Lavish Music: But You Caint Use My Phone

Erykah Badu is that crazy girlfriend that out-crazies you and you love her for making you laugh, cry, vent, and it keep it all the way real. Because she is just true. So how geeked was I to hear her new mixtape But you Caint Hear My Phone?

I’ve missed Ms Erykah. Sure, she’s put out a few solo gems here and there, but I haven’t heard a solid album from her since Mama’s Gun. And I own all her albums, so I would know. Phone, with its obvious Drake shoutouts, consistent phone theme, and a surprising duet with ex, Andre 3000 gives me that trip, psychedelic, neo-soul drip that I’ve missed from her. Nothing too far out like New Amerykah, but just high enough in the clouds to stay within the hemisphere, so we can all come back down and process that shit. I’m all here for it.

My faves:
U Use to Call Me
What’s Yo Phone Number
and Hello

But You Caint Use My Phone is on iTunes.

And did you catch the Soul Train Music Awards? She did her thing as the host. Loved the Soul Cipher.

The Top 5 Ways I Love Using Honey

“Make a bitch drink coffee… And I’m allergic to caffeine”
– Erykah Badu, “Honey”
I was listening to Pandora and this song came up. I forgot how much I like it. But seriously, have you ever added honey to your coffee? It’s a really tasty alternative to sugar, and adds a wonderful richness. Those who know me know about my obsession with honey. I regularly buy the golden treat by the tub-full on, and it’s usually gone within a few weeks. I always get the organic kind, and have lately been using only raw because of the amount of nutrients, like propolis, that are usually filtered out in traditional processed honey. Here are five ways that I love using honey:
1. Drizzled over a bowl of Fage Greek yogurt
2. In my coffee when I run out of turbinado sugar 
3. I smear a little raw honey on a cut to act like a natural Neosporin
4. Spread underneath peanut butter on hearty wheat toast
5. In a cup of Thyme tea to quell a cough
Do you have any non traditional ways you like to use honey?
