After a short hiatus, Out Da Box TV returns with an extra special new episode. This week, we feature the amazingly talented and accomplished Songstress “Erykah Badu”. Yes! we were fortunate to share the time in an intimate Question and Answer with the Queen of Neo Soul. Erykah spoke affectionately on everything from her love for music, balancing her career with life as a mother, embracing all that she is, despite previous stereotypes, and the depth and significance of the Window Seat Video.
Erykah also took the time to speak on the mind state of the people of the world, with regards to love and family in 2011. She stated “that people want to be seen as good in the eyes of whatever that made us. They want to be loved, they want to work with pride”. We were also fortunate enough to capture some amazing performance footage from her as well. I’m so proud and excited to share it with you. This is just a testament to the growth of Out Da Box TV and the wonderful things to come in the near future. We hope you are inspired!
this video just reminded me of the time back in 2004 when i went to a house party in brooklyn for m-1. (or was it for stic man? can’t remember. lol) i was all excited to be in the room with the dead prez crew. then a pregnant erykah badu walks in and i almost fainted!!! love that woman!
Video of Erykah Badu spinning at Bardot a couple months back in Miami…
“Back in January, Erykah (aka Lo Down Loretta Brown) asked me to come down to Miami to film a DJ set she was slated to perform alongside Dead Prez and Supanova. The night before the show, I kicked it hard with Erykah, her manager Paul, and her DJ, Ringo. On the day of the show, we hung in the trailer with the Last Poets and Supanova. One thing I’ve learned from my many years in the industry is that every artist has a specific idiosyncratic pre-show routine. Supanova showed his colors early, coaxing the team into outdoor stretching exercises. With sound mind and sound body, we hit the venue, where an excited crowd got to see their favorite artist’s deejaying alter ego spin a thorough classic(s) set.” -( via Creative Control)
