Singer. Innovator. Visionary. Superfreak. Rick James was all this and more, a man whose talent and accomplishments exceed the capabilities of words. In ancient Rome he would have been known as Invencencicoramus Laudorantio, and the historical records of that great empire would have shown a nation decked out in jheri curls and eye makeup, gettin' down with their bad selves. James' artistic muse produced generational anthems "Superfreak," "Give It To Me Baby" and "Ebony Eyes" in that dizzying pinnacle of artistic fervor, the late '70s and early '80s. Who reworked "Superfreak" into a rap standard?
