“I know I’m alotta woman but not enough to divide the pie”
If it’s one song that I can listen to to on repeat until I fall asleep to, this is it. My homegirl Tiff says that Erykah’s the best live singer out and this makes it hard for me to doubt her opinion because she rips this. I’m not even going to mention the 12 minute version from her Live album.
I was born under water
With three dollars & six dimes
Yeah, you may laugh
Cuz you did not do yo math
Video inspired by the Juke Joint scene from The Color Purple. Most people don’t even get how much 5% knowledge she spit on this song. And I may be in the minority but I love Erykah’s debut and live album but haven’t really completely dug the rest of her catalog.

Soulful songstress Yahzarah has bounced around for the past decade or so with a few albums under her belt that made minor dents but never broke through. She also caught some attention singing back-up on Erykah Badu’s Mama’s Gun. But even with a nice push behind Blackstar, Yahzarah remained more an underground soul act, for better or for worse. But with her upcoming record, she looks to join the critically acclaimed and more widely recognized ranks of her Foreign Exchange crew. Since appearing on the Foreign Exchange’s Connected and Leave It All Behind, she’s toured with the group and become a prominent member. The Ballad of Ms. Purple Saint James is Yahzarah’s latest foray as a solo artist and is sure to feature production from Nicolay and Zo! with Phonte and Darien Brockington stopping by for vocal duties.
