He also said all of the recent films and documentaries about not only his career but other artists who have been influenced by or crossed paths with Clinton and P-Funk have caused him to relive much of his career.
“I had to because of all the interviews and documentaries. Like ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ I had to revisit that music. They keep putting out different movies, and even that Northern Soul (reissue) stuff in Europe is making me revisit it. And going though the courts, of course. I’m getting a lot of them [songs] back.”
Does it make him proud to look back at his career?
“Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I’m a songwriter at heart, so it’s great to see these young kids redoing my songs. Not just sampling them, but covering them.”
