“She’s in the back room, greasing up, Friday night is heating up Young cats tricking up, dancing so they give it up The best girl working there and you know for what it’s worth She’s working towards a better life, regardless if she’s working nights”
Opening cut to Q-tip’s Kamaal/The Abstract project which was originally supposed to be released in 2002 but was shelved by his label because they felt it lacked “commercial appeal”. It was later released in 2009 on Battery records.
My favorite track on Q-Tip’s (rarely spoken of) album “Kamaal The Abstract”. As a huge fan of Jazz, I love the entire album, but this track put Hip-Hop and Jazz together in a way that I really love and appreciate.
