Hello All. Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked! – MLH
There was talk recently about some tax woes Lauryn had got into, and it appears she’s being forced to alleviate them by providing her label with new music. Don’t let the circumstance fool you though: this is a sharp release that’s as good a track as I’ve heard in recent months. Lauryn’s flow is imperious throughout, with her rapid delivery tearing a path through the track, and though she’s accompanied by a very lively electronic-influenced production that would dominate another artist, she overpowers it with ease. The lyricism is as barbed as you’d hope for, as she takes aim at social issues, corporate dictatorship, religious decline and so on; there’s incredible intensity and depth in the lyricism that warrants several replays to catch it all, and undoubtedly it’s one many will find relatability with. Stream, or grab it on iTunes (US) here.
