Video: Erykah Badu, “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long”

If you’re hustle has you midweek destroyed, stop reading about how wrong the judge just did tiny thief Lindsay Lohan and turn towards Erykah. Flying Lotus directed this video for “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long” from her new New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh— in it Erykah’s got an embellished, long head-veil on, is moving effortlessly down an illustrated production line. She’s almost 40, guys. For a second at the very end, the smooth funk ramps to alarm-fire. But no chafe, it’s just a lift off to planet love ankh, where perhaps Erykah will join Alice Coltrane, FlyLo’s great aunt, in her increasingly measureless later-life.
