George Clinton has been bringing the funk for decades as the driving force between classic acts like Parliament and Funkadelic. He's already had a legendary run, but the funk pioneer isn't done yet. Mothership, The Decatur Connection is a full collaborative project of all new music with rapper Aleon Craft. While Clinton's work is some of the most sampled music in hip-hop history, this is the first time he's linked with a rapper for a complete, new project.
The mixtape fuses southern hip-hop and funk into a new style all together, which Craft has dubbed "Solar-Hop." It's got a touch of the old school funky feel to it, but it's undeniably fresh.
