Erykah Badu and Q-Tip in Trace Magazine: You’ll Watch Black Orpheus and Like It|Celebrity News

Ah, finally, as bubbled last month, Erykah Badu and Q-Tip are the cover story of this month’s Trace magazine. Shout to Concreteloop for reminding me to circle back to the site.

Erykah Badu spoke of how much she was inspired by A Tribe Called Quest and the Native Tongues movement. Amen to that. The Native Tongues opened the doors for all the ‘freaqs’ in rap and if you were a singer, neo-soul became your thing.

Q-Tip and Erykah spoke of each other as good friends: they exchange beats, ideas, critiques, sometimes her kids talk to him during one of their IM sessions. I think they made it clear it’s all strictly on a family ties level.

Asked when they’re going to collaborate, Erykah recalled this. “I went over to his house in New Jersey and even before we started talking about music, he said, ‘Be quiet, let’s just sit down, I want to show you a movie.’ He showed me Black Orpheus and it was like, ‘Wow’ We went down to the basement and started to do beats, and he came up with this really funky guitar loop, and I was like ‘this is it.’” source

    I like the pictures of Erykah Badu, and Willow’s sense of experimentation. but the model in the Balenciaga picture looks like she just came out of a concentration camp; ghastly skinny.
