The Foreign Exchange x ?uestlove "Purple Flip"
Via Nicolay's site we're blessed with this amazing tribute to Prince , "Purple Flip," by The Foreign Exchange , ?uestlove, Zo! and Carlitta Durrand. I'll let 'Tay and Nic explain this one: "In the wake of the incredible loss we suffered on June 25, this joint took on somewhat of a deeper meaning. We decided to share it with our fans not only as a token of appreciation, but also as a way of paying respect to one of our last living musical geniuses. Let's not wait until tragedy strikes before we show love and gratitude to our heroes, people. Give them their flowers while they live. This one's for you, Mr. Nelson. You are loved and appreciated." This joint was recorded over a month ago for a tribute party ?uestlove was organizing to honor Prince. For you non-purple-heads, the Prince song they are flipping is "Take Me With You."
