Ms. Lauryn Hill has created a rough edit of a song titled “Black Rage” in response to the events in Ferguson, Missiouri. By taking the fairytale like melody and lyrics of Julie Andrew’s The Sound of Music from the Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic “My Favorite Things,” Lauryn Hill maintains her own version turning Black Rage into a mix of recognizing everything that has felt surreal within the news over the past few weeks and strategizing an understanding to cope with a sense of realism.

An old sketch of Black Rage, done in my living room. Strange, the course of things. Peace for MO. – MLH

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
