Live review: Erykah Badu @ the Fillmore Auditorium

In the 13 years since the release of Erykah Badu’s groundbreaking first album “Baduizm,” the Dallas-born entertainer has consistently done her own thing. Using hip-hop and classic soul as her foundation, Badu has accented her music and live shows with whatever artistic movement she’s crushing on at the moment -- be it religious mysticism, modern dance, science-fiction film, performance poetry or gangsta rap.
