SA-RA Feat. Bilal & Georgia – The Master Teacher Sessions EP

11.20.08 9 years ago 9 Comments

Swiped from Fresh Selects, SA-RA member Shafiq Husayn breaks down two unreleased versions of Badu’s “Master Teacher,” originally from Nu Amerykah.

So the story goes – after the deal for Black Fuzz fell through, Shafiq explains “Erykah always liked the song…I was like you should use it…(our deal at that time with G.O.O.D. was done) so it was just one of those records sitting around…Why not let Badu rock it? It made sense.” And so to go along with the album version (which you should already have), I’ve got Shafiq’s unissued “Final Mix” of the track, which features Georgia on lead & Bilal backing her up. This is the mix that Shafiq intended to be appear on the album, but it didn’t make it in time for the deadline. And if those two weren’t enough for ya, there’s the included bonus, “Master Teazer (Ken’s Revenge Edit)” – an instrumental re-edit of Shafiq’s beat, using different outtakes from the sessions by SA-RA affiliate, KenBts.
