Random Music Memory: Erykah Badu, Miles Davis, and the Rapper

In light of the last two posts, I have to share a music memory:

Last decade, I was working on a strategic plan for a rap label. The CEO had inherited a box of classic reel to reel jazz albums from a relative and we spent hours listening to them while we worked. Kind of Blue was a particular favorite. Of course.

One evening, he put Erykah Badu's Live cd on as we worked. And then got mad.

He recognized So What in Rimshot.

While I would think a rapper would appreciate an homage, it lowered Badu in his estimation.

That was the last time we listened to Badu while we worked.
