Karriem Riggins – “Chopped Worm” (Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner Tribute)

karriem-riggins-chopped-wormLast week, the world lost Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner of the Ohio Players. And to pay homage to the legendary frontman, Karriem Riggins hit the studio and found inspiration in the Players’ “Funky Worm”. The oft-sampled cut finds new life here in “Chopped Worm”, a hypnotizing trip through dusty drum loops and wild guitar licks. Here’s what Riggins wrote about the track:

“My idea was to chop a song that is so important to hip hop and also pay homage to 1 of the funkiest groups from one of the funkiest states. Ohio Players’ music will forever be relevant! RIP Sugarfoot.”
