We've spent this week gettin' funky with the music of George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic.  Few groups influenced hip hop music the way P-Funk did, and today's sample example features a group who could be called the "sons of P-Funk".  I'm talking about Digital Underground.

From their style of dress, to the way the make music, you can draw a direct line from P-Funk to Digital Underground.  They have collaborated with George several times over the years, and have sampled his music throughout thier career. The 1989 hit "Humpty Dance" is a great example of this...

The main melody for this track, comes from the Parliament song "Let's Play House".
