Man, i woke up 2 this news. As i waz growing up in the 80's and maturing in the 90's...i regularly watched James Brown do this thing on TV. He truely is an underrated legend.

Thanx for posting that Ted, i've always known MC Hammer waz one of his biggest fans so i knew Hammer had something 2 say about him. Infact i feel he waz obligated 2 say something. I think i'm gonna pop in my MC Hammer DVD 2nite..ha ha. I also remember Michael Jackon interviews where he talked about getting so mad when James Brown waz on TV and they camera man would zoom in on him while he waz dancing cuz MJ wanted 2 see his moves. James Brown is an influence 2 millions of artists. It'll be interesting 2 see how other artists respond 2 this newz.

I have a handful of songs from James Brown, but i've never actually picked up a complete James Brown LP. I'll be sure 2 do that this week.

Chuck D just came on the Public Enemy site with a special terrordome dedicated to James Brown, I turn on Hot 97 quite a bit today to see if they'd play any James Browen songs or James Brown songs that were sampled by rappers but they ain't playing nothing, it really is sad, James Brown paved the way for black music, I guess if they don't play James Brown's music on the day he died then I guess we'll never hear a Will Smith song on black radio, if the hip-hop industry don't respond after James Brown died then I guess Nas is just right, it's actually fitting that thwe hip-hop is dead album came out the same week that the #1 soul brother left us:

Here's Chuck D's terrordome:


Mr James Brown; May God Rest His Funky Soul

December 25, 2006

Got the news Christmas eve from Davey D on the Westside of the country; we'd just left there. Thus at 3AM in the East, it's too early and too late to call anybody like my man KYLE JASON who, together with me, did our damnedest to catch his tour three years back. I had heard things like Mr. Brown was pushing it real hard, defying gravity and time itself. I myself saw a seventy year old man wear an Atlanta stage out, as well as the crowd. It was good to see some black folks in the audience for a change, checking out our classic creator of funky soul himself. Now this news. It makes one really understand that time is God itself. Thus we shall praise God and cherish the time. James Brown is somewhat woven into my professional and entertainment regimen. In my travels on the tour bus from Sacramento to Spokane, I'd just picked up yet another JB CD; this one from Universal Millennium MASTERS 'JAMES BROWN and FRIENDS' for my drive time groove pleasure, in the hotel the BLUES BROTHERS were on AMC where JB did that scorching preacher scene in the church backed by the JAMES CLEVELAND CHOIR. While everybody seemed to relish in the now of comedian KATT WILLIAMS on the long bus ride, I locked my DVD player and headphones to Mr. Brown's classic SOULTRAIN and PARIS performances. When talking music, JB was/is just part of the day, thank God for recordings. As a 70's B-boy I recall panic on the floors of hip hop while GIVE IT UP TURN IT LOOSE roasted off the 1969 SEX MACHINE LIVE LP transfixing the forming rap nation ten years later, as if it were a discovered oil well. While the rest of the disco and rock country had not a clue.

As barely a social hum registered at the recent passings of ATLANTIC RECORDS founder AHMET ERTEGAN and ATLANTIC RECORDS star R&B artist RUTH BROWN, I as a music student felt those losses. Good peer and buddy GERALD LEVERTS passing was a shock and largely just black folk's pain at the loss, like a family member ... nationally only a few sentences because an Anglo-nation couldn't possibly understand. Now MR. JAMES BROWN is entirely another magnitude, a seismic passing - the level of a KING, the Cincinnati record label he recorded on or a very funky president, the title of his 1975 political hit. Recently I covered some ground being interviewed for a movie documentary his latest wife TAMI RAYE was producing. I myself felt extremely honored to have been asked to be interviewed for that and his prior SOUL SURVIVOR special and DVD. I promised myself to reach and do all I can when the legends callout. I missed out on MR. RAY CHARLES, wanting to catch any show during 2002, then I heard he got sick. The founders of rock and roll are still doing gigs - LITTLE RICHARD, CHUCK BERRY, BO DIDDLEY, and we almost lost FATS DOMINO to Katrina. JERRY LEE LEWIS just released a new album, and IKE and TINA TURNER continue to defy time. Still MR. JB is it for me. I have yet to meet MR. MUHAMMAD ALI, and only met RICHARD PRYOR one brief two minute period at the 2000 BET AWARDS in LAS VEGAS. I met MR. JAMES BROWN. Backstage in the concocted green room looking at the screens - just me and another gentleman were checking it out. I was behind this man dressed in a bluish suit, but I could tell it was James Brown. Reading everything about the man beforehand I knew to address him as MR. BROWN. I tapped him on the shoulder and said "Hello, er, MR. BROWN" and introduced myself. He asked my name again and when I answered it must've registered, because he let out a "Whoa", and smiled with a hug. I didn't have a damn camera and asked him to hold on. When I came back a minute later he was gone, on stage doing his thing with singer GINUWINE. Off stage he left through another way.... and that was the one time for me. Man, no lie, whenever I see a frozen pond, I take myself to 1967 when us kids did the James Brown I Feel Good dance on any patch of ice. Global warming has somehow produced fewer patches of ice, just as soul loses a bit of itself every ten years. The sheer magnitude of SAY IT LOUD I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD was an implanted, soundtracked theme into understanding that our minds, bodies, and souls were black and beautiful. ALI, PRYOR and JB were our snap, crackle and pop from the transcendent, previously silenced black male in 60's-70's Amerikkka. It ain't never left me. Never will. This is why spreading the word is our jobs as modern day griots. I've had phone conversations with HUEY NEWTON before he passed, KWAME TURE respected my works of words, and Minister Farrakhan and the Nation Of Islam have introduced PE to parts of the darker earth where few like us had gone before. Yes time is God indeed, and all of our words and deeds are in passing, but the passing down and forward is so important. My children know MR. JAMES BROWN's music, as well as LEVI STUBBS of the FOUR TOPS and REVEREND AL GREEN (whereas it was a trip at the SCREAM TOUR 5 in Madison Square Garden NYC hearing 16,000, mostly young black girl, teenagers finishing off singing LETS STAY TOGETHER during YOUNG JOCs DJ set as if it was a clear channel hit).

In the fifty years of MR. BROWN's recorded music, since his 1956 hit PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE; we PUBLIC ENEMY head into our 20th year of existence with full dedicated honor to the fabric MR. James Brown provided for hip hop's co-founders AFRIKA BAMBAATAA, KOOL DJ HERC, and GRANDMASTER FLASH to weave. Expect the utmost respect for the architect. Again I expect the executive asses of the record industry ashes to say little, and do less. The radio stations are eerie in their silence , proving there ain't no such thing as black radio, just robot fuel from white corporations who continue to argue that race ain't an issue. And in the end there will be folks who will dedicate and play 50 years of soul, that realize that black is important to say it loud and proud because amerikka continues to discredit it and strip it away But this should make us realize how lucky many of us are to have witnessed, experienced, and infused the work and pride ethics of the godfather of soul into our daily lives. For that alone we are all better for it. Probably the hardest working man in heaven right now ...but may his funky soul R.I.P ... Mr. Dynamite ......JAAAAMES BROWWWWN

Legendary Singer James Brown Dies, President Bush, Various Rappers React

By Nolan Strong

Date: 12/25/2006 10:54 am

Pioneering R&B legend James "The Godfather of Soul" Brown died early today (Dec. 25) from an unknown illness in Atlanta, GA.

According to his representatives, Brown, 73, was admitted to Emory Crawford Long Hospital on Sunday, suffering from pneumonia.

He died around 1:45 a.m. with manager Charles Bobbitt by his side.

"We really don't know at this point what he died of," Brown's agent Frank Copsidas told the Associated Press.

Rapper Nas, who incorporated a portion of Brown's song "Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved" on the song "Where Are They Now" from his latest album Hip-Hop Is Dead, was lucky enough to meet Brown before his passing.

"I spoke in front of hundreds in his honor," Nas told AllHipHop.com in a statement today (Dec. 25). "I looked directly at him. He smiled while I told him how I used his music with mine and how much he's done for us and how I love him. I'm lucky to have had that moment, shook his hand. He was pure greatness."

The news of Brown's death evoked a statement from United States president George W. Bush Jr.

"Laura and I are saddened by the death of James Brown," Bush said in a statement. "For half a century, the innovative talent of the "Godfather of Soul" enriched our culture and influenced generations of musicians. An American original, his fans came from all walks of life and backgrounds. James Brown's family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers this Christmas."

Rapper Snoop Dogg labeled Brown his "soul inspiration."

"I am hurt. That's my Godfather," Snoop Dogg said. "The hardest working man in show business of all time. He'll be missed, but his music and his legacy will live on through me, in everyway you can imagine."

Rapper Ice Cube acknowledged Brown's iconic status within the Hip-Hop industry as well, as he influenced nearly every rapper or producer that participates in the craft.

"James Brown was the first solo singer that I loved as a kid," Ice Cube admitted. "He was not only the Godfather of Soul, but the Godfather of Funk and Rap. Music will never be the same."

Like many rappers, Brown's story is one of triumph, as the singer was born in extreme poverty in 1933 in Augusta, GA.

In the late 1940's, Brown was arrested for armed robbery.

He gained parole with the help of Bobby Byrd and formed a gospel group.

After unsuccessful stints as a baseball player and a boxer, Brown joined Byrd's group The Avons.

The pair later went on to form their famed group, The Famous Flames in Macon, Georgia in 1955.

Brown and The Famous Flames released a number of seminal records as artists on Syd Nathan's historic Cincinnati, Ohio based label, King Records.

In the 1950's, Brown rode the charts with singles like "Please, Please, Please," "Try Me" and others.

In 1963, Brown released what many consider the most important record in his career - Live at the Apollo.

The album captured the live energy of a James Brown concert and reached #2 on the charts.

Live at the Apollo was the start of Brown's fight for artistic control over his music career.

In 1964 he released the hit single "Out of Sight" for Smash Records, while he was still under contract to King Records.

A following lawsuit prevented Brown from recording until King finally capitulated and granted Brown more artistic freedom.

The result was a spate of hit records, including crossover hits like "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "I Got the Feelin," "It's A Man's World," "Licking Stick-Licking Stick" "Funky Drummer," "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud" and others.

In 1969, Brown's band walked out on him due to his demanding nature as a bandleader.

Brown recruited a young group from Cincinnati named the Pacemakers, which featured Catfish Collins and legendary bassist Bootsy Collins, who became members of the Parliament/Funkadelic collective.

Brown has had over 100 hits throughout his career in the United States. He also embraced Hip-Hop music early in the genre's evolution.

His records have been incorporated into the fabric of Hip-Hop music since the genre's inception in 1973.

Since then, Brown's has been sampled countless times.


He teamed with Hip-Hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa to release the hit single "Unity" in 1984 and in 1988, Brown teamed with R&B/Hip-Hop group Full Force to release "Static, Pts. 1 & 2."

Brown was also an entrepreneur, as the owner of several publishing companies, radio stations and record labels, including the legendary People imprint, which included acts like The JB's, Maceo [Parker] & The Macks and Lyn 'The Female Preacher' Collins, who's James Brown produced single "Think (About It)" was turned into a Hip-Hop classic titled "It Takes Two" by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock.

In 1998, Brown sold $100 million in "James Brown" bonds to undisclosed insurance companies with the help of securities company The Pullman Group.

The bonds were secured against Brown's 750-song catalog, allowing him to use his works as collateral to help feed the poor and to finance the production of his Christmas album, Christmas for the Millennium & Forever.

Brown became a pioneer of digital music with the release of Christmas for the Millennium & Forever.

The album was released via an exclusive deal with Emusic.com in 1999.

Emusic.com licensed the album from Brown and sold the songs as digital downloads exclusively online, while Brown retained the master recordings and publishers and writer's rights.

James Brown Remembered Around the World


Associated Press Writer

ATLANTA - "Godfather of Soul" James Brown remained the hardest working man in show business to the end, telling friends from his hospital bed that he'd be in Times Square on New Year's Eve, even though he had pneumonia.

His heart gave out a few hours later, on Christmas morning.

All Christmas day, famous fans from Mick Jagger to Snoop Dogg to the Rev. Al Sharpton shared memories of their mentor and idol, while lesser known fans left candles on Brown's Hollywood Walk of Fame star in Los Angeles and streamed to his statue in his boyhood hometown of Augusta, piling mementos and flowers at its base.

"Y'all lost the Godfather of Soul, but I lost my father. I know the whole world loved him just as much as we loved him, so we're not mourning by ourselves," Brown's daughter Venisha Brown told The Augusta Chornicle as she stood near the statue, fighting back tears.

The 73-year-old pompadoured dynamo, whose classic singles include "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" and "I Got You (I Feel Good)," died of heart failure less than two days after he had been hospitalized with pneumonia and only three days after leading his annual holiday toy giveaway in Augusta.

"I ain't got the same energy," Brown had told the New York Post a week earlier as he discussed his planned concert tour, "but I'm sharper."

"Father Time, knowledge and prayer - I pray a lot," Brown had said. He described himself as "like Will Rogers: I love everybody. So this is not a hard job for me."

The entertainer with the rough-edged voice and flashy footwork also had diabetes and prostate cancer that was in remission. But he initially seemed fine at the hospital and talked about his New Year's Eve show at B.B. King Blues Club in New York, Copsidas said.

"Last night, he said 'I'm going to be there. I'm the hardest working man in show business,'" Copsidas said Monday.

Brown was himself to the end, at one point saying, "I'm going away tonight," said friend Charles Bobbit, who was with Brown when he died.

"I didn't want to believe him," he said.

A short time later, Brown sighed quietly, closed his eyes and died, Bobbit said.

"His thing was 'I never saw a person that I didn't love.' He was a true humanitarian who loved his country," Bobbit said.

One of the major musical influences of the past 50 years, James Brown was to rhythm and dance music what Bob Dylan was to lyrics.

From Jagger to Michael Jackson, David Bowie to Public Enemy, his rapid-footed dancing, hard-charging beats and heartfelt yet often unintelligible vocals changed the musical landscape.

"He was a whirlwind of energy and precision, and he was always very generous and supportive to me in the early days of the Stones," Jagger said. "His passing is a huge loss to music."

Rapper Snoop Dogg called him "my soul inspiration."

Brown was one of the first artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry and other founding fathers.

"He made soul music a world music," said Sharpton, who toured with Brown in the 1970s and imitates his hairstyle to this day. "What James Brown was to music in terms of soul and hip-hop, rap, all of that, is what Bach was to classical music. This is a guy who literally changed the music industry. He put everybody on a different beat, a different style of music. He pioneered it."

Sharpton will officiate at Brown's funeral service, details of which were still incomplete, Copsidas said.

Brown's daughter-in-law Diane Dean Rouse told The Augusta Chronicle she hoped the funeral would be open to the people of Augusta.

"He would want it open because he would want everybody to get there and because that's who he loved," she said.

Brown won a Grammy for lifetime achievement in 1992, as well as Grammys in 1965 for "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" (best R&B recording) and for "Living In America" in 1987 (best R&B vocal performance, male.) He had a brief but memorable role on the big screen as a manic preacher in the 1980's movie "The Blues Brothers."

Brown, who lived in Beech Island, S.C., near the Georgia line, also had a turbulent personal life that included charges of abusing drugs and alcohol. After a widely publicized, drug-fueled confrontation with police in 1988 that ended in an interstate car chase, Brown spent 15 months in a South Carolina prison and 10 months in a work release program.

From the 1950s, when Brown had his first R&B hit, "Please, Please, Please" in 1956, through the mid-1970s, Brown went on a frenzy of cross-country tours, concerts and new songs. He earned the nickname "The Hardest Working Man in Show Business" and often tried to prove it to his fans, said Jay Ross, his lawyer of 15 years.

Brown's stage act was as memorable, and as imitated, as his records, with his twirls and spins and flowing cape, his repeated faints to the floor at the end.

With his tight pants, eye makeup and outrageous hair, Brown set the stage for younger stars such as Jackson and Prince. And the early rap generation overwhelmingly sampled his music and voice as they laid the foundation of hip-hop culture.

His trademark moment of each performance was at the end: A weary, spent Brown begins to leave the stage, a cape thrown over his shoulders, then suddenly stops, shakes the cape off and rushes back to grab the microphone, his voice and feet moving at top speed all over again.

"Disco is James Brown, hip-hop is James Brown, rap is James Brown; you know what I'm saying? You hear all the rappers, 90 percent of their music is me," Brown told The AP in 2003.

Brown was born in poverty in Barnwell, S.C., in 1933, and abandoned as a 4 year old to the care of relatives and friends. He grew up in Augusta in an "ill-repute area," as he once called it, learning how to hustle to survive.

By the eighth grade in 1949, Brown had served 3 1/2 years in reform school for breaking into cars. While there, he met Bobby Byrd, whose family took Brown into their home. Byrd also took Brown into his group, the Gospel Starlighters. Soon they changed their name to the Famous Flames and their style to hard R&B.

"He was dramatic to the end - dying on Christmas Day," said the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a friend of Brown's since 1955. "Almost a dramatic, poetic moment. He'll be all over the news all over the world today. He would have it no other way."

Brown is survived by his partner, Tomi Rae Hynie, one of his backup singers, and at least four children - two daughters and sons Daryl and James Brown II, Copsidas said.

I found this post on the Public Enemy board made by Ginuwine's brother:

I recorded a video of my brother Ginuwine speaking on James Brown. I shot it right after we found out about his passing the same day of his passing.

Probably not a lotta Ginuwine fans here but i thought some of you might be interested to see one of the newer R&B cats giving it up to the Godfather.

I was fortunate enough to see my brother perform with James Brown for the 20th Anniversary BET special. I was front row with our mom (GOD rest her soul) and that's something that will always be special to me.

Imagine seeing your brother performing on stage with one of your moms favorite artist that she grew up on. That's the highlight of my brothers career to me.

Peace and Blessings to James Brown.

Here's the link to the video i shot...its on you tube and i included the BET performance as well.

Hammer posting pics of the viewing, it says there that he was born in 1928 so that'd made him 78 years old then?? Hammer even wrote a lil' tribute rap to James:

James Brown: It's Time To Go Home

Determined to make it,

His dance a threat,

His voice a power,


A Cold Sweat,

It's Time To Go Home

His face was stone,

His hair was whipped,

Jaw line was bold,

His heart,

A warm morning mist,

It's Time To Go Home

Gifted to touch,

He gave so much,

Every show,

Each night,

And never lost his touch,

It's Time To Go Home

The pain of the struggle,

was etched in his face,

but the words from his mouth,

reflected God's grace,

It's Time To Go Home

Please Don't Go,

Master of the show,

Brothers gotta work it out,

We free but won't go

It's Time To Go Home

Say It Loud,

We need a theme,

Brothers killing Brothers,

We still Proud,

but we have no hope,

No dreams,

It's Time To Go Home

Dream young man,

Dream young girl,

Be like The GodFather Of Soul,

And conquer this man's world,

It's Time To Go Home

It official he was prophetic,

Hardest working man in show business,

proclaimed and vetted,

It's Time To Go Home

Now be still, sleep and rest,

prepare to minister your music,

on the highest level yet,

It's Time To Go Home

The author of melody has required your soul,

God knew when he made you,

Soul Brother Number One

you too cold!

It's Time To Go Home
