James Brown, GOAT

I'm not sure interviews get better than this James Brown interview from shortly after he was arrested for assaulting his wife in 1988.

“Have all the charges ben dropped?”

“Yeah, I'm out on love.”

It's like he's Flavor Flav's spirit animal. RIP, JB.

Haha cocaine is a hell of a drug. Looks like he was visiting Rick James pretty frequently.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

This exchange (2:35) made me laugh:

Sonya: "The women love you when you get out there, why is that?"
[...]
James Brown: "Cuz I look good, I smell good, I feel good...and make love good."

Followed directly by this question and answer:

Sonya: "Now you're involved in publishing a gospel magazine, tell us a little bit about that."

James Brown: "The Second Coming."

Classic. You can't make this stuff up.

Need James Brown as a color commentator during a game, would be hilarious.

It's a man's world! She probably wanted to beat his ass after that and the fact he shot at his wife.

There was a time...

Love JB. The man was entertaining on and off stage.

If you haven't seen this,  this is bad ass.  You wouldn't think it would be,  but the two blend together perfectly.
