Sons of Funk

Biography

The Sons of Funk may be the No Limit reaction to Boyz II Guys. Hailing through the Bay Region, the quartet sings raunchy R&B using a gangsta advantage, sounding such as a cross types of Boyz II Guys, R. Kelly, Dr. Dre and, needless to say, Get better at P. The Sons of Funk released their debut record, THE OVERALL GAME of Funk, within the springtime of 1998.

#Quote
1 [on how he made a name for himself in Japan] How many times did they see Antonio Inoki stretching some dude on the front page compared to how many times they saw some idiot--me--bleeding a gusher with barbed wire wrapped around his throat?
2 [on the riots that would start after his matches ended] The riots were a form of flattery. The greatest thing for a bad guy wrestler is to do your job so well that someone wants to kill you. What could be more wonderful?
3 [on why he refused to press charges against fans who tried to injure or kill him] I mean, do I want to put someone in jail because I convinced him or her that I needed to die? That's how I look at it and that may be sick, but it's also beautiful.
