Video: Erykah Badu Making Beats Live at Rock The Bells 2011
Continuing her second career as a beatmaker (OK, third career–she is a doula also) Erykah Badu got her drum padding on at Rock The Bells 2011 here in New York (the audio is a little crunchy but that just lets you know her bass is nasty). The interesting thing is when she makes beats, she seems to on some “Planet Rock” meets crunk type shit–it almost sounds like she is making beats more for D.O.C. than herself. But then she gets back on the mic and you realize dude might have been rapping about her when he said Noone Can Do It Better.
