Lauryn Hill Releases 'Black Rage (Sketch)', Dedicates It to Ferguson


Lauryn Hill


The track, which is a re-interpretation of 'My Favorite Things', was first performed live by the singer during her 'Life Is Good' tour in 2012.

Lauryn Hill has just released the "sketch" version of "Black Rage". In a Twitter post she sent out on Wednesday, August 20 along with the link to her SoundCloud page, she says the recording is old and she made it in her living room.

The version is rough. Over acoustic guitar riffs and children's voices, Hill sings about racial inequity and abuse. "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."

"Black Rage" is a re-interpretation of "My Favorite Things". The song was first performed live by Hill in 2012, during a show on her "Life Is Good" tour.

Hill dedicates the sketch version to the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, who are still searching for justice following the tragic death of Michael Brown.
