Summary: Rest In Power El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz

About Artist: The Fugees need no introduction. Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel made two albums in the mid 90s. The second, The Score (1996), is an all time classic. The Beast is the fifth track on that album.

About Song: In a time of #blacklivesmatter and exactly 50 years after the murder of Malcolm X, this song is as powerful today as it was when it was released 19 years ago (lyrics).

Favorite Part: Lauryn Hill’s verse at 1:45 has got to be my favorite part….
“The subconscious psychology that you use against me
If I lose control will send me to the penetentiary
Such as Alcatraz, or shot up like al Hajj Malik Shabazz”
