Rick James (born James Ambrose Johnson Jr. February 1, 1948 – August 6, 2004) was an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Popular in the late 1970s

In 1977, James started a solo career. His debut album Come and Get It!, including the singles “You and I” and “Mary Jane,” catapulted him to stardom. Famous for his wild brand of danceable funk music and his trademark braids, James was often referred to as The King of Punk-Funk.

His biggest hit, the Grammy-nominated “Super Freak,” was released in 1981 on the album Street Songs, which included other popular singles like “Give It to Me Baby,” “Fire and Desire” and “Ghetto Life.” Subsequent hits included “Teardrops,” “Cold Blooded” and “Glow.”

Give It To Me BabySuper Freak


“Give It To Me Baby”

When I came home last night
You wouldn’t make love to me
You went fast asleep
You wouldn’t even talk to me
said I’m so crazy
Coming home intoxicated
I said I just wanna love ya
(I just wanna love ya baby)
Guess that’s why I’m so elated (C’mon girl)

Give it to me baby (give to me baby)
