Ms. Lauryn Hill + Nas

Media Title

Is she just eccentric or way ahead of her time? Call Ms. Lauryn Hill both. As the rapper/singer/actress heads to Philadelphia—her first appearance since ripping the Parkway as the best surprise on the Roots’ “Welcome America” stage on Independence Day—it’s hard to predict just which one you’ll get. The multiple Grammy winner parlayed success with the Fugees into international superstardom, then disappeared to raise her six children. Since then, her career track and public appearances have been erratic, but, as proven by her July 4th set, the magic that made 1998’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is still strong. As for Nasir Jones, the rap star was in fine form at his recent Philly show on the Heineken Red Star Access tour, running through throwbacks and new joints with equal verve. From youngest in charge to mature elder statesman, Nas continues to move into hip-hop history with Life Is Good, one of the standout releases in a standout career. Expect a rare live duet from this dynamic duo on their 1996 hit collab “If I Ruled The World.” -Tonya Pendleton
