Here's why he is a bitch:
Around the mid-1980s, Johnson started a fast-food fish restaurant business, and became semi-retired from performing, only making occasional appearances at blues club gigs.
In 1992, Johnson found out that his song "Different Strokes" had been sampled
by number of rappers
including Wu-Tang Clan
, Public Enemy
, Kool G Rap
, and the Geto Boys
. Stimulated by this fact, he decided to make a comeback in the music industry
In 1994, he released the album Back in the Game
on Delmark Records
. The album featured the Hi rhythm section and his youngest daughter Syleena Johnson
The dude retired and then because people were sampling his shit he decides to make a come back. If anything he owes the artists that are introducing his music to a new generation of fans some gratitude. If it wasn't for the "thieves" he would still be running a fast food joint.
