SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "CREAM" - Mandola Jayebe /// "DIDN'T CHA KNOW" - Erykah Badu

I came across this smooth gem by Mandola Jayebe the other day. Not sure whether it was its sleek production, superb sampling or the oldskool feel of it that blew me away so much, it doesn't happen that often with any of the current Hip-Hop artists... This promising Texas based rapper generously offers his music for free on his Bandcamp. The tracks borrows from Tarika Blue's "Dreamflower" the very same recording which appealed to the queen Erykah Badu in 2000 when she dropped her magnificent "Didn't Cha Know" - the single I cherish up to this day as her finest work to date. Here are both of them back to back sounding all sexy and velvet.
