Indy: So I understand Erykah Badu is among the artists who’ve sat in with you recently. How’s that album you’re doing with her coming?
Flying Lotus: It’s dope, man. I feel like I’m taking it where I need to go, and she’s taking it where she needs to go. Yeah, I think it’s cool, you know? Our universes collide and we make a very beautiful thing happen hopefully.
Indy: She’s a pretty deep person, and not just musically. Have you two gotten much of a chance to talk?
FL: Absolutely, yeah, it’s a good match. We both vibe on some very serious stuff. You know, there’s always connections beyond the music. It’s like we come from similar places spiritually. Right out of the gate, we were like, “Oh yeah, we’re from the same tribe, ain’t we?”
