Less than two months after dropping her Black Friday mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone, Erykah Badu gets right back to work on her next mixtape, This $h!t Too Easy. On her first release of 2016, R&B’s high priestess cooks up a remix to Kanye West’s new track “Real Friends” mixed with Whodini’s ’90s classic “Friends” entitled “Trill Friends.” As always, Badu keeps it real, calling out the fake friends: “Homeboys, see some of them we wish we never knew at all.”
The song came together spontaneously. “what up yeezy?” she wrote. “BADU MESSIN ROUND THIS MORNIN (really suppose be recording something else …).”
