Erykah Badu x New Amerykah Part 2

My philosophy professor brought it up this morning talking about how controversial the media thought this video was, and of course one dude in the class was against the video; I mean dude was genuinely upset - instead of understanding the video and message itself - to the point I started laughing because I thought he was joking. Anyways, Ms. Badu still doing her thing, cop the album New Amerykah Part 2 and enjoy a dose of dopeness. Check the video, which was filmed down in the Dealy District (Elm Streetish) in Dallas.
