b.Funk, like The Weeknd, is not the most traditional pick for Freshman Predictions, as b.FUNK is a full band. But, considering b.FUNK's lead singer Brian Cole is as good of an emcee as there is in hip-hop, it's hard to keep them off this list. b.FUNK's probably the most musically diverse pick of the entire 2012 group. And it's easily conceivable that b.FUNK's a once in a generation kind of hip-hop group. My addiction to The Roots and Gym Class Heroes has been replaced by the sounds of New Jersey's dopest hip-hop group. - TheJourneyThroughLawSchool.com


b.FUNK is not like anything you have heard before, in fact the band's name alone is enough to describe their sound, pure funk.
To describe these guys as a "rap rock band", not unlike The Roots, would not be doing them justice. Each member of this band throws down everytime they touch an instrument, or pic up a microphone, and kick painful grooves to break your neck. Picture Funkadelic if George Clinton had decided to rap.
Having already opened for rap legends Ice Cube, and Slick Rick, these guys are on the up and up, and red hot to say the least. Get your ass to a show and be prepared to be cole cocked, and rocked fast by the energy of b.FUNK.

Bio

b.FUNK is the organic formula for the chemical reaction you call hip-hop. There is tremendous flavor within this group of two Jazz players, a true MC, a touch of latin and a smack of rock (not crack rock). 

b.FUNK plans to return to NXNE 2014, after a highly successful outing in 2013. The journey has just begun, and the b.FUNK band aint nothing to FUNK with!
