B.J. Smith (of Smith & Mudd fame) returns with two excellent cover versions of some of Andre 3000's most popular cuts. If you're familiar with Smith's work as part of Smith & Mudd then you know he's got the chilled out golden touch. The first installment of Dedications To The Greats reworked tracks from Mos Def and the Pharcyde. This time he tackles two from Andre 3000's The Love Below. His versions of "Hey Ya!" and "Prototype" come at the songs from a much more subdued direction. Acoustic guitar and melodic vocals bring a deeper and more soulful side of them out. Perfect for those mellow moments in life.
