I dont watch BET let alone pay any mind to their award shows. I came across this video from this years awards which features cyphers being led by DJ Premier looping the break from James Brown's Funky Drummer. BET was once a great place for real Hip Hop but it now lacks any content that worth mentioning. So it was a suprise to see them put out something like this on thier award show.

It appears that the funky styles of James Brown and Charles Wright surely made their way across the US borders. Coming from the heart of Mexico's D.F. comes Rabbits and Carrots. Don't let the name fool you as these guys lay down some heavy Spanish covers of funk classics.
