Hi. We recently created AFH TV, Ambrosia For Heads’ streaming video service, because we believe real Hip-Hop deserves its own dedicated TV home, but we need your help to make it great. Please subscribe to AFH TV. It is only $1.99/month or $12/year, and already features some amazing content, but the best is yet to come. Thank you for all of your support.

Morris Day is a legend of Funk and R&B that has not done much in the way of Hip-Hop collaboration. Slug & Murs named a song after The Time front-man, and he’s been shouted out in legions of lyrics (from D12 to Nas, Wale to Jean Grae). However, short of Ice Cube affiliate K-Dee’s “Gigolos Get Lonely Too” back in 1994 rehashing The Time’s 1982 cut of the same name, the 59-year-old Twin Cities native has been a bit reclusive when it comes to his music, let alone grooving with others.

That changes when Morris Day links with Snoop Dogg. “One Night Stand” is self-explanatory subject matter, as two masters of seduction make an anthem about no-strings-attached love. The music is busy, with splashes of synth, distorted vocals, and a Funk pocket. It’s a players ball. The song is produced by 1500 Or Nothin (The Game, Lupe Fiasco, T.I.).

Snoop has worked with a who’s who of ’70s and ’80s Funk and R&B musicians during his career. George Clinton, The Gap Band, The Dramatics, Babyface, and The Isley Brothers are just a few examples. In 2008, during his Ego Trippin’ campaign, Snoop covered a 1981 hit by The Time, “Cool.” 

Earlier this year, Morris Day released single “Over That Rainbow” as a dedication to his friend and collaborator, Prince. He collaborated with Bruno Mars during 2017’s Grammy Awards in a tribute.

Less than one month ago, Snoop released eight-song EP, Make America Crip Again.
