Out of all of R&B's subgenres over the years, Funk is one of the most underrated. Funk may have fallen out of vogue in the 1980s, but it's contributions to the music scene still reverberate today. Hip-Hop's g-funk sound, which was popular with West Coast artists in the early-to-mid 1990s is based on Funk, and acts like the Red Hot Chili Peppers have carried the Funk sound forward in this decade. And on that note, your Guide to R&B presents his picks for the best Funk artists of all time.
George Clinton is known as the Godfather of Funk and is one of the longest-lasting artists ever in any music genre. In the 1970s he was the mastermind behind the innovative, groundbreaking bands Parliament and Funkadelic and played a significant part in the creation of numerous hit Funk songs, including "Flashlight" and "One Nation Under a Groove." He has also had success as a solo artist and is still an active performer today.
