Watch Erykah Badu Play Rita Marley In ‘Black Dynamite’

The singer has provided the voice to Bob Marley’s widow for the latest episode of Adult Swim’s ‘Black Dynamite’. 

Based on the 2009 film of the same name, Adult Swim’s ‘Black Dynamite’ is a loving parody of the blaxploitation films of the 1970’s. Previous episodes of the show have seen the eponymous protagonist and his crew have run ins with fictionalized versions of icons of the past, including Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Richard Pryor. This newest episode – which you can watch via the decidedly grainy clip below, sees the characters rub shoulders with Bob Marley – voiced by up and coming Chicago emcee Chance The Rapper, and his wife Rita Marley – played by Erykah Badu. Check it out if you’ve ever wanted to see a cartoon Bob Marley on a tandem hang glider in the dead of night…
