Super Freak Rick James 8/6

Rick James "Master of Funk" passed away. He's had some health issues recently so maybe he didn't die of an overdose. Somewhere Dave Chappelle is shedding a tear.

Goodbye Rick James
Crack and cocaine knew you well
You liked those freaky girls
As your hit song sure would tell
You crawled out of Buffalo
Joined the Navy and a band
Decided to go to Canada
Then you were on the lam again

And it seemed to me that you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing when to say no
When new drugs came out again
And I bet if they cremate you my friend
The could smoke you ashes
And get high once again
