Thanks. The Dr’s book was really good. But, it only scratched the surface, especially during the peak commercial years. These books about the girls are gonna blow the cobwebs off our minds with the real deal and not the dildo (as the Queen used to tell me).
Speaking of which. There’s a lot of folks out here nowadays walking around talking about they are the Queen of Funk. A lot of journalists are naming them that. They may be a queen of it. But there is only one Queen Of Funk.

That book has had some years in the making. Looking forward for it to drop.

I agree that the Queen Of Funk today is Dawn Silva no doubt, but realistically there’s only one Queen Of Funk and that’s Malliah Franklin.

No disrespect to Dawn at all. I’m mostly concerned about all these articles u see in the press. I recall somebody calling Chaka the Queen Of Funk. She funky for sure. But the original Queen will always be Mal God rest her soul. Mallia was like a female version of George. A true visionary. Dawn got that visionary spirit too. A true funkstress. Sheroe. And they all are unsung. Muggs don’t know what time it is. When I was in radio the original “Funkentercepter” came by the station one night to do some drops. Man she started getting that spirit it was like being in presence of an angel or somn.

It’s finally possible to pre-order Dawn’s book over at dawnsilva.com. It’s planned to be released in late February. Seems like they changed the title to just The Funk Queen.

The price is $100. Pretty steep. But it got over 500 pages and over 300 photos. Not bad at all.

Here’s some images of the book from her site.



Check this fb video where Dawn presents the book. It’s huge!!
