Despite facing three years in prison over tax invasion, the Queen of soul music Lauryn Hill hit the stage to perform her ‘Black Rage’ single in Dallas while kicking off rapper Nas’ “Life Is Good” tour 2012, last night.
Here’s what Hill had to say about the ‘Black Rage’ single below:
“Obviously this is a song about confrontation. Black rage is founded on drainin’ and drainin’/ Threatenin’ of freedom to stop your complainin’/ Pausin’ your water while they say it’s rainin’/ Then call you mad for complainin’, complainin’.”
“Try if you must, but you can’t have my soul,” she laughed. “Black rage is founded on ungodly control/ So when the dog fight and when the beat ends, and when I’m feeling sad, I simply remember all these kinds of things and then I don’t fear so bad.”
