Blowfly's Save the Funky House Party: "Take Care of Our Local Legend"

Blowfly is so old that hieroglyphics on Egyptian pyramids show him and Cleopatra having oral sex. Legend has it that's where he wrote the lyrics to his classic "Girl Let Me Cum in Your Mouth."

Both Snoop Dogg and the RZA have cited his profound influence on the world of music. And Canada's cult media personality Nardwuar is another massive fan.

For those who don't know the history: Blowfly's alter ego, Clarence Reid, is a soul, funk, and R&B pioneer who started his career with Deep City, Florida's first black-owned record label.
