I was browsing the Soundcloud as you do when I stumble across this funky dash brilliant dash cross that and make that awesome Notorious B.I.G. mashup with what seemed an obscure soul & funk tune in the background. It’s Eddie Bo, born 1930. No wonder it seemed unknown to me. But none the less, that’s what I love when I discover new tunes. I like to dig further, so I’ve included some Wikipedia content for your information. Also, I have added the original track in for good measure so you can show off to friends…
