Yesterday, Parliament-Funkadelic mastermind George Clinton did a Reddit Ask Me Anything, where the 76-year-old fielded questions about his musical catalog, his cameo in the 1994 stoner comedy PCU ("Everybody on the set was fucked up. Toronto had the best weed around. Fuck the beer."), and also "Psychoalphadiscobetabioaquadooloop."

When asked what music he is listening to right now, Clinton said, "Flying Lotus, Cardi B, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z's new album, Tra'Zae, and all that shit coming out of Atlanta. All that trap shit. I'm trapped in it."

But when asked which artist he would most want to work with, Clinton surprised when he said rap sensation Cardi B. "I'd like to work with Cardi B," he said. "She's got the funk."

The answer caught at least some fans off guard. "Cardi B damn was not expecting that lmao," one fan wrote. "Right? but im down w her and now i feel validated in that," another said.

Another fan asked if Clinton still lived in Detroit.

"No I don't live in Detroit, now I live in Florida," he said. "But I still visit all the time. They're really fixing it up now. When they do that to the hood I might move back."

What would a George Clinton and Cardi B collaboration sound like? We think we can rest assured it would be funky.
