"We Got the Funk" is single by East Coast hip hop group The Beatnuts. It was released by Loud Records in 2002 as a 12 inch single after being featured on Classic Nuts, Vol. 1, a Beatnuts hits album. The song is produced by The Beatnuts and features raps by Juju and Psycho Les, as well as a chorus performed by Mellanie. The song's lyrics are boastful of The Beatnuts' musical ability and sexual prowess. The song's beat, characterized by a slow funky guitar loop, deep bassline and pounding drums, samples "It's So Different Here" by Rachel Sweet. Although included on a greatest hits album, "We Got the Funk" never charted, received music video treatment or was released in CD format.
