It’s a DFW artist dream to pen something about that area’s most treasured musical monument. Erykah Badu represents something to D-Town and surrounding areas that puts her in revered company. For everyone in Houston looking for a cosign from Bun B to be on, the same sort of goes for Erykah. Nick Pratt understands this, his roots and more.

So when it came time to finishing his latest EP The Badu Sessions, all thoughts of him heading West, continuing his path in music and more all centered around the legendary muse and what impact she’s left not only on him, but DFW music as a whole. Sessions only last in a snack pack six tracks, all produced by Cassius G where Pratt expounds on life, love and more all with the winding vocals of Badu intertwined. The tape, premiered by DJBooth is available to be streamed and downloaded below.
