So last night, to treat myself after a long day of studying for the boards, I went to the second installment of the best Spoken Word show I have seen in the NYC called Dean’s List, put on by the Striver’s Row. The SR is a group of UBER talented well-educated (Ivy League) young African-American poets who have come together to do something really beautiful, for this the second time. Anywho, while there, I hear this song
playing that sends my heart a flutter!!! I am like, who is this!?!? So I LITERALLY run around asking folk if they knew this song, and who sung it. NO ONE KNEW!!! And I know what you’re thinking, SHAZAM it right….WRONG!! This spot just happens to be on the basement floor and don’t get me started on the lameness that is AT&Terrible’s reception at times. So, just as I was about to be moved to tears, my friend tells me that he has a signal and he can SHAZAM IT!! EUREKA!!!!…or so I thought. Turns out that SHAZAM was like, “WHAT IS THIS SH!T” and didn’t recognize it from yours truly, The BBC, doing a remake of TLC’s “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfall’s” (I am T-Boz of course, Chris is Chilli and Byron is Left Eye pre Andre Risen) I digress. Anyway, I am mad disappointed that I missed what I thought to be my last shot at EVER hearing the song, but my friend points out that the hook sounds like it would be titled “Supernatural,” and I am like that’s a long shot but I will try to YouTube it, not really thinking it would work. Scene cuts to today post boards, Glory to God for the comfort during that test by the way. I am now sitting in my room on Mahmoud The MACk (name of my computer) and of course I remember to look and I come across
And I’m like THAT’S THEM!!! I immediately follow the link to the aforementioned “Supernatural” and then to Itunes to see what I can find. Needless the say I found a 3 song EP, their website, and twitter and spent the next 6 hours listening to these same 3 songs and posting them to Facebook, Tumblr, and the penultimate THEINTELLUTION;). Please enjoy, and when these girls blow up, remember you heard it here first. If you’ll excuse me, I have more listening to do, I must know every chord and melody by morning! HAHAHAH

PS The EP is called “The Story” by the way.
