Back in 2012, Lauryn Hill was on the "Life Is Good" tour and decided to debut a track called “Black Rage”, which we never heard of again. Well after the recent incidents in Ferguson Missouri, Lauryn figured today was an appropriate time to revisit that record and release a “sketch” version of it, which she says was recorded in her living room.
Dedicating the song to Ferguson, Lauryn delivers this powerful new record that focuses on the of effects of racial inequity and abuse. Its acoustic sound acts as a great compliment to the meaning behind the record and is a real tribute for what's happening in America right now. Preach Lauryn, preach.
Black rage is founded on two-thirds a person
Rapings and beatings and suffering that worsens
Black human packages tied up in strings
Black rage can come from all these kinds of things
