Erykah Badu is the latest celeb to join the trend and she's teamed with Fancorps to form her official street team. Fancorps is a street team management company that utilizes Web 2.0 to "build, organize, maintain, and manage a grass-roots street team." They provide the software (for a fee, o' course) and artists get their fans to join and spread the word online and off.
Team Badu currently has a few hundred members and every time I refresh my browser more have joined. That's a good look for Erykah. People are definitely hungry for her highly anticipated release New AmErykah. I haven't joined Team Badu (yet) but while I fill out my app I'll groove to one of my faves from Worldwide Underground.
