Fresh from freestyling at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards6LACK is now the latest star to appear on “Like a Version,” choosing Erykah Badu’s classic “On and On” as his cover. Badu’s classic song is given a suitably neo-soul cover by the singer and rapper, who took the Baduizm-era single and made it his own.

He also spoke to triple j about why he chose the song, noting that he has a deep connection with Badu’s music, saying the following:

“I think the funniest thing about the connection between me and her is when my daughter was being born, I had a show at the Observatory in California. So, I missed my daughter’s birth. And while I’m listening to her on the phone, Erykah Badu is performing in the background and I’m crying on the phone. And Erykah’s singing, and I’m listening to my baby being born… So I’ll always have a connection to her and everything she does.”

Watch 6LACK cover “On and On” above. And, in other music news, check out the freshly-dropped videos for every track on Lil Uzi Vert’s Love Is Rage 2.
