Could funk and rap have existed without James Brown? Of course not. But as you'll discover, Mr. Dynamite's fingers set off explosions in everything from rock to jazz, from soul to Afro Beat. Public Enemy producers the Bomb Squad buried their arms elbow-deep in James' crates to grab samples for the hip-hop anthem "Don't Believe the Hype," including its track-defining horn-on-helium squeal. The Jackson 5's very first audition tape included a cover of Brown's "I Got the Feeling," and the master's shadow looms large and loud over Michael's "Workin' Day and Night," with its razor-crease horns and swivel-hip groove. And in a case of "what goes around comes around," Miles Davis — whose horn genius inspired the jazz-playing moonlighters in the J.B.'s — takes a lesson from the James Brown School of Funk in the bass-slappin', haunch-grindin' fusion of "Black Satin." From Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings to Led Zeppelin, from Fela Kuti to Prince, we've got the best of the next generation that studied, savored, and sampled soul's singular superstar.
