Red Bull Music Academy presents A Conversation with Erykah Badu

Erykah Badu has been re-defining soul music since 1997, and that isn’t something you can plan – it comes from within. Come get shots straight from Mama’s Gun as the queen of future vintage sits down on the Red Bull Music Academy’s lecture couch to talk about artistic freedom, motherhood, and controversy, all the while staying true to her voice.

Erykah Badu

Erykah Badu needs little introduction. Her seminal works like Baduizm and the New AmErykah series have successively upped the ante in terms of what can be done within the soul spectrum, fusing cosmic b-girl bravado with the forward-thinking sounds of producers like the Soulquarians, Madlib, and Flying Lotus to create a sonically varied body of work, selling millions of albums in the process. Erykah Badu also heads up her own record label, Control FreaQ, and has even been caught on the ones and twos recently, as the mysterious DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown.

    @RBMA Is this conversation (Erykah with Chairman Mao, 2013) available online? http://t.co/bBWri4QMeV I can't seem to find the whole thing.
