Funk legend Rick James’ new tombstone was erected at his grave site a few days ago marking the 2nd aniversary of his death.
The jet-black tombstone with Rick in a leather jacket and tight pants etched into the marble symbolizes everything Rick James was, the same image was used in his 1981 album “Street Songs” which was definately one of his biggest albums and propelled him to the huge star he came to be.
The final markings on the stone read:
“I’VE HAD IT ALL
I’VE DONE IT ALL
I’VE SEEN IT ALL
IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE . . .
GOD IS LOVE.”
James Ambrose Johnson Jr headstone
A fitting monument to a funk icon.
