"My Thang" is a funk song written and recorded by James Brown.The song borrows lines from the then outtake "Funky Drummer", which was a habit for Brown where he would borrow lines from a non-charting single or remake the song structure completely.Unlike most of his songs, this song was released not released as a two-part single but instead issued with three different B-sides. It spent two weeks at number one on the R&B singles chart - Brown's second #1 in a row, following "The Payback" - and reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 1974.[1][2] The song also appeared on Brown's 1974 double album Hell.[3]

"My Thang" was also sampled on various Hip-Hop songs, including "Brand New Funk" by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince and "Funky Child" by Lords Of The Underground among others.
