For the Love of the Cuff EP / Live from Planet Earth volume 1.1
by Nia I’man Smith

Brothas and Sistas, It is with great sadness that I report the cold pimp slap of winter is officially upon us. Between landlords that lock up the thermostat because your adjusting it “makes the gas bill go up” and the shame that comes with trying to weatherproof your windows using saran wrap, winter is surely the season that finds most folks looking for alternate sources of heat. So while I personally maintain a strict "anti-cuff" policy, in the spirit of realizing that everybody isn’t satisfied with just their degrees keeping them warm on these cold ass nights, we present to you the For the Love of the Cuff EP: Live from Planet Earth volume 1.1.

Guaranteed to get you and your seasonal boo hotter than a good space heater, we've carefully compiled over TWO hours of the best Cognac fueled old school and bump and grind new school slow jams for all your cuffing needs. So download the A-Side and the B-Side, stuff that comforter in the back of the closet, pull out the bearskin rug, and if you end up going half on a baby as a result of some Tyrone Davis or Tiombe Lockhart, just promise that you’ll name her (or him) Nia. It's only fair.
