George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic

Rolling Stone interview here


In 2014, the legendary artist released a new Funkadelic triple album, First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate – “Thirty-three [songs] was overboard, but I don’t regret it,” he tells Rolling Stone – and the autobiography; last year, Clinton appeared on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly. He has also kept an eye on his legacy: The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened this past September, includes a 1,200-pound Nineties replica of the famed Parliament-Funkadelic Mothership.
