Master Class with Robert Shahid: Funk Legend Rick James


(WEAA) — Award-winning journalist Charles Robinson and broadcaster Paul Porter, author of ‘BLACKOUT: My 40 Years in the Music Business’ join Robert Shahid to celebrate the funk legend, Rick James. 


Following the release of Showtime documentary, 'Bitchin': The Sound and Fury of Rick James, which chronicles the sex-and-drugs-fueled lifestyle of the King of Punk Funk, Shahid, Robinson and Porter take a deep dive into the life of the R&B/pop musician and share "behind the scenes" experiences that aren’t revealed in the film.
