James Brown Pt. 1

A lover of shotguns, gumbo, and traveling to gigs on his private jet, James Brown – nicknamed "Mr. Dynamite" – was renowned for his infectious voice and unbelievable dance moves, earning a reputation as the hardest-working man in show business. Between his womanizing ways, perfectionist attitude and daredevil style, he built an empire that went far beyond entertaining, often alienating musicians and business partners along the way. With hit singles like "Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud," Brown reached new heights within the black community in the tumultuous 1960s, capturing the attention of the FBI along the way.
