Hold On With Flor At Three Links, Let Live With Of Mice & Men At Canton Hall And Support Local Photographers At Main At South Side.

So Erykah Badu and her crew really know how to throw a birthday party. And we’ve known that for quite some time.

Badu’s birthday celebration at The Bomb Factory last Friday night was pretty much as hoppin’ as you would’ve expected. The party went all the way until 2 a.m. and was closed out by Dave Chappele’s antics — which included covering Prince’s “1999.”

Other guests included Dead Prez, Mos Def, Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, D.R.A.M. and several more. Surely there were many others who didn’t perform at the birthday bash itself but did celebrate Bady’s 47th birthday.

Of course, now we have to wait another year until the local legend has another birthday and, in turn, we also have to wait to see who will show up at the next one. And while that may sound like a bit of a bummer, there’s still plenty to do as you can see from the list of happenings below.
