For those of you who are big fans of the Dallas queen of neo soul, Erykah Badu, Dallas Observer did a nice write up on her performance last month with The Roots in Philly. Here’s a snippet:
Back in May, Badu performed at the Roots’ annual Roots Picnic, which takes place each spring at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia. She performed her own set with the Roots playing as her backing band, but the real fireworks of the night came when they turned a mash-up of two of their songs — the Roots’ “Act Too (Love of My Life)” and Badu’s “Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip Hop)” — into, well, an ode to hip hop. And it was pretty awesome, as we now to get to see thanks to a video debuted on Billboard yesterday.
