Lauryn Hill shares a preview of her take on Nina Simone's "I've Got Life".


Nina Revisited...A Tribute to Nina Simone is coming in only a few weeks, and after hearing Lauryn Hill's cover of Nina's iconic "Feeling Good" performance, Hill has shared yet another contribution to the soundtrack, this one being something of a remix to Simone's "I've Got Life". While technically a preview, we get a pretty good idea of the record over the course of the 2:30 snippet. We're given more of the urgent rapping we heard on Hill's "Neurotic Society" last year, which surprisingly sounds right at home on a reworked version of the instrumental.

Look out for the album July 10th. Usher, Mary J. Blige, and Common are also set to contribute.

Quotable Lyrics:
Listen, watch how the words they twist them
Two thirds of the world turned victim
Subtle energy, and they capture and block
The unseen violence behind the democracy
