Lauryn Hill JailThe unrest in Ferguson, Mo., has caused a few musicians to channel their frustrations into new music.  Lauryn Hill is the latest star to vent about the shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown.

Hill previewed the song  “Black Rage,” during the “Life Is Good/Black Rage” tour with co-headliner Nas in 2012. The “Ex-Factor” singer took the holiday classic “My Favorite Things” and flipped it into a statement about race, hatred and misery.

 

Her words reflect the notion of history repeating: “An old sketch of Black Rage, done in my living room. Strange, the course of things. Peace for MO.”

Take a listen to the song and check out the lyrics below.
