Raised on P-Funk and schooled in New Jack, Wallpaper mastermind Eric Frederic didn't always envision the project reflecting these influences. He initially conceived Wallpaper as an experiment in pop satire. But at the height of Oakland's 'Hyphy Movement,' something changed. 'I saw musicians representing that Bay Area sound. That same psychadelic, drippy funk, and care free approach that had been around since Sly Stone all the way to Digital Underground was re-surfacing. I needed to pay tribute.'
'I got soul! I'm so wasted!'
