfather of Soul. Proceeds from the show will go towards rebuilding Brown’s early Cincinnati based record label, King Records, and establishing a museum. Collins told Billboard that he plans on making the show an annual event.

  • Fireforreal

    Fuck lil boosie. Why the fuck is he included.I see why chuck d is because he sampled james a few times in his music and like James his music is the voice of the people. But Boosie ? Mr. wipe me down huh ? I guess he’s there to bring in the 14-19 crowd because real hip hop heads ain’t with that gay shit. And people wonder why hip hop is so wack because we keep letting these non talented cats keep bringing out bullshit and the lables seem to think it’s all good sense there ringtone is selling units even when there album is not.

    Yo, Boosie? I’m not even gonna hate on the Lil nigga but c’mon, for real, this isn’t a fitting place for him, This is a ceremony to pay homage to one of the greatest music artist of all time and the best current rap artist they could get was Lil Boosie?!?!?! Something is wrong here, I’m not even gonna state the factual truth about the nigga having no talent(any crackhead can say obvious street events over a beat with deep drums and Barney rhymes so what are you really saying???), but to honor a legend…thats fucked up…The Industry is really saying “Fuck you NIGGERS and your NIGGER music and your NIGGER legends”…THATS FUCKED UP!!! The ignorant masses of the world can support Boosie’s private practice of noise making, but even a classless asshole has to admit this isn’t appropriate…I spit in Hip Hop’s face!!!

    Bootsy is a brilliant, one of the greatest bass players ever, and Buckethead is a gotdamn virtuoso, probably the greatest musician to emerge in the last 20 years or so. I wish I could have gone to that show.
