GET DOWN: THE INFLUENCE OF JAMES BROWN
EPISODIO 3 «THE PAYBACK»

In this third and final episode of the three-part miniseries, we explore James Brown’s third most sampled song, «The Payback.» Narrated by the legendary Patrice Rushen (Artist, Composer, and Musician), this episode explores the story behind how the ultimate revenge song was created and the many displays and influence it has had on hip-hop music culture. Where «Funky Drummer» provided one of hip-hop’s most iconic drum breaks, and «Funky President» provided the social conscience, «The Payback», well, Payback brought the swagger!

DESIGN AND ANIMATION

In the third and final episode focusing on «The Payback», the definitive song about revenge, we include elements rescued from the blaxploitation films to illustrate some of the concepts related in the video.
