[1 Dec 2010 | Comments Off on 5 Fingers Of Funk, NYE, Berbati’s Pan | ]

Years before the Roots released their first album and a decade before the Dap Kings hit the scene, I was in a band called 5 Fingers Of Funk. Nine men strong with a full horn section and the incredible DJ Chill on the turntables, we lit up stages from coast to coast with a sound that was somewhere between A Tribe Called Quest and James Brown.

(If you don’t know, then you better borrow your cousin’s and check it out. I’m not gonna go on a whole tangent but messing around with an iPhone is like reaching into the future and hanging out with super attractive aliens at a hot party…or something.)
