These Are The Best Moments From Erykah Badu’s Reddit AMA!

We’ve compiled a list of our favorite moments from Erykah Badu’s Reddit AMA the other week. Read on, and get tickets to see her live on Friday, January 15 at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas!

In case you’re wondering if you have a chance with Erykah Badu…

What do you look for in a man? …Asking for a friend.

Tell your friend… I look for sober minded, compassion in an intelligent thug type.

If you’re looking for some Badu-approved rappers…

Who are your favorite new school rappers?

Kids from Devine Council, Earl Sweatshirt, Thugger, John Poppy, Wiz, Future, Kanye still in there, Gucci still in there…

Or a Badu-approved read…

Any books that you recommend?

The Physics Of Love by Tesla / Keely

She also spoke a lot about her work…

Do you get scared before you release a project about if people will like it or not?

Naw. I never ask people if they like my work. It’s already done by then. I just wanna know how it makes them feel. What does it inspire them to do. Hopefully if they hate it enough they’ll be inspired to protest about it… or do their own.

What do you consider to be the most important message in your music?

Be you.

I’ve been following your work for a few years now. You’ve made some of the most outstanding music of your time. How would you say your style has developed over the years?

I think that I’ve evolved with the times. Put me on Uranus (that’s what she…) and I’ll make it work. I’m pretty mutable, I think.

And we now know how Erykah Badu likes to spend her days…

What is a typical day in your life like?

I take kids to school when I’m home. I hustle on something, marketing or music… I cook dinner… I try to meditate with some tea in a bath of sea salt.

And when she realized she was truly special…

When did you realize you had magical powers?

When I was about 4 and realized that I could make the sun follow me while riding in the car with mommy.

She also gave us this special moment…

Why do fools fall in love?

To get to the other side?
