Testing Positive 4 the Funk is the fourth installment of the George Clinton Family Series collection. The album was released in 1993 by P-Vine Records in Japan, and then was released later in the same year by AEM Records in the United States and Sequel Records in the U.K.. This collection is noted for the inclusion of tracks such as a re-recording of "Live Up (To What She Thinks)" which was originally recorded by the soul quartet, The Fantastic Four. The track marked the debut of P-Funk vocalist Glenn Goins.

As with all of the Family Series CD's, the last track features George Clinton supplying background information of all of the songs featured on the CD.
