Lauryn Hill – Black Rage

laurynhill

In the wake of unrest in Ferguson, MO, Lauryn Hill has shared an old demo and unsettling tribute to these tragic events entitled “Black Rage.” Rendering the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic, “My Favorite Things,” into a raw, emotionally-charged piece on racial injustice, never has Hill’s musical prowess been so on point.

Although she’s been performing the song live since 2012, MLH tweeted the track earlier this week, calling on peace for the people of Missouri. Stream the simultaneously macabre and magnificent cover below.

An old sketch of Black Rage, done in my living room. Strange, the course of things. Peace for MO.” – MLH
