This is awesome! Thank you for posting. So glad to see her doing her true form as a poet .
Where can I find some credible info on all this illuminatti entertainment industry stuff? So many holes in what I've been able to see so far on you tube.
I love it, I bet I won't hear this on our airways.
I glad you posted this. I have and always will love Lauryn Hill. She has shown us her beauty since she stepp'd in the music scene come'n off the stage she was boo'ed on.
She has told us many times, which some of us already knew, that music industry can be crooked at times. Just have to listen and learn.
That was a great acoustic performance by her, too bad most won't follow the message in the song and stay away from today's wicked music industry.
I had this album for about 5 years - and loved it ....
She is so talented and the message is so profound. All I can say to this video is.... WOW!
When I used to listen to White folk--I heard one say of Lenin, a leader in the Socialist Revolution in Russia, that he was a "First-Grade Philosopher." To mean that he never left the first-grade.
That quotation comes to mind with so many artifacts Black folk put up as wisdom.
I mean--all of our children know that the music industry is bad for us. ALL OF THEM. That's first-grade knowledge. When are we going to advance beyond that?
Every one of us here as children knew that the music industry was bad. If you didn't write "I didn't." But most of us also thought that there was nothing better. Today Maddox is fighting for the Community to get back public affairs programming. Black folk lost Public Affairs programming last year--and only Maddox is fighting for it. That's what's happening today!
Today as we type, Maddox is fighting for us to have Public Affairs programming and few people are supporting him.
We have to think about dropping knowledge on our people beyond "Something's bad." It's too hard to organize us when we keep repeating the First-Grade.
To wit--no disrespect to Lauryn Hill. Her Mystery of Iniquity (from the same album?) is fire. This however seems first-grade. I dislike how I have to explain to folk on the street that White folk hate them. Really, if we just drilled that in our heads, we could go somewhere. Every one of us though thinks that we are the exception or we met the exception. SMH.
"I dislike how I have to explain to folk on the street that White folk hate them. Really, if we just drilled that in our heads, we could go somewhere. Every one of us though thinks that we are the exception or we met the exception. SMH."
Once in awhile I run across those folks who thinks that they are the exception. The sad thing is that most of these folks grew up in the 60s and the 70s.
