    George Clinton‘s ex lawyers gotta have the funk, and a judge just gave it to ‘em — forcing the music legend to hand over four classic recordings to pay off the million bucks he owes the law firm … TMZ has learned.

    According to court docs, Hendricks & Lewis won a $1.5 million judgment against Clinton back in 2010, but was only able to collect $340,000 — so a Federal Judge just hit GC where it hurts … his music.

    In the docs, the judge grants H&L the copyrights for the following Funkadelic jams:

    - “Hardcore Jollies”
    – “The Electric Spanking of War Babies”
    – “Uncle Jam Wants You”
    – “One Nation Under A Groove”

    According to the ruling, H&L can sell or use the music however it wants — with all money going toward paying back the original judgment.

    Once that’s paid off, the copyrights go back to Clinton … who has filed a motion to reverse the decision. No ruling on that yet.

    Hey, at least they didn’t take “Atomic Dog.”
