Erykah Badu "Worldwide Underground"

Man,I love this album.it's like one continuos groove session

with great melodies.

i think her first, "Baduizm", is great too but I've listened far more

to "worldwide underground".

I like to smoke a little something and play this album loud.

Anyone else dig this little gem?

I've yet to encounter an unenjoyable Erykah Badu album. Hope it stays that way! Worldwide Underground is a great project, I love the way she used to work the audience when she was touring the record with the "puff" gesture and the "woo" choruses. She was experimenting with the crowd interaction that is now a standard in her live show.

Just listened to it last week for the first time in years. I love it..I think it's better than "Baduizm". Very outside the box and still reels you in. Patiently waiting for her next release.

Same procedure here. lol

Mama´s Gun is still my favorite and her most cohesive, New Amerykah I & II her most political (albeit a bit too sketchy and a tad unfinished in my opinion) but World Wide Underground is her most enjoyable, fun little album.

I wish her newer stuff was a bit easier to get a hold of. I don´t do downloads, I´d rather have either a physical CD or a very easy-to-download mixtape....but a mixtape on a paysite? Too complicated for me. The only downloads I do are off of Youtube or Soundcloud, and if I like what I hear I go and get the physical CD to support the artist and to have a booklet.

Love Erykah, can´t get enough of her music, seen her live a couple of times....always had fun.

" I´d rather be a stank ass hoe because I´m not stupid. Oh my goodness! I got more drugs! I´m always funny dude...I´m hilarious! Are we gonna smoke?"

It is a decent EP.

I Want You is a JAM and so is back in The Day. That got played heavily on KMOJ radio here in Minneapolis

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Album that made me a fan. Dethroned Madonna as my all time fave artist in 2003, with just one spin. I wish i could hear it new, again! To be fair i hadnt listened to all of baduizm or mama's gun and had totally missed Live...but i thought EB was wack before she made this (WWU) and decided she was basically the female Sly Stone meets Bjork. Just sayin

I'll leave it alone babe...just be me

Love is on the way, all I got to say is
It won't let go
You can pray to early May, fast for 30 days
Still it won't let go, oh
Got a good book and got all in it, tried a little yoga for a minute
But it won't let go, oh
Tried to turn the sauna up to hotter, drunk a whole jar of holy water
But it won't let go, oh

I I I I I I I
Want you you you you you you you
Said I I I I I I
I said what we gon' do

In the worse kinda way way way way way way way
I want you you you you, baby
So what we gon' do, baby
