Erykah Badu, Tyler, The Creator to lend voices to Adult Swim 'Black Dynamite' episode on police brutality


Music stars Erykah Badu and Tyler, The Creator will be among a handful of stars lending their voices to a special upcoming episode of Adult Swim’s popular animated series, “Black Dynamite.”

The episode titled, “The Wizard of Watts,” will take on police brutality and racial tension in the wake of nationwide protests in the aftermath of police killings of several unarmed Black men across the country. After being hit in the head with a brick, Black Dynamite hallucinates about being in the land of “Oz-Watts” during the 1965 Watts riots.

This will be the second appearance for both Badu and Tyler on Adult Swim. Comedian J.B. Smoove and actor Tim Blake Nelson are also set to appear on the episode.

Since it’s inception, “Black Dynamite” has welcomed a number of artists to guest star on the show. Most recently, emerging Chicago emcee Chance The Rapper lent his voice to portray the legendary Bob Marley.

“The Wizard of Watts” episode will air Saturday, Jan. 10 at 10:30 p.m. EST on Cartoon Network.
