Video: Erykah Badu Selected As Serato Icon Artist

Erykah Badu also known as "Analog Girl in a Digital World (okay, player?)" is honored as part of serato's icon artist series. In spite of the temptation to label her as the artist who introduced musicality and soul back into mechanical music, Badu speaks here on her deep affinity for hip-hop in all it's forms and her career as a DJ, or as she prefers selector--something she describes as a central role in today's music world "Right now we're in 2012 AD, where the DJ is now the star...the DJ is the weatherman; the DJ dictates what the weather is."
