NEW MUSIC: Lauryn Hill - "Consumerism"

Miss Miseducation herself let this out on the eve of her release from a six-month prison sentence for tax evasion. Although her approach is a bit outlandish, any content from Lauryn Hill will have it's own unique substance. Check out the new joint below, along with an attached message from her Tumblr page:

“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level.”
