Lookin' at the devil, grinnin' at his gun

We begin to wrestle I was on the top

PHEW. Eye. Mean THIS is an iconic FUNK masterpiece. Bassline from Larry Graham was and is a cornerstone, no matter what style you indulge in. Sly's an ENGINEER of this genre. With th Hip OUT factor.

The bass line was used in Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation, obviously this is the superior song, but that was pretty cool too.

sometimes you just need to grow up and be an adult and issue the respect to the artists that they deserve...in s t e a d of taking stupid liberties. Just remember how you feel when someone twists your words....
