Erykah Badu is outraged at the state of the game, and who could blame her? Although there’s some great music out there, there’s also a plethora of garbage electro-rap sweeping across blogs, championed by so-called ‘tastemakers.’ I mean this was cool three years ago when nobody was doing it, but this is becoming the new ‘crunk’ bandwagon for people to jump on. Venting on her Twitter account, the songstress wrote, “how y’all gone stand by and let our music turn into pop techno cornball a$$ music. We don’t own our music no more. Come to think of it, did we EVER own it? when I say own our music , I’m not talkin bout the artist I’m talkin bout the people….these rappers ought to be shame of they damn selves.” In what could be one of the most intelligent statements I’ve heard all year, Badu tweeted,”if you’ve never tasted good p*ssy your satisfied with ass hole. (that’s terrible ain’t it).” Well said; all you youngins go listen to some Tribe and pre-2000 Outkast.
In other news, Jay Electonica’s baby’s mama met Bobby Brown yesterday….that’s every woman’s dream, right?
