First things first, I absolutely LOVE Erykah Badu as an artist......she is so DOPE!! She looked ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL pregnant!! This performance took place years ago. This is MY SONG!! I often jam to this when I am in my car!! I know what some of you are thinking......yes she is talking about hanging out with boys and smoking that smoke (back in the day)....but I really feel the VIBE and the picture that she is painting. It is a FUN and EASY BREEZY type of NEO SOUL song!! Erykah Badu can do NO WRONG in my book MUSICALLY!!!! When I think about performing my songs live.....I often think of being the type of artist that can CREATE A VIBE that is so laid back, pure, positive, and dope!!!
So I ABSOLUTELY LOVE Rhapsody and this album!!! I was LATE to the Rapsody party but have been VIBING with her music ever since!! She is a great LYRICIST that is actually TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING on this album! We are in a day and age where a lot of artists are perpetuating negative messages that will not help us as a people PRESS FORWARD! I appreciate the artists that try to push the culture in a POSITIVE WAY!!!! This is MY FAVORITE cut on the album because she is talking about love and relationships in a REAL WAY and the musicality of the record is just so DOPE and very similar to my musical aesthetic!!!
Give the album Laila's Wisdom a listen!!!!
