Our beloved Afrocentric beauty, Erykah Badu, flaunts her fro on the cover of D Magazine‘s September issue amongst other high rollers from her city of Dallas. The special anniversary issue, entitled “The Dallas 40,” takes a look at Badu’s journey from humble southern beginnings to becoming one of the biggest soul singers around today. Erykah’s personal story ends with a touching statement saying, “Whether she likes it or not, Badu is a celebrity. But she’s still ours.” It’s just something about that Texas pride. Erykah rides for Dallas just like Bey rides for H-town.
Excited about the story, Ms. Badu did some self promotion of the anniversary issue herself tweeting, “Sept issue of @DMagazine Doin it for the D . Started from the bottom. This ones for …. #americandream”.
Kudos to Ms. Badu for bringing some caramel flavor to the cover and reminding everyone that black girls rock.
