Der großartige Rick James ist Coverboy der aktuellen Ausgabe von Wax Poetics.
ICE CUBE: It looked street to me, with cops and the prostitutes in the background. But the outfit Rick had on to me was, like - I don't know, man. Ain't nobody going to walk down the street like that.
AMG: It was like hip-hop, but it was straight funk. What's funny is that rappers were trying to do funk records back then, like the Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. But Street Songs had the pussy records, the fuck-the-police records — it basically had the early elements of an NWA record.
