The gods must have heard our desperate Hip Hop prayers. Lauryn Hill and Nas are teaming up to do an American tour called “Life Is Good/Black Rage”. Although Lauryn will not be apart of every show on the itinerary she is set for 10 of the shows listed below.
I use the performance platform as an opportunity to express the energy of that moment, and the intention behind it. …I’ve been a long standing rebel against the stale, over-commoditization. As artists, we have opportunity to help the public evolve, raise consciousness and awareness; teach, heal, enlighten and inspire in ways the democratic process may not be able to touch. So we keep it moving.
