Today, 7 Days of Funk (Dam-Funk and Snoopzilla) debut the first official music video “Faden Away,” from their forthcoming self-titled project, 7 Days of Funk.
Directed by Henry DeMaio, the visuals capture the performance of Snoopzilla (Snoop Dogg) and Dam-Funk rocking a hyped crowd at a Los Angeles underground party. Snoopzilla sports a Jehri-curl inspired by 80’s funk icons like Roger Troutman, Rick James and Uncle Jamm’s Army. Dam-Funk lays down the funk with his instrument of choice – the shoulder synth aka “keytar”.
The record drops December 10 | 7 DAYS OF FUNK
7 Days of Funk is a collaboration between Dam-Funk and Snoopzilla (the legendary Snoop Dogg). The album is set for release December 10, 2013 on Stones Throw Records. The new group, 7 Days of Funk, is a result of the two artists bonding over the love of Funk.
The King of Modern Funk meets the smoked-out scion of G-Funk on the 7 Days of Funk album, where Snoop performs under the name Snoopzilla, the homage to the legendary funk master, Bootsy Collins, who often went by the moniker Bootzilla. After an initial chance meeting two years ago, Dam and Snoop began to collaborate when Snoop invited Dam to perform with him at a 2011 SXSW show —the musical connection was inherent.
Aside from a guest spot from Daz and Kurupt and Steve Arrington, it’s just Snoopzilla and Dam jamming—melding loose toasts, vicious rhymes, Macadamia smooth singing and gorgeous chord progressions. As Snoopzilla says on “Faden Away,” “Me and Dam-Funk captured the funk.”
