Mystikal Pays Homage To The Godfather of Soul with single, Hit Me

Elements of hip hop represent a synthesis at its best. The way of life we love to bask in is a scaffold starting with archetypical musicians that were born in the 19th and 20th century. Although naysayers sometimes attempt to shun the foundational fathers of African American urban music, it’s merely an impossibility to separate the model embedded within us from the earliest soul and funk records.
James Brown, an American icon and trendsetter truly earned his moniker, “The Godfather Of Soul”.
Years later below the Mason-Dixon Line, New Orleans gave birth to “The Black Prince Of The South”.
So what’s the point?
The energy level first seen in our legendary superstar Brown manifested within “the man right chea”: Mystikal. His unique voice accompanied by New Orleans heavyweight producers Cise (Precise) and KLC fused smoothly with his repetitive ability to leave listeners and audiences in awe with catchy, comical tongue-twisting lyrics.
After years of success starting with Big Boy Records and No Limit Records, Mystikal is back on the scene.
So what’s this article about?
Mystikal’s ability to not only indirectly emulate the “Godfather of Soul” while still maintaining his uniqueness and originality, but his accountability as a creative. If one is really a hip hop connoisseur, then he will always pay homage to the roots of his craft.
Mystikal does a great job in representing and honoring the late James Brown with a KLC produced single, “Hit Me,” earning him a spot on the Rolling Stone Top 100 songs list of 2013.
The Heat Magazine wanted to point out this foreshadowing single as the world gets a closer look at the life of James Brown in the newly released blockbuster film, Get On Up. Be sure to check out the film and educate yourself on Brown who was a gem in American Music.

Last night the King of R&B R. Kelly was spotted celebrating his 47th birthday at STK Atlanta, while holding court with seven women. The group spared no expense, ordering rounds of Shellfish Platters, lemon drop shots and two bottles of Krug. Kelly then order the Chef’s specialty for dinner, Seabass with King Crab topping and Lobster Mac & Cheese.

Casually dressed in a black shirt, black pants, army green DOPE hat & signature sunglasses while indoors look. R. Kelly and his lady friends were having a great time singing, dancing and enjoying DJ Dillion – who they requested play some of his songs. R. Kelly just released his 12th studio album, Black Panties an homage to his debut album from 1993, 12 Play. Black Pantiesdebuted at #4 on the Billboard 200.

It was announced earlier that R. Kelly’s music video was delayed due to artist “mismanagement” by Lady Gaga’s team. R. Kelly seemed unaffected and in great spirits with fans.

Thanks Sylvester Lyons
