George Clinton has a long and wild history with Miami. Not only did he snort giant mountains of coke in Brickell's Four Ambassadors Hotel while George H.W. Bush declared his War on Drugs from inside the same building, but he also cooked a giant crack rock here that he refused to smoke until the end of the Atomic Dog tour.
The Magic City is where he launched the famous fishing trips to Bimini with Bootsy Collins that inspired Parliament's Motor Booty Affair album. And Clinton often recorded at Criteria Studios (now Hit Factory) in North Miami. He even used to get his hair done in Coconut Grove. Now he's back to get his feet wet on Miami Beach by celebrating the 30th anniversary of Winter Music Conference with the official drop of the Little Louie Vega remix to his latest hit, “Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain't That Funkin' Kinda Hard on You?”
