Fulfilling the promise of 1996’s “If I Ruled The World,” hip-hop icons Nas and Lauryn Hill will join forces on tour this fall for the upcoming “Life Is Good/Black Rage” tour. The curious juxtaposition in the title comes from Nas’ recently released Life Is Good album and Hill’s upcoming single, “Black Rage”–a song about “the derivative effects of racial inequity and abuse,” according to a press release.
