Ready or Not – L Boogie is back! Lauryn Hill is being celebrated in the streets of Twitter after she bodied her feature on Nas’ “Nobody.”
The record is one of 15 bangers featured on his new album, King’s Disease II.
We know Lauryn has the voice of an angel, but it’s been a minute since we’ve heard her dropping bars like a weightlifter in the gym.
On the “Nobody,” Lauryn Hill raps:
All my time has been focused on my freedom now Why would I join 'em when I know that I can beat 'em now? They put their words on me, and they can eat 'em now That's probably why they keep on tellin' me I'm needed now They tried to box me out while takin' what they want from me I spent too many years living too uncomfortably Making room for people who didn't like the labor Or wanted the spoils, greedy, selfish behavior Now let me give it to you balanced and with clarity I don't need to turn myself into a parody I don't- I don't do the shit you do for popularity They clearly didn't understand when I said I get out apparently My awareness like Keanu in The Matrix I'm savin' souls and y'all complainin' 'bout my lateness Now it's illegal for someone to walk in greatness They want the same shh, but they don't take risks Now the world will get to see it's own reflection And the anointed can pursue their own direction And if you're wrong and you're too proud to hear correction Walk into the hole you dug yourself, f**k a projection See me in my freedom taking all my land back They sent a lot against me thinking I'd just stand back I got my legs beneath me, I got my hands back A lot of people sabotaged, they couldn't stand that I turned the other cheek, I took blow after blow There's so much crisis in the world 'cause you reap what you sow When you keep what you know is meant for someone else The ditch you dig for them, you must just end up in yourself I'm in the secret place, I keep a sacred space They keep showin' their hands, but keep hidin' their face If I'm a messenger, you block me then you block the message So aggressive, the world you made is what you're left with Pride and ego over love and truth is f**king reckless Y'all ni**as got a death wish, the stupid leaves me breathless
