Man, it really pays to be dead these days. It seems that guys like Biggie Tupac and Ol’ Dirty Bastard are makin’ more music after their untimely demise than when they were alive and kickin’.
Now you can add Rick James to that list, bitch.

The album the funk pioneer was working on before his 2004 heart attack will be released in early May on Stone City Records.

The effort features tracks James wrote in the last few years of his , and was originally due in August 2005 via Sanctuary. The yet-to-be-titled album's first single, "Deeper Still," will freak urban radio in late January.

Plus, James’ autobiography, Memoirs of a Superfreak, which he wrote while incarcerated in Folsom Prison for assault from 1993 to1995, will be released in April via Amber Communications.

And as if that ain’t enough, James' estate has also given the thumbs-up to screenwriter Sheldon Turner (The Longest Yard) to begin work on a film about James' life. Sadly though, it will not star Dave Chappelle.

"When Rick was alive, Dave Chappelle wanted to make a movie," a spokesperson for the James estate said. "But Rick didn't want a movie made of the caricature of himself from Dave's show. He wanted a real story."
