Nas brought Lauryn Hill out on stage last night at Summer Jam 2012. Ms. Hill blessed the crowd with a few selections one of which included “If I Ruled The World“… Lauryn was in rare form, she looked healthy and her voice even sounds like its back to normal at this point. Many people are saying that Nas & Ms. Hill saved the concert due to controversy caused by Hot 97‘s DJ/Personality Rosenberg  and the comments that he made about Young Money‘s Nicki Minaj which led to Lil Wayne pulling the artist from the shows lineup while the concert was in progress….

No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don’t have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else ‘we’ (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!!
