I’m convinced that Erykah Badu has mystical magical powers.  She has an undeniable aura that sucks you in like a magnet.  If you ask any of her three children’s fathers, they all may be inclined to say the same.  Here she is with The D.O.C. – well known for his work with super group N.W.A., with their beautiful daughter Puma.  The D.O.C is a hip hop staple as one of the founding members and writers of N.W.A. material, having worked on the legendary Dr. Dre “The Chronic” album – and putting out 2 solo albums, any real rap head knows his work.  

After a bad car accident that crushed his vocal cords, it took nearly 7 years before he would record again, and after rehabilitation and surgery, he’s regained full use of his voice.  He’s currently working on an album yo be released and possibly a biopic.

Outside of that,  he speaks of Erykah being one of his best friends.  In a recent interview with VLAD TV titled “How Three Legendary MC’s co-parent with Erykah Badu” He’s actively involved in his daughter’s life…even though he lives in L.A.  and Erykah resides in Georgia.  

Erykah has a daughter (Mars) with the acclaimed Jay Electronica, and also a son (Seven) with Andre 3000 of Outkast.  

D.O.C. says they all get along well, and he’s good friends with both Jay and Dre.  I’m sure Ms. Badu has some voodoo in her brew some way some how with all this harmony. I’m kidding, but it seriously makes one go hmmmmmmmm….lol.

I think it’s awesome the way her blended family works, and I nothing but love and respect for her as a mother, and as a artist.  She’s the definition of DOPE.

Anywho, check out this video below of The D.O.C. from VLAD TV to get the scoop from him directly….

Who better to get to style a black experience inspired fashion show than Erykah Badu?!!!  Pyer Moss AW16 show alongside designer Kerby Jean-Raymond, which explores the black experience in Contemporary America has selected Erykah Badu to direct their style on the runway.

This will be a continuation of last season’s ode to the Black Lives Matter movement, Pyer Moss’s AW16 presentation will address the disjointed experience of being black in 2016 America — namely by addressing the “double bind” that is living in “a place where black culture is praised, commodified, and appropriated, while black people are vilified, criticized, and hunted for sport.

It’s the perfect topic that Erykah Badu has been very vocal about, adding that she and Kerby are a match made in fashion heaven.  Both share an eye for truth through art.  Erykah known for always being visually pleasing, believes that although the designer is risky, he stands in his truth.  “The strength of that truth lies in the belief of his vision.  I’m inspired by the bold statements he makes in this sometimes fickle industry” Badu says.  I agree with her on that note, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing her vision on the runway.
