It’s like catching a butterfly: you have to wait for it to come to you. Maybe you should simply be happy it’s there at all, marvel at how it brightens up the day and the energy it brings with it, enjoy being in its presence. Maybe it’s best to let Erykah flit in and out of your life.

If you chase it, if you try to keep it for yourself, it will flutter away, always just out of reach. Isn’t it better to stumble upon her outside of a head shop in a strip center off Garland Road?

The girl who was delivered to the world on February 26, 1971 has one sister and one brother but her father walked away from the family when she was still a little.

Her mother had to fight for their existence by engaging in several jobs as an actress.

It was the exact same thing that influenced Badu to choose her career path later, While still a four year old, she was taken by her mother to perform and dance at Dallas Theater center.

Coming to the age of teen, she has been quite apt in freestyling that eventually led her to meet beatboxer Ray Hargrove.

And it was so much better that way, to have Erykah swoop into my life unexpectedly, to stand 5 feet away while she led a three-piece band (that later grew to include Q-Tip as well), playing to a small crowd like she was onstage at The Bomb Factory in front of thousands.

I have a photo from that night, but even that feels like I went too far, trapping the significance behind filters, cropping it, diluting the purity of it.

Dave East stopped by Ebro In The Morning to talk about his new LP which has features from Nas, Jeezy, Wiz Khalifa French Montana and Chris Brown.

The crew asked him about working with Queens legend Prodigy, the soulful Erykah Badu and what it feels like to be a "sex symbol" because according to many women out there, he's their MCM always.

Or maybe you happened to be at Dealey Plaza the day she filmed her video for “Window Seat,” slowly disrobing until she stood where JFK had been shot, naked, in and out in one take, here and gone so quickly you could hardly believe what you’d just seen. Shouldn’t you want to be on the rooftop patio of a local restaurant for a 40th birthday party, and then suddenly Erykah Badu is there? The party was for a guy I barely know, a man of means who also brought in A Tribe Called Quest’s charismatic leader, Q-Tip, for a DJ set that night.

He invited me because he thought I’d enjoy the musical acts he’d hired, which he had kept secret from all of his guests as a present to them.
