New Erykah Badu Mixtape Coming Next Week

Earlier this month, astral-soul genius Erykah Badu released her own seven-minute version of Drake’s “Hotline Bling, calling it “Hotline Bling But You Caint Use My Phone Mix.” She also teased the idea that this would be the first taste of a new mixtape called But You Caint Use My Phone — a title that’s a clear reference to her own eternal-classic 1997 song “Tyrone.” Noisey just published a new interview with Badu, and it includes this exciting tidbit: But You Caint Use My Phone will be out next week. She won’t say who else she’s interpolating on the new mixtape, but she does allow that it will involve “the usual suspects,” and we can only hope this means we’ll hear a Badu “March Madness” freestyle. This will be Badu’s first full-length of any sort since her 2010 album New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), so this is a big deal, and we should all get excited. Read the full interview here.
