Rick James may have been born into a life of crime but he was determined to make his way in life through music. He intimidated George Clinton, inspired Prince and more than likely saved Jim Morrison’s life. Rick James was rock ‘n roll’s Zelig. He was also sex-crazed, dangerous and heavily addicted to crack cocaine. Three traits that led to two separate arrests for the kidnapping and torture of two different women. Listen to this episode of Disgraceland to hear the tale of the one and only Superfreak, Rick James.
