"I Stay Ready” by Cody ChesnuTT
BTR Hear & There | ep125 | Nov 21, 2016
Cody ChesnuTT emerged on the national musical landscape in 2002 with his appropriately-titled The Headphone Masterpiece. Truly a special record from a unique, soulful voice, it left so many wanting more -- and even moreso when the Roots covered/collaborated with ChesnuTT on their version of the single, "The Seed.” And though his recorded output in the following years was limited, it’s been less sporadic since 2010. Now, with a new album looming, he joined us in a backyard in Crown Heights, Brooklyn for an intimate performance of “ I Stay Ready.”

My Love Divine Degree is due out in 2017.
