SOULCANIC LAVA MIXX!
The soul is back like athlete's foot for your enjoyment. I've been playing this mixx for some days now and it's pretty hot, so check it out. I'm still on my Erykah Badu "Amerykah" kick, and that album gets better and better to me. My favorite joint off the album right now is "Telephone!" I was diggin' the song at first listen, but it dawned on me that this was the track that Erykah was talking about when I saw her live last year. She broke it down for the audience. If you didn't know already, that track was dedicated to J Dilla (R.I.P). Erykah was very close to Dilla and his mother. Ma Dukes told her that Jay Dee would be speaking out loud sometimes like he was talking to someone before he passed away. They figured Dilla was having an out of body experience due to the medication he was on for his illness. After Dilla passed on, his brother (Illa J) told Ma Dukes (Dilla's Mother) that Jay Dee was talking to the late Ol' Dirty Bastard during those conversations. J Dilla told his brother that ODB told him how to get to Heaven. Dirty told Dilla to make sure that he got on the White bus and not the Red Bus to get to Heaven.
That story touched Mz. Erykah so much that she wrote song about it, which is the Telephone joint! Now, listen to that track again and hear what you think about it knowing the whole meaning behind the verbage. That track is very spiritual and soulful to me and that's why I added it to this mixx. That's why I like Erykah because she makes music from her soul! Whether you hate it or love it, it that real ish...
