Check out Lauryn Hill's return to music
We recently reported that Lauryn Hillwas planning her return to music and a fan has taken this video of the former Fugee debuting a new track during her current tour with Nas.
The song entitled 'Black Rage' is Hill's first single in two years and she explained the track last month; "I use the performance platform as an opportunity to express the energy of that moment, and the intention behind it. I've been a long standing rebel against the stale, over commoditization. As artists we have opportunity to help the public evolve, raise consciousness and awareness, teach, heal, enlighten and inspire in ways the democratic process may not be able to touch. So we keep it moving."
