(AllHipHop News) California based emcee and activist, Unity Lewis, has joined forces with funk icon George Clinton.
In addition to George Clinton, Unity has acquired the music of Sly Stone, and P Funk Allstar, Sheila Brody aka Amuka, to bring you the visuals for "Free the Funk."
In the new video, Clinton and Lewis tackle the issue of copyright infringement, something close to Clinton's heart and something he has battled much of his career.
The track appropriately also features Sly Stone, who has had his own issues with copyright and sampling during his career.
'Free the Funk' is off the LP, <em>7th Dynasty</em>, which will be released on Arts and Entertainment on May 20.
The project is produced by Oakland's Egon Brainparts of the production team Bossasaurus.
Other features on 7th Dynasty include up and coming rapper Holly Saucy and Bay Area legend Rappin’ 4-Tay.
All proceeds made from this project will go directly to the artists.
