Atlanta, GA – even Though the message was a bit touch-and-go, it seems like an album of Ari Lennox still has a good chance of getting.

As she told HipHopDX after their headlining Red Bull Music Festival of Atlanta in the performance "may be 25 years old," but for its loyal fanbase, that's better than nothing..centered-ad {

After you get out of the rain and into their bus for our interview, it is easy to see why Ari contains Shea Butter Baby so close to your heart. Despite the long line of journalists waiting to talk with her in a drizzling 1 in the morning, when she speaks of her debut, Ari's smile shines hotter than the scented candle she is burning.

"This album is very special, and I think that is because I took my time," she says to DX.

Your milestone marking the full year with a debut album, first headlining tour and the Grammy nomination — has been for almost a decade.
