I BECOME A SOLDIER WHEN IT’S WAR TIME

When I first started getting into Sade (see these posts for some of that history), one of the most common comments I’ve gotten from people about her is “Oh yeah, my mom really likes her.”  It’s funny that she’s such a big hit with the white moms around me, but also with some of my favorite rappers too.  I heard this new track from a Bay Area cat named Droop-E that makes a pretty obvious Sade reference, and it reminded me of this older Z-Ro song that I think does an even better job of reinterpreting it.

Z-Ro – Respect My Mind

Sade – Cherish the Day
