With over 70 studio albums to his name, James Brown truly earned his moniker as “The Hardest Working Man In Show Business“. Truth be told, we all owe something to the man who provided a wealth of samples for future DJ’s & producers to jump on & ultimately helped birth a genre. It’s been 41 years since he dropped the now classic funk joint “The Payback” & we’re still getting down with his work, this time through the sounds of Seattle native Romaro Franceswa.
As a member of The Emerald City’s Yuk The World crew, he’s been able to hone his craft of the independent circuit, but now he’s poised to make big moves with his take on the classic. Entitled “The Big Payback“, the video plays out like an overblown rap battle with Romaro taking shots at all of his competitors, both small time rookies & household names alike. Full of shots depicting nuns getting busy & Romaro lyrically assaulting his foes, it’s an insight of the emcee’s ability to make jokes & spit them just as quick.
“The Big Payback” is featured on Romaro’s recently released ‘Black King‘ LP…Keep an eye out for Romaro as the Federal Way native makes his way into the limelight!!!
