Sad news to report about George Clinton.

Would you believe the funkmeister is being forced to give up the funk. Literally.

Clinton’s ex-lawyers have forced the music legend to hand over four classic recordings to pay off the million bucks he owes the law firm , reports TMZ.

According to court docs, Hendricks & Lewis won a $1.5 million judgment against Clinton back in 2010, but was only able to collect $340,000 — so a Federal Judge just hit GC where it hurts … his music.

In the docs, the judge grants H&L the copyrights for the following Funkadelic jams:

  – “Hardcore Jollies”

    – “The Electric Spanking of War Babies”

    – “Uncle Jam Wants You”

    – “One Nation Under A Groove”

According to the ruling, H&L can sell or use the music however it wants — with all money going toward paying back the original judgment.

Once that’s paid off, the copyrights go back to Clinton … who has filed a motion to reverse the decision. No ruling on that yet.
