‘Nice For What’ samples Hill’s ‘Ex-Factor.’
This year alone, Ms. Lauryn Hill has had the pleasure hearing one her enduring classics, “Ex-Factor,” ripple through airwaves, thanks to “Ex-Factor”-sampling cuts “Be Careful” from Cardi B and Drake's “Nice For What.” Now, Hill has decided to return the favor by debuting her own remix Drake's latest cut.
Hill was performing at New York City's famed Apollo Theater on Tuesday night (May 1) when she paused in the middle her original song “Ex-Factor” to treat the audience to a “Nice For What” remix.
“See this is ‘Ex-Factor’/ He took the sample/ My shit is classic/ Here’s an example,” she sang before unleashing slick bars.
Lauryn Hill will head on tour this July to celebrate the 20th anniversary her debut album The Miseducation Lauryn Hill and is also set to headline the upcoming Pitchfork Music Festival.
