Erkyah Badu promises her new mixtape will drop next week.
Erkyah Badu came out of the woodwork recently, after being inspired by Drake, to release her own rendition of “Hotline Bling.” The song was released with the promise of a forthcoming mixtape, You Caint Use My Phone. Almost a complete month later, and Ms. Badu promises that the mixtape is arriving very soon, like, next week.
During a new interview with Noisey, Erkyah speaks on the artists she thinks are pushing boundaries in hip-hop/r’n’b, like she once did, naming Drake, Young Thug and Tyler, The Creator, among others. She also gives her thumbs up for the whole Meek/Drake beef, saying she “loved it.”
