On January 10, Adult Swim cartoon Black Dynamite will air a musical special about police brutality called “The Wizard Of Watts” featuring characters voiced by Erykah Badu and Tyler The Creator. Erykah Badu is a ball of fun and Tyler’s personality is very outside of the box. Things are going to get interesting.
During the 1 hour-long episode, the show’s hero Black Dynamite will be hit with a brick by a rioter while he’s at a protest against police brutality. After being knocked unconscious, in a surreal world he will fight to protect the citizens from the “corrupt police”.
Police Brutality is definitely an issue in our society right now. With the deaths of Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Tamar Rice, and now Antonio Martin this episode comes at a critical pertinent time.
The show airs January 10th at 10;30 pm EST. Make sure you catch it.
