Street Songs

Street Songs is the fifth album by American musician Rick James, released in April 1981 via Gordy Records. “Give It to Me Baby”, the lead song and single from the album, became James’ second number one single on the R&B chart. It spent five weeks at the top spot. The fifth song on the album, “Super Freak”, was also one of James’ biggest hits. A Deluxe Edition was released in 2001 containing an additional 17 mixes and live versions of the album tracks. Although the song “Fire and Desire” (a duet he performed with singer Teena Marie) was not originally released as a single, the song itself received much airplay on R&B radio stations and has since become a classic hit. (James and Marie would reunite to perform the song at the 2004 BET Awards a few months before James’ death.)

The song “Ghetto Life” was featured in the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and later sampled in both Busta Rhymes’ song “In the Ghetto” & Tha Eastsidaz’s song “Ghetto”. “Super Freak” and “Give It to Me Baby” are also featured on the soundtrack of the video game Scarface: The World Is Yours. The song “Give It To Me Baby” is featured on EA’s Skate, Activison’s DJ Hero and Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V.
