DREAMAALIYAHCOVERHOLYSHITITUDE. Normally we are opposed to straight Baby Girl covers, since no one can capture the mysterious, tragic magic she regularly put down on the equally mysterious melodies Static Major wrote for her to sing. (RIP to both.) But Dream is possibly the only person who can properly do her justice, imbuing her raw sensuality with his own mystical charm, while still honoring her with the reverence she deserves. We've long held this man's music in the highest regard, but this unbelievable track reveals the preternatural tone of his talent—he can cradle, caress and nurture music into raw honey.
