Lauryn Hill is only featured on Drake‘s “Nice for What” thanks to the “Ex-Factor” sample, but after a recent rendition by Ms. Hill during a New York concert, Drizzy may want to get her on an actual remix.
While performing at the Apollo Theater on Tuesday night (May 1), Hill put her own spin on the Toronto rapper’s latest banger while performing the classic track that is sampled in the song. “See this is ‘Ex-Factor’/He took the sample/My shit is classic/Here’s an example,” she rapped. After flipping the hook, Hill kept it going with a full verse full of her rapid-fire bars.
Drizzy’s “Nice for What” was originally teased in March by Hill’s son, Joshua Omaru Marley, who at the time said he was the only person with the song. Drake eventually dropped the Murda Beatz-produced song a few weeks later on April 6, along with a star-studded video.
Up next for Hill, the rapper will be celebrating her classic album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill with a 20th anniversary tour. The trek will kick off on July 5 in Virginia Beach, Va. before the New Jersey artist makes stops in Miami, Atlanta, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, San Diego, Phoenix, New Orleans and more. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary Tour wraps up on Oct. 5 in St. Louis, Mo.
