As we continue to celebrate the music made by us, James Brown HAS to be apart of the conversation. After all this is the man that birthed Michael Jackson and Prince, who birthed Usher, who birthed Chris Brown and on and on.  Not to mention all the Hip H0p Beats birthed from James Brown music!  He did so while strengthening his community  with his words and making him dance with the melodies.  This August the movie about his life, Get On Up debuts starring Jill Scott,  Chadwick Bozeman (42), Dan Aykroyd, Craig Robinson and Black Thought (from The Roots).  For right now just check out this Dope mix by DJ, J Period.  If you listen closely you may hear JB doing his thing with Michael Jackson or some words by Kanye, and listen for some of your favorite samples!
