New ERYKAH video

Erykah Badu's two albums in the "New Amerykah" series has been fenomenal and some of the best LPs of their respective years. Badu is a soulful and independent woman who's always just being herself, here over beats and brakes of soul, hip-hop, classic blues and a large dose of funk. The soundscapes on these two albums came from Sa-Ra, Madlib, J Dilla, Kareem Riggins, James Poyser, ?uestlove and Badu herself amongst others. I strongly recommend you to pick up, or at least check them out, sure it's labeled as soul music but the truth is that Erykah is more hip-hop than the majority of rappers calling themeselves emcees these days.

The video is the second one from her "Return Of The Ankh" album, volume II in the series, and the song is the Biggie tribute paying "Fall in Love (Your Funeral)". This one is produced by the one and only Karieem Riggins, an incredible beatmaker and drummer that's worked closely with J Dilla, Herbie Hancock, The Roots and Common amongst others.
