Kansas City, MO – Janelle Monae's recent album The ArchAndroid was produced by Outkast, along with Sean "Diddy" Combs. She's performed across the US and Europe, but at age 24, Janelle Monae has yet to play in or around her own hometown of Kansas City, Kansas. That's until this weekend. KCUR's Susan Wilson recently caught up with her over the phone.
Janelle Monae performs Saturday at Liberty Hall in Lawrence, along with the band Of Montreal.
