SATURDAY MATINÉE: Erykah Badu At Red Bull Music Academy Madrid 2011

Erykah Badu’s RBMA lecture at their Madrid 2011 event is our Saturday Matinée feature presentation.

She might have spoken at the New York event this year but back in 2011, Erykah Badu gave a RBMA lecture in Madrid (hosted by Now Again Records owner Egon). The “Queen of Neo Soul” touched upon a number of topics regarding everything from her relationship with Dilla to the humble beginnings of her vibrant career, where she started out as a MC before her singing was discovered on a tape she had released. Badu’s relationship with social networks was also mentioned, including her tweet about Motown folding causing a mini uproar (it was misheard). Whoops!
