I'm pretty sure this thread will sink to the next page pretty quickly, but I must express my love for Erykah Badu and her music. Intelligent, Beautiful, Soulful, and what an amazing voice. She's the Billie Holiday of today, and I've loved everyhting she's released.

Mahmud went to the roots show in Dallas last week, and she came out as a surprise guest.

Here's a pic

at the end of the jam... erykah badu returned... but not to sing.

her drum solo was AWESOME
and after that... SO WAS HER CONGA/BONGO solo.

If you're familiar with her, have enjoyed a song or two, or just have a degree of respect for her, here's your chance to show a little appreciation.

I knew a few people would like her, but I still see this thread disappearing in a matter of hours.

Hopefully I'm proved wrong though

Nice choice, I love that song

If you like that song you should give her debut album a listen (If you haven't already) because the whole album has that same vibe and feel to it.

You're probably thinking of the roots song "You Got Me," that's a great song.

You can't really go wrong with any of her releases, but I would start with her debut album "Baduizm." It's the one that started everything and It's great, I love it.

One of my favorite songs from her is a 10 minute song called "I Want You"

But if you want something that's less ambitious get "Next Lifetime" for a slower groovy song and "Love of my life" or "Danger" for an upbeat song

I heard an amazing live duet she did with Jill Scott(I think). It was fucking incredible.

You got me is also such a good song. And love of my life.

definitely right my absentee friend <3

ok. this song is so fucking wicked. the way it transitions into this great just melodic beat in the end.

i have NO idea how i missed this thread the first time around, but i ADORE ms badu. i would give near anything to see her live, i never have. i think mama's gun is a good step from baduizm....but i can only listen to the first half. ....& on, clevah, it's got some great tracks in the begining. btu then it stops appealing to me. baduizm is an album that will never get old, it is timeless and gorgeous. worldwide underground has great tracks too, some people don't like it as much (well...basically just the love of my life remix) - but i don't mind it. i think my favourite track would have to be "woo" i mean....it's SO good. this thread is great and i'm glad i get to be the one to revive it!


ms badu's always comin' for real, you know the deal

She's amazing. I used to have her live album until somebody stole it.
