Shortly before releasing her new mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone in November, Erykah Badu took over the airwaves of Beats 1 Radio and played a mini mix titled “+++BEATS BEES LIKE FOR B-BOYS AND B-GIRLS+++”. Now, some weeks later, the R&B singer has finally uploaded the 30-minute collection to MixCloud for all to hear.
“Save the bees, else we aint gone have no where to fight and discriminate… cause they aint have’n that shit on MARS,” Badu, who sometimes goes by the name DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown, writes in an accompanying message. The “feel good high freaq mix” includes cuts from Thundercat, Sun Ra, and Hiatus Kaiyote, among others.
