"The Ohio Players" Founder Walter "Junie" Morrison Dead at 62

Walter “Junie” Morrison, the founder of the legendary funk band The Ohio Players, has died at the age of 62. He is one of the structural fathers of funk; he was a producer, writer, keyboardist, and vocalist.

Morrison was the brainchild behind The Ohio Players’ albums, Pain, Pleasure, and Ecstasy, as well as the often sampled 1972 hit song “Funky Worm” which he arranged and co-wrote. He left the band in 1974 and released three solo albums, When We Do, Freeze, and Suzie Supergroupie between 1975 and 1976. He then went on to join Parliament and Funkadelic. With Funkadelic, Morrison co-wrote “One Nation Under a Groove,” alongside George Clinton and guitarist Garry Shider. The 1978 dance title track was the ensemble’s biggest hit, reaching Number 28 on the Hot 100. It paved the way for future success with the group.

“Junie was a fascinating person to work with,” Clinton wrote in his 2014 memoir, Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You?, “He could do it all, and if you weren’t careful, he would. When he made a record, his preference was to put down the bass, then the guitar, then the keyboards, then the drums. That was fantastic for demos. He could do brilliant things while you weren’t looking. … With Funkadelic, he put himself back in the group environment, and it started to pay dividends immediately.”

Morrison went on to produce for other artists throughout the ’90s. Some younger fans may also be familiar with him as the person Solange paid tribute to on her Grammy Award-winning project, A Seat at the Table. His last solo album, When the City, was released on his own label, Juniefunk, in 2014.

In 1997, Morrison was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Funkadelic. He is known as an imaginative music legend. The details surrounding his death have not yet been made public.

Stream Jidenna’s Debut Album ‘The Chief’

All hail The Chief. Two years after breaking onto the scene with “Classic Man,” Jidenna unleashes his debut album.

The 14-track project features “Little Bit More” and “The Let Out,” as well as collaborations with his Wondaland labelmates Janelle Monáe and St. Beauty (“Safari”) and Roman GianArthur (“Long Live the Chief”).

But the album isn’t just a collection of bangers for Jidenna, who says it’s also largely autobiographical. “The Chief is a story of manhood,” he told KMEL, “the story of me coming into my manhood after my father passed and the trials and tribulations I had on that journey.”

That story will be told through a diverse body of work. “There’s a lifetime of stories in one album as opposed to some albums you hear today [described like] ‘It’s a vibe,’” he added. “That’s a cool way of saying it’s the same song for 14 tracks. This is not that. I’ve lived in too many places to make the same song back to back.”

Back in 2015, Jidenna spoke with Rap-Up about the project, which was then slated for release in 2016. “You can expect swank,” he said at the time. “You can expect an album that feels like the adventures of classic man. What does a classic man do when he’s in his hotel? What does he do when he explores South Central L.A. all the way to Dubai? You can expect the best album in 2016, hands down, feet down.”

Stream Future’s New Album ‘Future’

The Future is here.

Less than a week after being announced, Future’s self-titled fifth studio album arrives with no features and plenty of Hendrix.

“All my energy, I want to put it in my music,” he told Beats 1. “I want you to hear this and say, ‘He gave us all of him.’…You’re gonna be able to hear the completeness of it, the sound, where I’m at, my voice, my tone, my wordplay, everything that’s going on around me, I was able to create off it, to be inspired by so many moments that were happening.”

According to Future, this is also a clear reflection of who he is today. “I want to be able to speak on how I’m living now, more so,” he said. “I want to be authentic to what I am now, true to what I am, to be able to tell you, to get you from where you’re at, to get to where I am now, to this position…It’s like a fresh start.”

Unleashed through Epic Records/A1/Freebandz, the 17-song project allows Future to serve what he’s been cooking since the release of last year’s Purple Reign and EVOL. “I was preparing the feast,” he tweeted. “U walked away from the table too soon.”

Future’s latest release also comes before he heads out on the “Nobody Safe Tour” with Migos, Tory Lanez and Kodak Black. The run begins May 4 in Memphis and runs through June 30 in Las Vegas with Young Thug and A$AP Ferg on select dates.
