Is the afro going animated? The 1990s neo-soul queen Erykah Badu has announced that she's collaborating with one of hip-hops most innovative — and enigmatic — supergroups. "I'm working on a project with The Gorillaz," she told the Wall Street Journal today. "That’s the art that I’m focusing on right now for the most part."
Badu, who is also working on an album with Flying Lotus, wants her fans to know that her frequent breaks from recording doesn't mean she's phasing out of the limelight. "I’m always doing something. It doesn’t always make headlines, but I’m always making art — always. I deliver babies. That’s what I do — I’m a midwife.”
