The last time we brought you news from the world of Erykah Badu, she was rocking a blonde faux-hawk and shaking down a payday loan center with Rick Ross. Now, our soul hero is coasting through the Planet of the Ankhs in the funkadelic video for her Paul McCartney-sampling(!) jam “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long”, a highlight from last year’s New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh album.
In other Badu news, the singer, who DJs under the alias DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown, has been inducted to the worldwide DJ coalition The Core DJs. “I am honored and do not take it for granted,” she tweeted. “B-girl for life. Head wrapped and strapped.” Check out a photo of her intergalactic set-up during a Super Bowl weekend gig in Dallas via Rap-Up.com.
