Quote of the Day

"People love funk, people love to dance. I don't think, a lot of times, the rap on top of stuff really means or meant anything. To a lot of kids, as long as the beat was low-down and filthy, they loved it. A lot of times, you could get up and say anything on top of it: 'My asshole hurts,' or 'I got a hemorrhoid,' or anything. It really didn't matter. And it would sell, because the beat was so funky. A lot of stuff looked like that." - Rick James
