OUT MY MIND JUST IN TIME from Creative Control on Vimeo.

Evan Nabavian voided his conscious aura by stealing Talib Kweli’s Metro Card.

Erykah Badu voided her conscious aura by working with Rick Ross, whose tattooed bosoms are burned on the insides of my eyelids thanks to the new Vibe. You can’t be a bohemian soul queen if you sang the hook on “Maybach Music 3: The Bawses Strike Back.” And I enjoyed “Bawses Strike Back,” but Erykah tore up her neo-soul pass with that one.

That said, “Out My Mind Just In Time” is a soft, bluesy number with a great video. It’s one shot (kind of) of Erykah tossing around in the dark, interpreting the lyrics with her body – a dreary look at enslaving love. Much more powerful than the video where she strips naked in downtown Dallas, though it probably won’t get as much press.
