Bellas and fellas, I need a little break. I have been working on one of those long posts for y’all (Side Hustlin’, coming soon), but it feels like my life’s moving faster than my fingers can. As I said yesterday, my parents are in town for the month, my work deadlines don’t move for anybody, and besides all of that I’m trying to fit in as much Afrobella time as possible. But tonight, I’m throwing it all to the wind and letting my hair down. I’m abandoning all responsibility and going to see this fierce bella right here!
I. Cannot. Wait. I’ve only seen Erykah once — 1999 at the Bob Marley Festival here in Miami. To prove how absolutely long ago that was, Lauryn Hill was the headliner and she brought out her little baby Zion to serenade him with “a new song off her latest album.”. My, what a difference a decade has made.
Erykah’s touring with The Roots, and I love, love, love The Roots so much. They put it down so hard, and the band is just tight. I’m ready for a sick performance by two of my favorite artists. I’ll be back with a fresh post tomorrow to tell you all about it!
Here I come!
My homie Jonathan Cunningham interviewed Questlove, and wrote an interesting article leading up to tonight’s performance. Click here to read it!
