Erykah Badu is a legend and perhaps the most capricious artist in modern soul. Hailed the queen of neo-soul on her arrival in 1997, with the multiplatinum Baduizm, she shrugged off the apparent demise of the genre, instead going deeper and weirder with the incredible New Amerykah Part I album in 2007, for which she enlisted such Academy stalwarts as Madlib, Sa-Ra and 9th Wonder.
In this lecture at the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy, she muses on success, art, motherhood and control – and does some pretty good impressions of “kindred spirits” Madlib and Dilla.
