Dr. Funkenstein aka George Clinton has always been around in one of his myriad forms, but by my count it has been nearly 40 years (!!) since the last new song released under the Parliament name. That long, painful funk drought is now over, though, with the recent release of “I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me,” by Parliament and featuring Scarface.
Like most official P-Funk projects these days, “I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me” appears to be essentially a George Clinton solo joint, with Scarface lending support. But it’s catchy and funky in the Parliament tradition, and is supposedly part of a new Parliament album coming out (possibly in parts) later this year. However, that information is coming from a few different George Clinton interviews over the past few days, so take it with a grain of skag.
“I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me” is available to hear on streaming services like Spotify though, so check it out below if you’re interested. And stay tuned for more Parliament stuff hopefully in the near future.
