Flashback Friday: KeKe Wyatt and Heltah Skeltah

Well, if you’re like me, you’re pretty excited to see this Friday.

This week was draining.

If you need a little pick-me-up too, try these albums.


KeKe Wyatt, KeKe (2014)

Y’all ready for some of that trademark real talk? Here goes: KeKe is greatest vocalist in R&B history without a truly great album. Don’t get me wrong, she doesn’t have any bad albums – her sophomore album is probably the best of the bunch – but it’s hard to name THE definitive KeKe album. But listen to her 2014 EP and you’ll hear the beginnings of a truly great LP. I wish she built out this short but sweet release just a bit more – it could have been the album we’ve always anticipated.

Heltah Skeltah, D.I.R.T. (Da Incredible Rap Team) (2008)

We’re quick to show love to the late, great Sean Price here at SoulInStereo.com, but we don’t take nearly enough time to discuss the greatness of Heltah Skeltah. Easily one of the most underrated rap groups in history, P and his partner Rock built their legacies over gritty tracks and vicious (and sometimes hilarious) lyrics. D.I.R.T. was the group’s final album and it didn’t disappoint. Hip-hop never gave these guys their due.
