"Party On Plastic (What's Bootsy Doin'?)" By Bootsy Collins

Here's a nasty chunk of funk that Bootsy dropped in 1988. It was cool to know that the legendary bass man was still keepin' things good and funky in the late '80s. The intro features a nice old school-style rap by female singing/rap duo Pretty Fatt. And Bootsy lays down a massive Space Bass solo. The song's intentionally cheesy video is a lot of fun and features a giant Bootzilla terrorizing Japan with his monster funk.

The track rose to #27 on Billboard's R&B singles chart. It was a single from Bootsy's album What's Bootsy Doin'? (1988). This was the ace funkster's first album after a six-year hiatus from the music scene. On this album, Bootsy reunites with fellow P-Funk alums Bernie Worrell, Fred Wesley and Gary "Mudbone" Cooper. The album also features newcomers such as Mico Wave and Godmoma. Bootsy's late brother, Catfish, also appears on the album.
