I remember listening to No I.D.’s Pray For the Sinners, and immediately flipping through the CD’s liner notes to see where the head nodding sample originated. By this point, Hip Hop had become an entryway into numerous genres of music for me and I was overwhelmed with artists to listen to. I was surprised to find out the legendary Stevie Wonder wrote, composed and arranged Take a Little Trip but it also made me grab the performer, Minnie Riperton’s 1974 Perfect Angel album which was co produced by Stevie. Brenda Nicole Moorer will release her new album Marrow in August and one of the standout tracks is her cover of one of my Riperton favorites. The percussion is pumping, as if its powerful rhythm will propel you to do what the title suggests posthaste. As a long time fan or Moorer, I don’t need much motivation to grab any of her releases but I hope this causes you to take a lil’ trip to grab Marrow when it drops.Brenda Nicole Moorer – Take A Little Trip
