Killer Mike connects with Robert Glasper and Eryn Allen Kane for a stripped down version of “Motherless” from Mike’s incredible Michael album. Glasper provides the keys with Kane’s sweet vocals being the backdrop for Mike to deliver his message about the passing of his mother and grandmother. It’s an incredible moment more than worth your time.
“Two years ago I was asked to get on a ‘Black Superhero’ by Robert Glasper- the song was incredible and he’d go on to win a Grammy for that album,” Mike said. “My only regret was that we weren’t in the same room together when we made it. So when talks of him remixing “MOTHERLESS” came up it was a no brainer only this time we wanted to be in studio together along with Eryn Allen Kane.
“Someone was smart enough to have cameras there capturing us making this tribute to my mother, Druzella Denise Clonts aka OG Mama Niecy and Rob’s mother, Kim Yvette Glasper. Performing this song is never easy- I wept every night on tour The outpouring of emotions has been part of healing. To all those who belong to Motherless club I pray this helps and to all those who are lucky enough to have their mothers- call them!”
