Lauryn Hill shared a sketch to a song titled “Black Rage” she wrote some time ago. The first time she performed it was in 2012 and decided to dedicate it to the protests and chaos in Ferguson, MO. The rhythm of the song is to the “Sound of Music’s” “Favorite Things.” Lauryn did comment about the situation saying, “Strange, the course of things. Peace for MO.” Check out the lyrics below while you listen:
