Eminem does crazy word delivery and he's considered a "rap genius"? Lauryn Hill does the same crazy over the top lyrical word play with MEANING behind it and it's not up to par with some of you? SMHLol!
grown woman on the mic, kinda getting her afropunk on. 90's babies may need to help themselves out with a tumblr search.
only she could rhyme all the "-isms" and have it not sound lazy.
typical lauryn hill........dopeness
Dope shit ......thank you Miss Hill
Alright always thought she was the best female rapper of all time, Jeru said shes the strongest man lol. Anyways I wonder if she can pull all this live.???
damn she went innnnn 5/5
Lauryn is a genius ahead of her time. Sheep follow so slaves to product even Kanye acknowledge this but innovators are always gonna be hated on and persecuted by the the majority until she dies then people will get It. Keep reppin the real ms hill
Dope shit dope shit. Real rap, clowns fallback. Peace to Lauryn. Bring the message back in hip-hop!
Consumerism is not for the simple minded fools that can't mentally digest what's around them. They only see material - too stupid to know that all material is immaterial. So, when a true MC steps to the MIC, they blow pass the illiterate minds. This is DOPE track with monster jewel delivery! It's a shame though that very few in hip hop knows what's really going on, the average goon just knows of the word illuminati but is totally clueless on the subject. The truth is the illuminati is straight miss-confusion, it has many names - this is the name that the sheeple play upon, because they know nothing else, Lauren speaks on these channels, but she doesn't mention the brain washed name!
This is whack as fuck real rap ??? clean your ears buddy THIS TRACK IS GAYISM
The speed has to do with the point of the song. In society, consumerism and the rest of these "isms" are in your face and shoved down your throat - similar to the style of her rapping in this song. It adds a punch to the message.
this is actually alright. its different.
What Kanye couldn't do with a whole album, she did it with one song.
acid - heart
Liking this one. Only the slow asses wouldn't understand this one. Go listen to your wack YMCMB and keep getting emasculated.

Consumerism is the word dont get it twisted people pay attention its diferent it isnt no chief keef shit
THIS SONG IS NOT FOR ANY YMCMB FANS
Lmfao you faggots want her to slow down? How bout u learn how to listen faster cus i understood every syllable fine..yall just dont have hiphop ears so stick to ur bullshit pop sounding like drake "wordy fast hiphop its just not in right now" lmaaaaao. Ill take this over 99% of the shit thats dropped this year.
THIS IS AS GAY AS YOU ARE
there's some fake hip hoppers here, saying slow it down....really???? I would suggest, don't listen to Em's rap god then...b/c u can't keep and definately don't have the ear for dope lyricism, which means ur new to this genre and a follower. slow down.....LMAO!!!!!! GO listen to rick ross and his nursery rimes...lol..u newbies make this game wack!
ignorant minds that support mmg, ymcmb, and other fad rappers will not get this...they'll get lost, and stop listening, 30 seconds in and call it wack, and then say something stupid, like...pay ur taxes. smh...bring back the real b-boys and b-girls...these inflitrators don't know anything.
Pay yo taxes and slow the fuck down
slow it the f down and maybe we can appreciate this cut more... damn...
slow down for what listsen betta fuk boi ha ha
u watch channel zero, so u dis the queen. I bet ur a miley fan....sucka
Smh what a powerful message to bad she's going to fast for the slow minded to hear it. Slow down do your music and tell the truth.
Only this isn't supposed to be slam poetry.
true enough. too deep for shallow minded niggas
this is just simply terrible. yall are eatin it up cuz she's talkin fast and saying things like consumerism and egotism to make you social conscious wannabes get excited. listen to what shes sayin there is absolutely no substance to this at all. just a bunch of buzz words thrown together. 0/5 and pay your taxes.
shallow mind..u get a negative out of five, for being a pawn in the game.
My fav. part was "egotism egotism egotism egotism" lol 5/5 stars
Now we're talking.
I'm sure she's saying some ill shit, but damn this is a hard listen. What's the rush? All you got is time...
Lmao. Holyshit. 7/5. Love the effort Lauryn!
You're gonna get very bored if you listen to this like a normal song. This has straight flow and lyrics, that's what it's about, LYRICSM. Change the way you think about this track and it's amazing
Holy...fuck...wow. Crazy lyrics.
OMG! Lauren Hill made a song! Better give it a 5 even though it's not a good song!!!! Let's get real people this song is in no way a 5. Ridiculous.
She put that work in..
You mf who comment on this site are some dumb programmed bithch fags that dont know nothin about hiphop or music show some respect to the lady she is the only female emcee saying something worth listening to. She is thinking out side of the box and being more creative than the fag boi rappers u listen to this song was for intelligent minds get off the site fags.
if you really think shes the only female emcee saying something then you aint listening very well
not my kind of hip hop. I like lyrical shit, but at least make your flow easy to listen to.
What the fuck is this garbage? What made Lauren Hill good was the fact that she could make music that sounded good, yet still had a positive message in them. I don't even want to listen to this shit.
She had a lot to say, but why'd she have to say it all in one song?
Don't write a book, write a catchy hook, paint me picture in my mind, take me on the journey, help me see what you see, how you came to see it, and why you wanted me to join you.
C'mon Lauren, I expected better.
This is not for simple minds. 12 grade intellect only. Damn L prison made you a beast!!!
This is the most lyrical, real, innovative and out-of-this-world form of hip hop I've ever heard. Ms Hill you're definitely one of the greatest.
What is she sayin? I like it though.
No that's what I call real hip hop lyricism
she went ultra saiyan yall bugging
Good someone saying something
She's not saying anything.
There are no such things.
You must be some form of a devil go back to hell.
until I looked at the bank draft that said $4691, I didn't believe that my neighbour was like really erning money parttime on their laptop.. there uncles cousin has been doing this for less than twenty two months and just now repaid the loans on there condo and bourt Lancia Straton. more information http://www.youtube.com.watch.qr.net/k7I2
Sheeple pay attention to the message in this track and you might learn something
forward. not for comfortable sheep.
finally she sharing again.
this is far over people's head. this is genius. this is what pushing the envelope sounds like kanye...this is what he was trying to do
no one wants to hear rich celebrities preach about shit like consumerism
I agree with the Kanye comment.
extreme talent. amazing
This is a hate it or love it kind of song, and I happen to love it. Lauryn Hill is definitely top 5 dead or alive. Amazing and weird at the same time. I'm impressed.
....just one big ass WHY. The whole "you need to just listen to it again to understand it" ordeal IS FUCKING STUPID.
>not being able to understand music
>to lazy to listen again
garbage flow. lauryn needs to comeback with somthing better
Painful to listen to. Rubbish.
Sounds like she is smoking too much weed. Just because it is unconventional doesnt mean it is cool. I still give it 3 stars tho
all happy people don't listen to this. this is some good art, coming from a tarnished woman, but still beautiful. yal go listen to will smith or something
This shit is terrible.
lol pure garbage lol sound like shit smells like shit then it must be shit.
DMX and Rakim, Shontelle and Aleks D single, "Don't Call Me," is hot shittttttttttt.............man
You did it once then you did it again....make this the last time
Ok so she basically takes a beat and uses big fucking words and says them...."if I ruled the world" what happen to that?
FUCK USE YOUR VOICE TO SING!!!! SICK OF YOU TRYNA RAP!!!!! WE HAVE OTHERS FEMALE RAPPERS WHO NEED THE SPOT SIT THE FUCK DOWN WITH THAT RAPPING SHIT!!!!
Calm down Nikki. Do you need some money? I have lots.
Where exactly is the flow? Why bother with a beat if you're gonna ignore it?
this is fire... thank you miss hill. i really mean that

So disappointed. This is just not good music.
THANK YOU WHY THE FUCK IS SHE RAPPING!!! OR TRYING TO GET THE FUCK OFF THE RAP SCENE SING CHICK FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU....PEOPLE WISH TO HAVE THAT VOICE
I'm so fucked up she said European fetishism and I was like "hmmmm i should jerk off to some German whores" .. im lost in the matrix fap fap fap
lol as much as i love lauryn i dnt think she understands how ignorant we've become
This was awful Lauryn...still love you though...
Go get a dictionary and look up every word you don't know and read the lyrics, don't say you don't get it, you must admit you don't have the mental ability to comprehend this type of high volume emceeing.. This shit like riding a wild bull, not many can hold on for a second so they say they don't like it, or it's too fast, this ain't the Old Lauren I know.. GTFOHWTB.S She got smarter and wiser, she has sagacity and wisdom and if you don't know about it you can't even recognize it when you hear it.. Hat goes off to the Best Emcee Breathing Male or Female..
Shut tha fuck up with your self righteous ass yo. I understood every bar she is saying in this song. I listen to Wu Tang, Tupac, Lupe and Nas. And The Fugees for that matter. I didn't say shit about not being able to understand the song (that was just something you chose to assume). I never said shit about not liking music that makes you think (again another thing you chose to assume) I didn't say it wasn't art off course it is. All I said is audibly I got no enjoyment from listening to the song. I guess in your mind you cant accept that and you will continue to convince yourself anyone who doesn't enjoy the song is intellectually below you. But if you can sit your cliche-poetry cafe pseudo-intellectual, pre assumption makin ass down for 2 minutes, And put your ego to the side you might be able to realize maybe....JUST MAYBE SOME PEOPLE JUST DONT LIKE THE WAY THE SONG ACTUALLY SOUNDS. Her flow just doesnt sound good to me. its over done. like I said. I know artist who can get the same exact message across she did with this song with half the words. I like music that has an message and that actually...sounds good. If you like this song thats good for you...its not my cup of tea, I will stick to her earlier work. 2chainz garbage how dare you type his name when addressin me. Molly? Because I dont like this song that means I would take Molly if a rapper told me to? Do you actually think or does your dumbass just type? how is that even logical....fuck this song and fuck you.
This is just not for the fainted of the heart . People so ignorant not to understand art . Music is a art . This is just a piece of art that is not understood but will later down the line . Music is for enjoyment also to make you think . If you don't want to think go listen to 2 chains with baby riddles . Im no hater I like 2 chains music too . But don't down play something you don't understand not even trying to understand . This song has many meanings and messages some are just not dumb but ignorant to try . Let me say it again try to understand what she is saying . If another artist say pop molly some of yall would go pop a molly and be trippy out your minds . Somebody say a word you don't understand you won't take the time to find out what that word mean . But would take a designer drug and don''t even know the effects FOH
having a dictionary next to you shouldn't be an requirement to enjoy music. Not everyone feels like playin cranium with music some people like to kick back and just enjoy it. Im a fan of all sorts of hiphop and over all good music. And I don't see the enjoyability in listening to this song. it has a good message but the beat is mediocre and her cramed together multi syllable fast paced bar structure doesn't suit it well....at all...Just cus something is super complex and over done doesnt make it better. just cus a rapper fits a whole bunch of big words in their bars and spits fast doesnt make em the "Best Emcee Breathing Male or Female" lol.
Ems Relapse sold 2 million. Recovery Sold 4.5 Million. Why?, Relapse was disappointing. Interscope had a version of Relapse that could of sold easily 4 million. Check out this site to hear it.
Very f****g nice ..
now theres a time where you rap too fast and it dont sound right...this is one of those times.slowed down a bit it would be dope its just too fast.the sound is there though it sounds dope.
niggas aint ready... at: Pangaeaemcee
I don't like the isms and sisms she should rap like she did in 96/97/98/99
According to MTV News, the record was created prior to Hills prison sentence and finished through a series of phone calls made with Hill during her incarceration.
The record was created prior.....and finished through a series of phonecalls.......u are a dumbass. That statement said that the record was finished through a series of phone calls during her incarceration--- and while will she be writing letters from exile before she goes to jail. Where does it say other things not related to the song were finished in jail. I repeat, u are a dumbass. Shyne's album Godfather buried Alive had some songs recorded via phone way back in 2005 but a dumbass without a common sense like you won't know that we are in the technological age..
She should have got more time for making this song
How many people are actually listening and not just saying it because its "lauryn hill" i was brought up on lauryn and i guess i too stuck on her old stuff to even listen to it..i dont like this good message but not a good song. Idk i just cant get into this
I would buy her shit, then again, I am white and she'd rather be... yep
Not feelin it....
The message. The message. The message...
she still ill
dont even care if its that gd still a 5
I love Ms. Hill, but this song is only OK. She's spitting fast on her new shit, but when I saw her at Rock the Bells last year she was doing her old shit in the same style. Like she's in a rush to get all this shit off her chest before her head blows up. You're not Busta or Twista. Slow it down baby because when you do you most of these dudes can't touch you.
She's still on drugs, that's why she's so fucking jittery all the time, i saw her live a couple years ago and she was doing the same shit. She's still mad talented but that's what drugs will do to you.
Ms. Hill straight up killed it.
this shit is ill. if she can hit strong like this without singing on one track just a whole album mcing i will def be coppin the project she absolutely killed this. this is not for kids pumpin the garbage you hear now and days but more for a mature audience.
The female Nas
Finally some Real Hip Hop!!! Welcome home to the Real Queen!!!
Finally so real Hip Hop!!!!
I don't think she's a good rapper.
That because you dont know anything.
Typical Ghetto Rat!!!!!!!!!!!
Typical have sex with your sister if she's not there then have sex with your little brother if he's not there then the pet will do typical tiny little dick mongrel white trash power!!!!!!!!!!!
oh boy here we go
WTF!???? IS THIS?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAN?!!!!!!!!!!! Is She Rhyming every with ISM? AND?! I got nothing from this. -The message was lost in the fast ass delivery.
go read a book you dumbass
WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!,,,,,CAN WE SAY REMIX,,,,,SHE MIGHT WIN SOME,,, BUT SHE JUST LOST ONE
SLOW THEM VOCALS DOWN,,,,WHAT THE FUCK IS THE RUSH,,,,,
this shit is dope 5/5
She actually layed her vocals thru the phone and it was still better than Nicki mInaj's shit.

Your lack in ability to interpret simple statements and apply logic [to the subject at hand] is a common problem among the general public. The article clearly states, "The record was created prior to Hills prison sentence." Anyone with common sense would also naturally possess the ability to apply common logic and comprehend that the latter part of the statement in the article implies discussions about other things not related to the actual recording of the vocals. Then again, anyone with common sense could easily determine that her vocals were not recorded through a telephone just by listening to the song. Your donkiness and/or donkdum have risen to a level much higher than before my first post.
the article that announced she came out of jail said it at the end fool.
No she didn't.-Stop lying. She laid this in the studio, do you notice the compression? There is no compression on jail phones.
How is it that you've, I presume, listened to the song and somehow then came up with the idea that she recorded her vocals through the phone. Do you know what someone's voice sounds like on the phone. Don't be a donk.
I would like to see her work with Kanye's team handling all the production. She is spitting her tits off. Beat sucks
the greatest MC of all time. dispute that.
Greatest female MC? ehhhhhh, I don't know even if she is that
until I looked at the check which was of $4475, I have faith ...that...my mother in law woz like truley bringing in money part time at their laptop.. there neighbor has been doing this for less than 11 months and just cleared the depts on there place and bought a new Land Rover Defender. try this website http://www.youtube.com.google.qr.net/k6th
I remember when she used to harmonize, please go back to that style.
Pure Genius! The only artist with the nerve to stand up to the Babylon Shitstem! Way over the blind masses heads...
The beat is atrocious and the lyrics do not blend well. The lyrics were strong though.
Real rap. Real poetry. Everyone who does not appreciate this as music has been brainwashed by this "new" horrible,gut- wrenching hip hop.
The Queen of Hip Hip is back!!
I understand the message, but you cant polish shit and call it a something else. Its still shit
w,e if this was a dude rappin ( bar shyne ) and they were just out the pen yall would b on his dick diffrently like "damn yall my dog jus out the bing sonn dog system cudnt hold him down the realest in the game" but cos its a women first joint out the pen she get reps but its just the start hopefully she goes back to the fugee days and drops them soulful tearin up your logic shit
The people who don't like this are the ones who do not understand words longer than 4 maximum 5 letters.
sometimes she's off-beat on this track
i'm hearing that too.
I think its
a great reproduction of todays life... Fast, quicker, greedy almost...
thats how I interpreted it as well.
Oh almost forgot
I loved Lauryn Hill's earlier work, but this is horrible. Yeah I know she's sending out a message with this song, but that alone isn't going to make this song fire...This shit is horrible...Some of you are holding on to what she was, instead of just listening to the current music. I think she needs some therapy, somebody to calm her ass down so she can get back to dropping classic shit.
it wasn't a song meant for radio or anything. she probably spit this sjit in jail. hate it or love it but dont call it shit because it was more about the lyrics here.
nobody this passionate about a message like this cares about making a song "fire" bro....it is not about having a good time.
Fuck tax evading rich bitches like Lauryn Hill. FUCK 'EM.
Hiphop is back!!!!!!!!! Pure lyriics and raw technics
this is shaman music...FIRE
It's crazy but dope!
