Tony Neal, founder of the Core, made the announcement on his Twitter on February 4.
“Big move today. @fatbellybella (Erykah Badu’s Twitter handle) in the Core. My sis is a serious DJ,” he said.
While the move may come as a shock for some, Badu has quietly been honing her DJ skills in small, intimate venues.
She said, “I am honored and do not take it for granted. b-girl for life . head wrapped and strapped.”
Badu will reportedly don the DJ moniker DJ Loretta Brown when she is on the wheels of steel.
The singer/producer/songwriter will be DJ’ing all weekend as the NFL Super Bowl takes place in her hometown of Dallas, TX.
