It is not often that we get to hear from Ms. Lauryn Hill, as she has become very private and uninterested in media attention and public recognition throughout recent years. So when I came across a statement that she made at one of her recent concerts in Dallas on her Life is Good/Black Rage tour with Nas, I found it to be very profound. Hear her out…
“Be careful how you judge. A lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. A whole lot and notice after all the people that just talk, talk, talk, who’s the silent one? And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t really chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme. So when they, under pressure, attack me…. I love them still.
You know I know I’m not crazy, which is why I can use the word so freely…. Crazy like a fox. Ahead, ahead of the curve. People don’t like people necessarily who are ahead of the curve, but unfortunately that’s not my problem.”
