It’s been a rough year for Lauryn Hill, but she still remains strong.
Finally joining Nas on their dual “Life Is Good/Black Rage” Tour, Lauryn Hill decided to share some deep thoughts with her fans in Dallas last night.
Amid pleading guilty for tax evasion and facing up to three years in prison, Lauryn presented her latest sentiments titled “Black Rage.”
Lauryn explained the track as being about “confrontation,” as she delivered the piece as a spoken word, rhyming:
“Black rage is founded, who fed us self hatred/lies and abuse while we waited and waited/spiritual treason, this grid and it’s cages/Black rage is founded on these kinds of things/Black rage is founded on drainin’ and drainin’/ Threatenin’ of freedom to stop your complainin’/ Pausin’ your water while they say it’s rainin’/ Then call you mad for complainin’, complainin’/old time bureaucracy druggin the youth/black rage is founded on blocking the truth.”
Talk about thought-provoking.
Lauryn and Nas will continue their tour in Houston, Texas tonight.
