Nas brings out Lauryn Hill at Hot 97 Summer Jam 2012 [Video]

It being Jubilee weekend, the Queen has made a number of historic appearances, dazzling London, greeting crowds on a flotilla and heading a barge. Few would have expected the royal to take to a stage performing renditions of “Lost Ones” and The Fugees‘ “Ready or Not”, but that’s exactly what she did; she being the stately empress of Hip Hop – Lauryn Hill.

Following Nicki Minaj‘s shock decision to cancel her Summer Jam set, being distinctly unimpressed by Peter Rosenberg‘s scathing words criticising her work, New York statesman and QB king, Nasty Nas, decided to take matters into his own hands, secretly inviting long-time friend and creative kin, Lauryn Hill, to perform alongside him as a special guest.

Sharing the stage with the Queensbridge veteran, L-Boogie rolled back the years, reciting verses and singing to the delight of elated fans, while many star-shocked luminaries looked on, amazed by the set. The Inc’s Irv Gotti appeared just as impressed as anyone else.
