Neo Soul Star EryKah Badu is no stranger to controversy or conflict and it seems that another Hip Hop Artist has drawn her ire. Taking to Twitter several days ago, Badu blasted Papoose for his use of her vocals on his Nacimera Dream LP. Her vocals were used on the song “Cure”. According to Badu, her authorization was never given for the use of her vocals on that song.
“I sang those vocals 10 years ago. That’s 2 babies ago. Sheeeit. So mcs just throwing out old material- no paperwork…”, said the songstress.
Nacimera Dream, Papoose’s much anticipated and much delayed album apparently makes use of Erykah’s vocals and after hearing the song which was publically released five days ago, she decided to make her displeasure known. At this point there has been no official statement made by the Badu camp.
This is not the first time that singer has taken aim at a Hip Hop artist. Last June she jumped all over Wayne Cayne based on what she called a shock motivated video. Badu has never been shy in expressing her opinion on a number of issues. This was no different.
This papoose song Cure. I sang those vocals 10 years ago. That’s 2 babies ago.Sheeeit. So mcs just throwing out old material- no paperwork..
They already have the cure by now.
