Lil Wayne croaked “Where the fuck is Erykah Badu at?” at the end of “A Milli,” a snippet that eventually became Miss On and On’s intro music and presumably led to this Weezy guest spot on “Jump in the Air (Stay There),” the bonus Web-only track  from New Amerykah Part 2. Lifting her hook from Funkadelic’s “Hydraulic Pump,” that Clintonian dusted haze is clearly Badu’s intent and there’s a certain jangled paranoia inherent in the track’s stabbing synths and snapping drums. Weezy recycles his usual tricks and brings a dull eccentricity, but Badu is the main attraction, layering alien and angelic harmonies over a beat that sounds like something off the back half of Stankonia. Call it UFO R&B: incandescent, willfully bizarre, and obviously involving people who are very very high.
