A special type of comeback is about to happen. "If I Ruled The World" collaborators Lauryn Hill and Nas will reunite for the 'Life Is Good/Black Rage' tour this fall. The name derives from Nas's new album Life Is Good and a new song from Ms. Hill, which is set to arrive this fall. According to the songstress's press release, "Black Rage" is about "the derivative effects of racial inequity and abuse":
"I've been a long standing rebel against the stale, over commoditization. As artists we have opportunity to help the public evolve, raise consciousness and awareness, teach, heal, enlighten and inspire in ways the democratic process may not be able to touch. So we keep it moving."
Nas appears to be happy with the opportunity to regroup with his friend on stage.
“This is history. Better late than never. Life is good!"
