For your weekend viewing pleasure, two conversations with funk legend George Clinton. Last November, Clinton sat down with NPR Music for two interviews about his work. First, he spoke with Jason King of NPR Music's R&B channel about soul music, swag and Kendrick Lamar. Later, he was interviewed by songwriter, producer and musician James Mtume.
