About My Thang

"My Thang" is a funk song written and recorded by James Brown. Unlike most of his songs, this song was released not as a two-part single, but instead issued with three different B-sides. It spent two weeks at number one on the R&B singles chart - Brown's second #1 in a row, following "The Payback" - and reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 1974. The song also appeared on Brown's 1974 double album Hell."My Thang" was also sampled on various Hip-Hop songs, including "Brand New Funk" by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince and "Funky Child" by Lords Of The Underground among others. The song was featured in the 1990 psychological horror film Jacob's Ladder.
