A Different FUNKIN’ Perspective on SLY/ Words from ZEK aka Cecil Womack

A Different FUNKIN’ Perspective on SLY/ Words from ZEK aka Cecil Womack

 
 
Recent reports would have us believe that Sly Stone is destitute and homeless. Although the now Michael Jackson Estate owns the publishing of Sly Stone’s music, he still has ownership as a writer.
