Dirty & Nasty Breaks Down Erykah Badu's "Window Seat" Video... The Naked One
The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place -lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good- so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things.

This Week's Rapper: Dirty and Nasty
This Week's Subject(s): Erykah Badu's video for "Window Seat" that has everyone Googling "Erykah Badu Window Seat" because they heard she gets naked in it; lobbing insults at Dallas.
AAR: Okay, everyone is going nuts for that new Erykah Badu video, the one where she gets completely naked while walking down the streets of Dallas. We figured you guys - being Dirty and Nasty and all - would be the right guys to help dissect this. A few points, give us your thoughts on each.
First, how lame is Dallas that they still have parking meters that accept coins? Weaksauce. They probably still have segregated bathrooms.
AAR: Have you ever been envious of anyone living in Dallas before watching this? Because we haven't. But the possibility of this happening almost necessitates moving there.
N: Just one: Drea Anita Gwedolyn Roots. Usually Dallas is where dreams go to die. R.I.P. D Block.
AAR: Did you notice the guy in the beginning of the video that was picking up her stuff as she was taking it off? What happened to him? And how did he not know she was going to get naked? New rule: Anytime you see a woman begin to take off her coat and shoes while walking down the street, follow her. Even if she doesn't get naked, she's probably going to do something worth watching.
