Control Freaq

In 2005, Badu founded Control Freaq Records. Not a typical label, the imprint allowed its artists to use Badu's brand as a platform to grow artistically without physical contracts. Control Freaq's most notable artist, Jay Electronica, is a gifted MC who works closely with Just Blaze and has received co-signs by Diddy, Nas, Jay Z and Mos Def among others. Jay Elec is also Badu's former boyfriend and the father of her third child. Legendary West Coast MC D.O.C. is the father of her second.  (Photo: Erika Goldring / Retna Ltd.)
