Side note: her mashup performance of “On & On” and Fela Kuti‘s “Sorrow Tears And Blood” with The Roots on Fallon needs to be released officially.
Erykah Badu was the latest participant in Pitchfork’s lighthearted “Over/Under” series, and what began as a simple session turned into a unconventionally humorous conversation. Aliens, period tracker apps (that’s a thing?!) airline safety videos (have you ever seen the ones on Virgin Airlines flights? They’re less “safety videos” and more “music videos”” than anything), and saying Fred Flintstone might have “ran through all the hoes in Bedrock” is one thing. But when Erykah starts getting into a story on how she swallowed some weed while driving because of some light-up sneakers is when everything is out of control.
