“Papa Don’t Take No Mess” is a funk song performed by James Brown. An edited version of the song released as a two-part single in 1974 was Brown’s final number one R&B hit and peaked at number thirty-one on the Hot 100. The full-length version, nearly 14 minutes long, appeared on the double album Hell. Like “The Payback,“ “Papa Don’t Take No Mess” was originally recorded for a rejected soundtrack to the blaxploitation film Hell Up in Harlem. Read on...
