If you have been into the deep funk game, then you are aware of the blog Funk For The People. Run by Robert Perlman since 2009, it is the deepest funk site around. Posting up label scans and mp3s, Perlman has garnished a cult following. The everyday man and known producers and DJs check the site on the daily to get the black gold he drops. It’s not just today either. Perlman was responsible for lacing the Beastie Boys with records on several albums. They honored him with the lyric: “Perlman’s’s got beats and it ain’t no secret.” They weren’t kidding, either.
Perlman’s’s got beats and it ain’t no secret.
