Being asked in August 2011 about his next projects, Keb Darge mentions that one plan was to do another [Kings Of Funk] compilation together with Amy Winehouse (aided by Gabe Roth in selecting 'her' tracks). However, she died before the project took off. Darge continous:

“So I don’t know what we’re gonna do next. Don’t know about that… Apart from me saying : [Let’s do] another one of these. [Keb Darge & Little’s Edith’s BBE compilation “Legendary Wild Rockers: A Collection Of Rare Rockabilly Surf & Exotica”] It’s good enough. We don’t need a famous fucker. ‘Cos… In all honestly: You know, a lot of the compilations with famous people, the famous people’s side were pretty dull in my opinion. Cut Chemist’s side was great on the Rockabilly one [“Keb Darge & Cut Chemist Present Lost & Found”], Paul’s side [on “Keb Darge & Paul Weller Present Lost & Found”] was ‘OK’ but, who was it, RZA, I did the ‘Kings Of Funk’ with RZA, good God, he’s not a King Of Funk, he’s a child when it comes to Funk. It was so blatantly obvious: This guy knows nothing. And I spoke to him a few times and I thought: ‘He knows nothing’. So, yeah, I prefer to be left alone to do my compilations but the record label want me to do it with big names to help them sell a product.”
