Format:Audio CD
George Clinton is literally the epidemy of all that is funk. It don't get no better than George and Co. This is the CD that started me on my way to the land of Funkadelica. That is what it is good for, being a starter CD. I kindof like the idea of redoing some classics (i.e. Flashlight..etc) but they aren't the best redos. I am not very fond of his use of big name rappers on some of the mixes. Flashlight is ok with Q-tip and Busta Rhymes, but ODB totally ruins it for me. He wouldn't know funk if it slapped him in the face. I don't think that even a shot from the Bop Gun would save this guy from the Anti-Funkland. Some of the songs are fun to just listen to in the background while doing something, there is definatly not a shortage of deep thumpin' beats here.
I'm also not real sure what is up with this compilation's "Bop Gun". It isn't a remake of the origanol Bop Gun, it is a remake of "One Nation Under a Groove" with Ice Cube rapping, but non-the-less it is still a pretty good song.
If you would a little squirt of George Clinton's music, give Greatest Funkin' Hits a shot. It is good if you don't want to go out and buy over $300 worth of Parliament/Funkadelic CD's to get the full effect of his music. (that is what I did a couple weeks after buying this album. I spent 3/4 of my paycheck buying every Parliament, Funkadelic, Bootsy Collins, P-Funk album that I could get my hands on)
To you true Funkateers out there, you probably don't need this album, but if you want a twist on some of his music, get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Da bomb! June 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD features a collection of George Clinton classics covered by rappers like Coolio, Busta Rhymes, and Digital Underground. Some funk purists may hate it, but you can't deny that the rap guys bring a raw energy to tracks like "Flashlight" that makes these remade grooves eminently listenable. Check out "Booty Body Ready for the Plush Funk"; listen to that bass line--it's pure Bootsy. Or "Bop Gun" -- listen how Ice Cube has internalized Clinton's inner dialogue from albums like "Funkentelechy" and "Gloryhallastoopid", remixed it and shipped it back to us first class. Everything is there (except maybe "Sir Nose d'Avoidoffunk" and we'll catch him next time).
Of course the rappers bring their own style with them, but their love and admiration for Clinton shines through always. This is more than sampling; this is a hommage to the man who made funk what it is.

1.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Funkin Hit's NOT! October 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was not the a CD with the original hits I was looking for. I wanted to hear Parliament, not Ice Cube, ODB, Digital Underground, etc. This was a CD full of remixes. If you want to hear old school with artists from the new school chimming in --buy it. If not, you'll either have to buy the deluxe box set for over a hundred, or buy a whole cd for one song. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a CD with all 4 of my favorites on it: Knee Deep, One Nation, Atomic Dog, Flashlight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fool Master George Gets Extra Funk July 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Fool Master George (my affectionate pet name for G/C)gets quite raw and funky with a little help from the current generation of rappers. Hardcore funk fans may consider this to be musical blasphemy, but to my ears it works. As much as I despise Ice Cube and much of what he stood for in the 90s, I like his take on "Bop Gun." Clinton comes off like a proud papa watching his sons of funk Naughty By Nature, Digital Underground, and the rest work it with his stuff. A good funky listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your father's funk July 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
While not the best of George Clinton, as I have seen him morph over the years, but a very good effort. My wife somehow "misplaced" this CD so I had to search high and low to get a replacent, but I am enjoying it as much as I did the first time hearing it.

This CD is not the funk that you grew up with, or would be used to, but you cannot deny what the rappers bring to the table. It adds an edge to it that makes it fun and fresh, even in today's hip hop days. It is definitely one that is a keeper, from the remix of atomic dog to fries with that shake, George CLinton manages to make this one good "contempory funk" CD that is worthy of your collection. Listen to it more than once, it deserves that much.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUCH TRUTHFUL LYRICS!!! February 10, 2004
By Scraps
Format:Audio CD
I would have to say the song that stood out for me on this CD is Atomic Dog (for obvious reasons). I was amazed that a human being could write those lyrics!
I mean , the part about "the dog that chases his tail will be dizzy." Oh man, how true is that? Guilty as charged!
And I also don't know what makes me want to chase cats, but I do!!! Why must I feel like that?
Oh, it's so nice for someone to finally capture my feelings in a song.
Bow wow wow yippee yo yippee yay, indeed!
