20 years ago, Erykah Badu dropped her debut project, Baduizm and gave us all an album that would stand the test of time; it really was/still is amazing. Also, for the last 20 years, she’s been giving fellas (i.e. Andre 3000, Common, The D.O.C., etc.) all the feels with her feminine wiles, aka “Baduizm”. Again, it is amazing.

On Thursday night, Essence honored Ms. Badu at their annual “Black Women in Music” event. Erykah told HipHollywood the honor felt like a “dream”, “It’s just a beautiful thing to be able to express myself in the way that I do, with no barriers, and take my time and create as I go,” the Grammy award-winning artist told us. And men like Master P, Mario and Anthony Hamilton couldn’t help but fawn over the legendary singer calling her things like incredible, amazing and mesmerizing.

Solange was on hand to present Erykah with her award and gushed over the “Tyrone” singer as well. But, it just wasn’t Solo who was enamored. HH spoke with Yara Shahidi, BiBi Bourelly and more who couldn’t help but sing the praise of Badu. Take a look at our coverage from Essence Black Women in Music below.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
