It's not often these days that you wake up to hear new music from Lauryn Hill, but this week is a rare exception. A few days ago, Lauryn Hill announced the release of a new track. The song, Rebel/Find It Hard To Say is an updated version of her 2002 release from her MTV Unplugged 2.0 album. And although the song was originally released 14-years ago, the new version still has much relevance today, if not more. Hill reworks the original version adding new music.
According to OkayAfrica, Rebel/Find It Hard To Say is about Amadou Diallo, a 23-year old Liberian-born college student who was shot and killed by four NYPD officers in the Bronx on February 4, 1999. Read some of the lyrics below:
