Erykah Badu is all things. She is singer, songwriter, performer, actress, mother, auntie, friend, sistah girl and as of late, comedienne. Our favorite analog girl in a digital world took to Twitter Saturday (April 8) to offer advice to anyone needing it in the form of #Askmeananbadu.
While some users questioned Erykah about spirituality, long-distance relationships, how to spice up a 15-year-marriage and confidence, it was user @_LeKiddo_ that wondered about Badu’s hip-hop preferences.

So to avoid any side eyes at the next family cookout, Erykah gave the best answer possible.
