And for those that noticed an uncanny resemblance between the artwork for “Get Down” and James Brown’s Plays Nothing But Soul EP circa ’68, please give yourself a warm round of applause. Taking some of the track’s production elements and scratch phrases into consideration, it was only right to credit the originator. And pay close attention to their gaze.. wonder what they’re both looking at, cause they seem to be staring in the exact same direction.
“I named my new son James Joseph Brown II. I think he’s going to be a lot better than I was.”
