Posted, as inconveniently as possible, on Twitter via Zshare, ?uestlove debuted a new (or at least unreleased) Lauryn Hill song yesterday, "World Is A Hustle," a meandering, eight-minute treatise that improbably pays off. The lyrics are seeped in paranoia and dejection, and Hill sounds defeated for the first half of the song, until she half-musters the strength to reach for a couple of powerful notes. She doesn't quite get there, of course, but she at least (kinda, sorta) makes the effort. Baby steps. Baby steps.

Poll

Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
