Punch-drunk P-funk: Collins lets fly with vid game theme song


St. Petersburg, Fla. — Bootsy Collins has produced an exclusive original theme song that sets the mood for 2K Sports' "Don King Presents: Prizefighter" video game, due in stores June 10.

"Doing the game track was very exciting," the funk legend said. "It's for Don King, a hero of mine from way back, so I took it very personal when asked to get involved. I felt musically and vocally that this song would place you right in the middle of the game, in a front row seat. I told Mr. King, 'We gonna punch 'em! Just to make their hair stand straight. Then punch 'em again, to see the look on their face!' "

More than 70 rock, rap, metal, soul and funk cuts songs appear on the soundtrack. (partialdiff)
