Erykah Badu Celebrates Her Birthday With an Adoring Dallas
CommentPosted by Susan on 28-02-2017

dmagazine.comBadu was joined by Pete Rock, Leon Bridges, Dave Chappelle, Cedric The Entertainer, and half of Dallas for her annual birthday bounce at the Bomb Factory.

Dallas celebrated 20 years of Baduizm and 46 years of Badu Sunday night at the Bomb Factory’s sold-out concert in honor of the neo-soul queen’s birthday. Plenty of Badu’s friends and fellow Dallas musicians came out to support her, including DJ Sober, Sam Lao, Bobby Sessions, and Leon Bridges—whose short but sweet set included only “Coming Home” and Ginuwine’s “Pony.”
 
Badu’s performance was preceded by a DJ set from legendary producer Pete Rock, who was then joined on stage by rapper Talib Kweli for an energetic performance. After Kweli left the stage, Houston-bred rapper Scarface took it over and gave a solo performance before a jam session ensued. Following a long pause, Badu’s excellent band took the stage and the birthday girl joined them after several minutes of the Cannabinoids singing, “Badu, Badu, Badu” to a funky rhythm. Badu knows how to command a room, and the performance was a testament to her legendary status and the dedicated following in her home town.
 
She welcomed the audience with a breezy rendition of “Hello,” before warning first-timers that they would leave neurologically recalibrated. Her performance did not disappoint, giving the crowd nearly two hours of her soulful, powerhouse sound. More than just a concert, the party truly was a celebration of Badu and her momentous career, not just for the audience, but for the artists, too, and this shone through in all of their joyful performances.

HERE ARE THE SPECIAL GUESTS FOR ERYKAH BADU'S 46TH BIRTHDAY BASH.
CommentPosted by Susan on 24-02-2017

 
Leon Bridges, Hip-Hop Icons Pete Rock and Talib Kweli Top List Of Special Guests Slated To Appear At Erykah Badu’s 46th Birthday Bash At The Bomb Factory On Sunday.
 
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Erykah Badu isn’t just a Dallas treasure; she’s arguably Dallas’ greatest treasure. She’s had ample opportunity to leave town throughout the years, but she’s always staunchly stayed true to her Dallas roots, actively doing her part to better the city and shine a spotlight upon its many talented creatives. The influence she’s had on the city and upon those around her, as evidenced by this stellar recent profile on her by Zac Crain for D Magazine, is simply not to be discounted.
 
Badu, in no uncertain terms, is Dallas royalty. And, as is now annual tradition, she holds court at the Bomb Factory each year as he hosts a birthday celebration, during which she calls upon a number of her famous friends — both from in and out of the local market — to join in on the fun.

Erykah Badu has shared a decades-old clip of her performing “On & On” at an open mic night in Brooklyn in 1995. “I guess you just gotta take that first leap…huh? One night I did,” she captioned the video on Facebook.

To introduce her, Solange stepped up to read a celebratory speech from her phone, “because she is a digital girl in a digital world.” Watch Solange’s speech, along with performance clips, below, and scroll down to witness Badu’s untouchable red-carpet game.

“She is mother, she is sister, she is friend, she is auntie, she is chief, she is warrior of many tribes,” Solange said. “Empress of the mystic women, ruler of the free. ... And she has been that for 20 years.” She added, “She is a beautiful reminder that you cannot put us in the box,” before quoting Badu: “Look, I choose peace but say, ‘Don’t walk up on me wrong, because this tea and incense can turn into a Colt 45 and Newports if need be.” Read more.

The Elusive Erykah Badu
CommentPosted by Susan on 27-01-2017

  

dmagazine.comTwenty years ago, she dropped Baduizm, the album that created a genre. I wanted to know how she did it and found something I hadn’t bargained for.

If you go looking for Erykah Badu, you will likely never find her, even though it seems like she’s always around. It’s like catching a butterfly: you have to wait for it to come to you. If you chase it, if you try to keep it for yourself, it will flutter away, always just out of reach. You’ll lose it.
 
But maybe you shouldn’t try to catch it. Maybe you should simply be happy it’s there at all, marvel at how it brightens up the day and the energy it brings with it, enjoy being in its presence. Why do you really want to capture it, anyway?
 
Maybe it’s best to let Erykah flit in and out of your life. Isn’t it better to stumble upon her outside of a head shop in a strip center off Garland Road? That happened to me one night while out for an evening walk with my son. She was low-key glamorous in baggy jeans and a sparkly puff of hair, winking as she passed by, and it was just a moment, but it was a Moment, five seconds that live in my head like an hour.
