7 Days Of Funk is comprised of Snoopzilla (better known as rapper/singer Snoop Dogg) and modern-funk musician Dâm-Funk. Their eponymous debut album was inspired by the work of '70s psychedelic soul outfit Funkadelic and Snoop's 'Snoopzilla' moniker is is a play on the band's iconic bassist Bootsy Collins' nickname Bootzilla. Snoop told Rolling Stone: "We're the babies of the Mothership. I've had funk influences in my music my whole career. Dâm-Funk is cold. He's keeping the funk alive and I knew I had to get down with him."
Bootsy Collins supplied guest vocals on this song.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
"I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me) " borrows four bars from Notorious B.I.G's "The World Is Filled." Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls attended Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York at the same time.
