Eryka Badu

Eryka Badu

Along with D'Angelo and Mary J. Blige, singer Erykah Badu championed the hip-hop/soul movement of the '90s. Her smooth voice, trademark head wrap, and majestic demeanor manifest sentiments of black pride, self-love, and female liberation. Badu's collaborations with the Roots, as well as with jazz bassist Ron Carter, trumpeter Roy Hargrove, and funk vibraphonist Roy Ayers, signify her strong ties to the new and old schools of black music.
