Rappers Snoop Dogg, Chuck D, Phil Aide and many others, will accompany legendary bassist Bootsy Collins for his upcoming album “The Funk Capitol of the World.”

Between his work with James Brown and Parliament, Collins has been sampled numerous times, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has also been featured on a few Hip Hop albums, such as Snoop Dogg’s Rhythm & Gangsta.

In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Bootsy Collins said,

“In 2008 we went out and did a tribute to James Brown tour with as many of the JB’s together as I could.  That really got me thinking about all these great cats who are no longer around and how people are just forgetting about them, and the music is becoming so watered down now.”

“We’re forgetting the ones that really opened the door. Since I’m still here, I really wanted to connect those dots, so young people can see that what they think is so new isn’t so new.”

Snoop, Cube and Chuck D are featured together on the track “Hip Hop @ Funk U,” while the album will be released April 26 on Mascot Records.
