"Escape-ism" is a funk song by James Brown. It was Brown's first release on his own label, People Records. It charted #6 R&B and #25 Pop as a two-part single in 1971. Both parts also appeared on the album Hot Pants. According to Robert Christgau the song was "supposedly cut to kill time until Bobby Byrd arrived" at the studio.
A live version of "Escape-ism" is included on Revolution of the Mind.
