"P. Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)" is a funk song by Parliament. It is the first track on their 1975 album "Mothership Connection" and was the first single to be released from the album. It was also released as the B-side of the album's second single, "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)". It reached number 33 on the U.S. R&B chart. "Mothership Connection" is the fourth album by American funk band Parliament, released in 1975. This concept album of P-Funk mythology is usually rated as one of Parliament's best. "Mothership Connection" was the first P-Funk album to feature Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley, who had left The J.B.'s, James Brown's backing band. "Mothership Connection" became Parliament's first album to be certified gold and later platinum. In 2003 the TV network VH1 named "Mothership Connection" the 55th greatest album of all time. Parliament was a funk band most prominent during the 1970s. It and its sister act Funkadelic, both led by George Clinton, began the funk music culture of that decade. George Clinton (born July 22, 1941) is an American singer, songwriter, bandleader, and music producer and the principal architect of P-Funk. He was the mastermind of the bands Parliament and Funkadelic during the 1970s and early 1980s, and began his work as a solo artist in 1981. He has been called one of the most prominent innovators of funk music. Clinton became a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, after being inducted in 1997 with fifteen other members of Parliament-Funkadelic.
