Watch Lauryn Hill Remix Drake’s “Nice for What”
After Drake sampled “Ex-Factor,” Hill returns the favor in concert
Last night, Lauryn Hill was in the middle of performing “Ex-Factor” at New York’s Apollo Theater when she cut the music, fired up the beat to Drake’s “Nice for What”—which samples the song’s hook—and performed her own verses over the top. Hill’s re-remix includes lyrics about a “Balenciaga mama” and the hook, “See this is ‘Ex-Factor’/He took the sample/My shit is classic/Here’s an example.” Watch it go down below. (Thanks to reader Ethan C. for the tip.)
Ms. Lauryn Hill is about to head out on a 20th anniversary tour of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the album on which “Ex-Factor” appears. Read Pitchfork’s Sunday Review of the classic record, and check out “6 Rap Songs That Sample Lauryn Hill Masterfully” on the Pitch.
