Something crunk about Cornbread's 'Blackberry Pie' remix

Posted By on Tue, Jan 17, 2012 at 1:50 PM

Atlanta artist Richelle L. Brown aka Cornbread has dropped a new video for the remix of "Blackberry Pie." The song appears on her latest project, Cornbread, Richelle & Me: The Groovetape. Her unbridled brand of funkiness has been under my skin for awhile now — at least since she introduced herself as the "Swagga Black Country Queen" back in 2009. Since then, she's been spreading herself around with solo efforts while singing background and collaborating with multiple Atlanta artists and MCs, from Aleon Craft to Alive and Well (Mike Flo and Ekundayo).

She's one of those artists that piques my curiosity because I never quite know what to expect from her. That and the fact that she seems to have an underlying fearlessness and playful energy that pushes her to experiment and explore, like a kid eager to break a few rules. So far it's taken her from electro-based future funk and dance grooves to vintage Funkadelic guitar wildouts featuring her unrestrained vocals — an old soul from a new school. But something tells me that ain't even the half where Cornbread's concerned.
