This is good news… Janelle Monae hits the scene with a new single off her upcoming album The Electric Lady. The single is entitled Q.U.E.E.N. and it features Erykah Badu. The song is inspired by private conversations that the two had. Take a listen andlet us know what you think. Enjoy!!!
This was one of my favorite songs by the Jackson 5 when I was a kid and I still love it to this day. Never did I think in a million years that anyone could cover it and do it justice. So this song was recorded live at a party that Motown gives the first Saturday of every month. Kudos to DJ Reverend P for capturing the performance… Needless to say Badu and The Roots gave a more than stellar performance…. This is Dopeness!!! Stream it and Download it now!!!! Enjoy!!!
The Session is a short documentary by Jeff Schroer (Stottle) on the Dallas hip-hop scene in 1995. Started as weekly freestyle party hosted by “Big” Ben Rogers and Erykah “Free” (aka Erykah Badu), The Session was originally created by Cold Chris (Mad Flava) and Ben as an informal MC meetup at Ben’s home. The Session, with Erykah’s help, then became the center of Dallas hip-hop for a few brief months that year.The Documentary also features… Skin Wade, Mikey Culture, Mental Wreck and DJ Del Furious… The D-Town Underground is still dope!!! There is still a weekly event that follows this same format. It’s hosted by Erykah Badu’s Music Director/Producer/Keyboardist R.C. Williams. The JAM Session is held every Wednesday night.If you’re in town come and see Dallas’ finest flex at the Prophet Bar… Take a moment and check out the documentary and raw clips of The Session below… ENJOY!
