Tyler, the Creator and Erykah Badu to Star in Adult Swim Police Brutality Musical
The deaths of Eric Garner and Mike Brown at the hands of law enforcement have prompted artists and citizens across the nation to speak out against police brutality and racial injustices.
While many took to social media or even to the studio to vent in the wake of the no indictment decisions police officers received, Tyler the Creator and Erykah Badu are letting their voices be heard through an animated series.
The rapper and singer are partnering up with Adult Swim, home of Odd Future’s ‘Loiter Squad,’ for a ‘Black Dynamite’ episode called ‘The Wizard of Watts,' which will be a musical centered on police brutality.
Although the details surrounding the show are scarce, the episode will apparently feature Black Dynamite leaving on vacation only to return back home to riots and violence. Badu and Tyler will star in the episode alongside Michael Jai White, J.B. Smoove and Tim Blake Nelson.
'The Wizard of Watts' episode will air on Jan. 10, 2015, at 10:30PM EST on Adult Swim.
