Erykah Badu "Honey" (2007)

9th Wonder: "I sent her four beats and she kept the fourth beat that I sent her and started writing to it, which was dope because I made that beat back in 2003.

“I linked up with Badu through James Poyser of The Roots, one of the original Soulquarians. He was like, ‘Badu wants to reach out to you, man.’ And it went from there. I didn’t know it was going to be the first single from the album though. That was a big surprise. She said, ‘Sylvia Rhone really liked the song.’ And the video was retarded.

"I went out to Dallas for that. She’s cool. These people that are larger-than-life-type people, once you get into their close quarters you actually realize that they are cool people, but they have to protect themselves because people are crazy."
