Ain’t it funky, y’all. Welcome to another edition of Mixtape Monday, this one specially dedicated to the Godfather of Soul James Brown. And in celebration of the late great’s birthday (true it was Sunday, but we digress) We’re proud to bring you the world premiere of one of the grooviest sets we’ve ever heard. Yes, here for you is J. Period and Black Thought‘s live James Brown tribute mix.

Over 34 minutes of vintage JB cuts, Thought spits straight fire while sir Period chops and screws, jumping from break to break, jostling the guitar and horns just so. Beyond that funk we’ve got hip-hop gold, courtesy of Wicked‘s Gang Starr mix, some springtime bossa nova via Music Is My Sanctuary, a little African, a little more hip-hop and plenty of modern funk. Stick with us as we count it off–the week’s about to get on the good foot.
