The funk runs deep and rich on 'World Wide Funk,' Bootsy Collins' first studio album since 2011's 'Tha Funk Capital of the World'. Populated with musical friends old and new, and recorded in his Cincinnati home's Bootzilla Re-hab studio, 'World Wide Funk' marks both a reckoning and significant reboot, if you will. Blue-chip rappers like Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane, DJ Quik, Dru Down, and Chuck D, along with guitar shedder Buckethead join a Bootsy-curated posse of fresh new artists on a record that embraces everything from the classic P-Funk sound Bootsy pioneered to the closest Collins has ever come to radio-active, boots on the ground friendly fire in a musical-P-rated-adventure. 'World Wide Funk' will be released worldwide on Mascot Records on October 27 (October 26th here at Grimey's!)
