NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Erykah Badu (Video)

Robert Glasper did mention Erykah Badu in that last scorcher interview he did. Fellow Texan. And she is well beyond worthy on ‘honorable mention.’ See her Tiny Desk Concert performance for a reminder if you need one; or even if you don’t!

Erykah Badu is an artist for the ages. To old-school jazz fans like myself, names like Nina Simone, Betty Carter and Shirley Horn come to mind as much as Billie Holiday because of Badu’s singular approach to a lyric. They all cut their own creative path and left behind a legacy that you can identify with just one note. Erykah Badu is on that same path, and one day her name will be mentioned along with the other Elders who share her spirit of musical adventure.

Keep an eye/ear open for it though. Worth it.

Erykah Badu x Hi-Tek – “Honey” (Duncan Gerow Blend)

BamaLoveSoul gave much love and propers to Alaska-based producer, Duncan Gerow, for his latest Erykah Badu / Hi-Tek blend. We give respect to BamaLoveSoul for sharing the wealth and bringing this jewel of a joint to our attention. FREE download below!

Gerow skillfully places Badu’s vocals over one of my favorite Hi-Tek produced beats. It quickly reminded me that Erykah actually did do an official remix to Reflection Eternal‘s lead single “The Blast” but I always felt like I got robbed a little bit cause all she was relegated to were hook duties. So to hear this blend gives my imagination free license to wander/wonder a bit as to what she could have done on this track with a little more leash and leg room.
