♫ Deafening silence and… social control… ♫

This is the most beautiful #TBT I’ve heard yet. So much so, I ran it back about 4 times off rip. Hip-Hop artists are, indeed, outraged with the recent state of the union; artists have been speaking up and out, and it makes me feel great that as a whole we are becoming evermore conscious of the fxckery that plagues us. Satirically set to the tune of the Sound of Music’s “My Favorite Things,” Lauryn Hill’s “Black Rage” doesn’t seem to come from a place of gratitude. Rather it covers the many atrocities that fuel Black rage. These are the truths we need to hear… and to think, at one time, they booed Ms Lauryn Hill. Thank you for this piece.

After several edits, I think I am on play number 9. Please, sing along. Lyrics down bottom.
