Last night, Lauryn Hall kicked off her portion of the co-headlining “Life Is Good/Black Rage” tour in Dallas. One of the highlights during the evening’s show came from Ms. Hill, who debuted a new song titled “Black Rage.” The social conscious record focuses on the subject of effects of racial inequity and abuse. Some of the thought-provoking lyrics were also performed in the form of spoken word.

“Black rage is founded on drainin’ and drainin’, Threatenin’ of freedom to stop your complainin’
Pausin’ your water while they say it’s rainin’, Then call you mad for complainin’, complainin’.”

Catch all tour dates here.
