Today, 7 Days of Funk (Dam-Funk and Snoopzilla) release their self-titled album and debut their second music video, “Hit Da Pavement.” The video follows the further adventures of Dam and Snoop after the house party featured in the video for “Faden Away.” This time, we ride along with the pair as they cruise the streets of Los Angeles in Snoop’s baby blue Lincoln Continental.
After performing last night on Conan, 7 Days Of Funk performs “Faden Away” live on The Queen Latifah show on CBS at 2pm.
Tonight, Stones Throw is hosting a release party at The Exchange in downtown Los Angeles with performances by 7 Days Of Funk, Bootsy Collins, Egyptian Lover, Peanut Butter Wolf, and Steve Arrington. Info and tickets.
7 Days of Funk is a collaboration between Dam-Funk and Snoopzilla (the legendary Snoop Dogg). The album is out today on Stones Throw Records. The new group, 7 Days of Funk, is a result of the two artists bonding over the love of Funk.
The King of Modern Funk meets the smoked-out Scion of G-Funk on the 7 Days of Funk album, where Snoop performs under the name Snoopzilla, the homage to the legendary funk master, Bootsy Collins, who often went by the moniker Bootzilla. After an initial chance meeting two years ago, Dam and Snoop began to collaborate when Snoop invited Dam to perform with him at a 2011 SXSW show – the musical connection was inherent.
Aside from a guest spot from Daz and Kurupt and Steve Arrington, it’s just Snoopzilla and Dam jamming – melding loose toasts, vicious rhymes, Macadamia smooth singing and gorgeous chord progressions. As Snoopzilla says on “Faden Away,” “Me and Dam-Funk captured the funk.”
