Hello My Fellow Soul Vibers!
I was reviewing music for a new podcast episode when I ran across this one -- Tre & The Revelations version of "It's Too Late." They were just here for Little Rock's Blues on the River, but this song is more mellow and definitely fits the NeoSoul Rhythms vibe. Enjoy and post comments to tell me what you think of the song.

Erykah Badu is just being her eccentric, artistic self and I don't see anything wrong with this! Even if I were one of the actual bystanders, I still don't think I would have been moved by this public display of nudity. If a grown woman of three feels the need to walk butt naked down a busy street, then I have no problems with that.
Why? Because so much serious stuff is happening in the world. Do you realize a whole generation of young people are flunking school, on prescribed medication, killing and hurting each other with no remorse? Folks are unemployed; souls are lost and dying without hope; a 21 year-old boy jumped off the Empire State building...WTF?
I personally have dreams for my life that I want to fulfill with financial limits, so who cares if Ms. Badu gets butt assed naked in the street, considering the grand scheme of things?!
Police should have arrested her during the video shoot, not 'consider' public indecency charges afterward. And -- it's funny that none of the onlookers filed a complaint or called law enforcement right while it was happening.
Yoko Ono and John Lennon just about hunched each other in a bubble in the middle of the street and they are considered pop icons.
Someone needs to stand up for individuality and combat the 'groupthink' mentality that will lead the uneducated to once again try to lynch black folks or torch 'Negro" houses in the middle of the night...all riled up by Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and all the other ignorant, stupid, uneducated asses seeking to racially denigrate and defame our President who white folks voted for.
