“They Don’t Know You” F. Common & Ledisi (Unreleased)

    Thank you, Internet, for sharing this holy neo-soul gem from the vaults. According to the folks at Bama Love Soul, Raphael Saadiq and Steve Spacek teamed up in 2004 to create an album called Pookie Blue Room. And as if that pairing wasn’t killer enough, they apparently got vocal features with the likes of Common, Q-Tip, Ledisi, and Sir Bentley. Here, we’re hearing one of the previously buried album cuts called “They Don’t Know You,” which is sure to make you wish it was ’04 all over again. It doesn’t hurt that Com’s opening verse sounds like something we heard on Be. Sigh. Can someone please finish this album and properly release it? Stream “They Don’t Know You” below.
