Erykah Badu & Odd Future Perform At Fader SXSW Fort

Erykah Badu Tyler the Creator

Erykah Badu knows a thing or two about spotting talented rappers, so it’s no surprise that she came to show love to the head wolf Tyler The Creator from the skyrocketing group Odd Future.

The raucous crew performed cuts from their respective releases like Tyler’s hit single “Yonkers,” while rocking ski masks over their faces and prompting the crowd to chant “Golf Wang” as they stage dove into the audience.

Erykah Badu then took the stage, and played drums with indie duo Matt & Kim, who are credited for inspiring her controversial “Window Seat” video.

After the set, Tyler made sure to tell the world via twitter about his experience with Miss Badu, by saying:

“I Fu**ing Love Her!”

Why We Should Support Positive Black Women And Men

Erykah Badu

Though significant progress has been made relative to racial dynamics, there still remains an abundance of stereotypes about women and men that target their intelligence, beauty and potentiality. For example, with African-American men, we are constantly bombarded with generalizations that we are criminals, uneducated, baby daddies who are absent from the home, devoid of good personal hygiene, intimidated by educated individuals, e.t.c.
