Do You BaDU or BaDON'T?

Erykah Badu, everyone's fave self-help-y female-empowerment soul singer, dished out a fair portion of whoop-ass to the music industry in a quote recently, basically putting it out there that all of hip-hop has majorly sold out to the EDM-machine. As she puts it, " U dont give up the boom bip and the hump 4 the payday. I love house and techno as a side dish. But now it’s served as the main course AND that’s ALL u gone get." What do you think? Seems to me she's totally ignoring the whole Chromeo-Daft Punk-etc return to funk craze, but idk, maybe I don't get what she means by the "boom bip and the hump" exactly (which she uses several times in her interview, by the way).  Enjoy the full story here and let us know if you're on #teamErykah or if you think she's whack!

    Hey there! I’m 20 years old and comming up in a world where music is chinnagg for the worst! I was always into hip hop, rap, and R&B. But lately i’ve been turning my radio on stastions where they play old school, classical music, or when im really fed up, country music! lol Music plays a big part in my life, very natural for an African American individual. But Music is so poluted with money, sex, and drugs! I’m tired of it. To get to the point, I’m very fresh to this neo soul thing. At first I didn’t know where to start but my boyfriend took my phone and download a crap load of Erykah, Jill, and some Lauryn. I fell in love with music all over again. It was real. Not all about nonsence but real things that go on in everyday life. It’s REAL POETRY. Not all people can relate to gangbang’n, sell’n bricks, make’n babies, and drink’n goose until you’re too drunk to be alive! I went all the way. I cut my permed ends of and rock’n the natural me (5 months girl!). I love it. It’s the best thing for me. I’m getting to know the real me in the process. I’m a christian girl that love to have a lot of fun and just flat out being me. I want the neo soul look. Clothse, bags, hair products, accessories EVERYTHING. I’m thirsty for it. I was once afriad to be different. I wanted to be like the girls at school. Not anymore. Neo soul is not a trend. It’s a trend setter.Thnx for reading. Face me.Jullisa
