The troubled Fugees frontwoman is back in style with a brand new single.
While her tax situation has been the focus of news in recent years, Lauryn Hill has finally taken a step to silence nay-sayers and leaked a brand new track. Apparently put out against her better judgement (she writes ” I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music…”) the track is a startling collision of rolling, dusty drum breaks and bubbling synthesizers with everything held together by an assured, hungry performance from Hill herself.
It would be all too easy to pass off her words as merely ‘conscious’ rap but Hill has always had a poignance to her words and observations, and notes “In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!”. It’s good to have you back Ms Hill.
