GEORGE CLINTON ON COCAINE RAP
GEORGE CLINTON, the legendary funk pioneer and founder member of PARLIAMENT and FUNKADELIC, was arrested on Saturday (December 6) and charged with cocaine possession.

The star was picked up outside of an Apalachee Parkway Circle K convenience store in Tallahassee, Florida after police discovered him sitting in a Gold Nissan Sentra smoking what appeared to be a cigar.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper, police say they found a bag containing a substance that field-tested positive for cocaine and that the 'cigar' turned out to be a glass pipe - commonly used to smoke crack.

Parliament, which later became Funkadelic in the 1970s, are most famous for their hits including 'One Nation Under A Groove', 'Flashlight' and 'Atomic Dog'. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
