They were the band concept of innovative drummer Bill Curtis that wished to merge the "fatback" jazz beat of New Orleans into a funk band. They had seminal hits like "(Do The) Spanish Hustle", "I Like Girls", "Gotta Get My Hands on Some (Money)", and "Backstrokin'". Their 1979 single "King Tim III (Personality Jock)" is sometimes considered the first hip hop single.
Predominantly an R&B-based funk outfit, many claim their "King Tim III (Personality Jock)" was the first rap record.
I Found Lovin’ Lyrics. I played around with love before I was silly and you know that I played the fool But then you came into my life and you changed it Cause I know what I want and where it's at Yeah. I found lovin' Since I found you I'm in love with you I found lovin' Since I found you I'm in love with you I found lovin'. My sun rises on your face When I see that certain glow But.
