The main "scale" used for this funk track is the C Dorian mode (C, D, Eb, F, G, A, Bb). This scale is very similar to the C minor pentatonic scale, so the transition from one to the other shouldn't be that big of a stretch... Compare the two:

C pentatonic : 1 2 b3 4 5 b7 C dorian : 1 2 b3 4 5 6 b7
