posted by on July 1 at 22:47 PM

Cosby commented on James Brownís Black Caesar album saying:

Itís amazing, especially considering it is built of so-called JB ‘filler’ material (ďThe BossĒ is a disposable b-side? Whoa.)

And “The Payback” was rejected by the makers of the movie ďHell Up in HarlemĒ for being not funky enough.

Thank you, Cosby. It goes to show that you can learn something new about James Brown every day. Like that some people back in the day didnít think he was funky enough. Thatís like saying water isnít wet.

luckily, the edwin starr soundtrack to 'hell up in harlem' was decent, but dissing 'the payback' is UNREAL. when you diss james, you diss yourself.

@5:
believe it or not, i was going to mention it; but i'd personally be weirded out by people talking about my family. dude definitely deserves credit, probably moreso than edwin starr.
