The ’90s were a strange time for hip-hop and R&B. Largely defined by big-budget music videos and too-hood-for-school thug caricatures, the decade strayed far from the positive vibes espoused by forefathers like De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest. Mercifully, a reprieve from the shiny suit era arrived via the warm gust of neo soul, perhaps in no form more glorious than Erykah Badu’s 1997 debut, Baduizm. For her forthcoming tour, she’ll be performing the album in its entirety. The 16th anniversary seems like an odd one to celebrate, but hey, it saved us from Puff Daddy way back when, so we’re not complaining
