New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) 2LP Purple
Part of Erykah Badu's limited purple vinyl series. For the first time on purple vinyl, New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) was originally released on February 26, 2008.
In 2008, as the U.S. engaged in the Iraq War and the nation prepared for an historic presidential election, Badu presented her own offering for the evolving times with New Amerykah Part One: 4th World War. Badu's fourth studio album and the first installment of the two-part New Amerykah series kept Badu's hip-hop spirit kindled. New Amerykah Part One boasts beats from the best soundsmiths in the game - including Madlib, 9th Wonder, Shafiq Husayn (for Sa-Ra Creative Partners), Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson of The Roots, James Poyser, Georgia Anne Muldrow, and Mike "Chav" Chavaria. With the singles "Honey" and "The Healer" generating significant cyberspace buzz, Badu reclaimed her cherished throne as a soul music phenom. New Amerykah Part One debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and Rolling Stone named it one of the year's best albums.
