Rick James Pt. 1

The self-proclaimed "King of Punk Funk," Rick James came from humble beginnings in Buffalo before hooking up with Neil Young while dodging the draft in Canada. With a penchant for pyrotechnics, glitter, custom boots and marijuana, his quest to become a black rock star reached its apex when a throwaway song, "Super Freak," topped the charts and gave him the fame he'd dreamt of.
