That Time Erykah Badu Made Less Than $4 Busking in New York City

Erykah Badu probably should’ve contacted Joshua Bell for tips before embarking on a busking experiment in New York City.

Last week, Badu, 43, shared a video of her recent busking excursion.

It wasn’t very successful.

“This short film was shot w/ my iPhone and edited in iMovie for entertainment purposes only and serves as a personal ‘hustle’ experiment for me,” Badu wrote on Facebook in a disclaimer about how the video shouldn’t be taken as a diss to the homeless.
