リック・ジェームスというのはアレだ。
なんというか仇花だ。
ソウルとかファンクでありながらポップでキャッチーで、わざわざニセモノっぽくしかも下品で猥褻で見てくれが怪しい。
そういうヒップホップの元祖だと思っている。

"Super Freak" is a 1981 hit single, produced and performed by Rick James for the Motown label. The song, co-written by James and Alonzo Miller, was first released on James' album Street Songs, reached #16 on the Billboard Hot 100, and is today one of James' signature songs. It features background vocals from Motown labelmates The Temptations, in which the bass singer is James' uncle Melvin Franklin, and Canadian singer Taborah Johnson.

そして多くのヒップホップのメンツのリスペクトを受けてきた。
そのあたりは、テクニックに走るファンクの厭らしさを単純化し、いちはやくクールを生み出した才覚のなせる業か?
そんな彼も亡くなりました。合掌。

The song is well known by those who grew up in the late-1980s/early-1990s for being sampled by M.C. Hammer on his 1990 smash hit "U Can't Touch This". However, the "Rick James" segments featured on Chappelle's Show have brought the original song back into general familiarity. The title track of Jay-Z's comeback album Kingdom Come features a sample from "Super Freak."
