But You Caint Use My Phone is a mixtape by American singer Erykah Badu. It was released on November 27, 2015, by Motown and Control Freaq. Following the release of New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) (2010), Badu embarked on a five-year hiatus, during which she traveled to Africa in an attempt to record new music, though this never surfaced.

Album But You Caint Use My Phone. Caint Use My Phone (Suite) Lyrics. You can call it, but you can't use my phone You can call it, but you can't use my phone You can call it, but you can't use my phone. You better use telepathy cause you can't use my phone Put a message in a bottle, but you can't use my phone You better use Morse code cause you can't use my phone Get a towel and some smoke cause you can't use my phone You can call her, but you can't use my phone  . The first song on Badu’s mixtape introduces the cellphone-themed album, inspired by Drake’s Hotline Bling by bringing in the first shown themes of cellphone use. "Caint Use My Phone (Suite)" Track Info. Written By Erykah Badu & Zach Witness. Mixing Engineer Zach Witness. Mastering Engineer Robert Vosgien.

album: "But You Caint Use My Phone" (2015). Caint Use My Phone (Suite) Hi Cel U Lar Device Phone Down U Use To Call Me Mr. Telephone Man U Don't Have To Call What's Yo Phone Number, Telephone (Ghost Of Screw Mix) Dial'Afreaq I'll Call U Back Hello. Caint Use My Phone (Suite)" lyrics provided for educational purposes and personal use only.

When Erykah Badu found out that her friend and collaborator J Dilla passed away in February 2006, her mind reeled. The producer was just 32, felled by a rare blood disease that clogged his body with clots and a case of lupus that caused his immune system to go haywire. Badu thought of a story Dilla's mother told her about her son's dying days, when she would find him having conversations with an unseen companion. Telephone" originally appeared on Badu's 2008 album New Amerykah Part One (4th World War) and it's reprised in chopped-and-screwed form as a tribute to another late rap producer, DJ Screw, on the singer's new mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone. For the 44-year-old ankh-worshipping R&B iconoclast, phones aren't just emoji factories or Candy Crush receptacles-they're mystic devices that can span time and space, heaven and Earth.
