Snoop Dogg And Dam Funk 7 Days Of Funk on Limited Edition 8 x 7" 45RPM Vinyl Box Set
Featuring a Total of 8 Records with 16 Tracks: the 7-Track Album, Instrumentals and a Bonus Record "Wingz" b/w "Systematic"
Stones Throw Records is pleased to announce the release of 7 Days of Funk from Dam-Funk and Snoopzilla aka the legendary Snoop Dogg. "We're the babies of the Mothership," says Snoop. "I've had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dam-Funk is cold. He's keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him."
The King of Modern Funk meets the smoked-out scion of G-Funk on the 7 Days of Funk album, where Snoop performs under the name Snoopzilla, the homage to the legendary funk master, Bootsy Collins, who often went by the moniker Bootzilla. After an initial chance meeting two years ago, Dam and Snoop began to collaborate when Snoop invited Dam to perform with him at a 2011 SXSW show - the musical connection was inherent.
"Snoop knew what I was thinking without me having to articulate it. That's how you know when you gel artistically with someone," Dam-Funk says. "These beats were made for him and he laid down some of the smoothest harmonies and melodies I've ever heard. It's hip-hop, but you can also hear what we grew up on, from Zapp to Evelyn 'Champagne' King and Patrice Rushen."
As an entertainment icon, there is little Snoop Dogg hasn't accomplished. The Long Beach legend has sold over 30,000,000 albums, and received 15 Grammy nominations, but at heart, the funk has inspired many tracks through his career. Growing up at the other end of L.A. was Pasadena's Dam-Funk. Since his 2009 debut, Toeachizown, the Stones Throw-signed visionary has defined modern funk music and this isn't a fad for him, it's a way of life. He's the new vanguard of a tradition encompassing George Clinton, Roger Troutman, Prince and Snoop Dogg himself, who helped pioneer G-Funk with Dr. Dre.
Snoop Dogg and Dam-Funk's 7 Days of Funk is now being offered as a 7" 45 rpm box set, containing a total of 8 records with 16 tracks: the 7-track album, instrumentals and a bonus record "Wingz" b/w "Systematic."
