So just when you least expect it the funk-master George Clinton shows that you don't funk with his music. Clinton has alleged that the Peas illegally sampled a song of his called "(NOT JUST) KNEE DEEP" for their song "Shut Up," and is taking him to court.
This is a true bummer, but me thinks I side with the master of funk...sorry Black Eyed Peas. Read the encounter stories of both George Clinton AND The Black Eyed Peas at iFollo! As long as George Clinton's attorney is as funky as him, no court of law could turn a blind eye on the shear funkiness of George Clinton.
