Before Bootsy Collins helped usher in the era of funk, he played bass for James Brown and George Clinton's Parliament Funkadelic. Now he's back with a new album called "Tha Funk Capital of The World." Collins blends hip-hop, spoken word and Latin flavor with the classic soul and funk for which he is known.
