GEORGE CLINTON ON COCAINE RAP
The Funkadelic and Parliament maestro is charged with 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.
