As Exclaim reports, Hill showed up over an hour late and rushed through 10 tracks before ending her concert with a cover of Drake‘s “Nice For What,” which samples her song “Ex-Factor.”

Both during and after the concert, attendees took to Twitter to express their displeasure with the set, while others that weren’t in attendance commented on how people are still purchasing Hill tickets and knowing her tendency to be late to her own shows.

“So disappointed in the Lauryn Hill concert tonight. Made fans wait over an hour and then performed for 45 mins max,” one user, Jennifer Azevedo, wrote. “Could barely recognize the songs she attempted to sing. Cash grab for sure. Don’t waste your money on her!”

“Lauryn Hill was a big let down last night,” user Jax B tweeted. “From her unrecognizable songs, constant criticism of her band, shortest performance of the show, and throwing off all of Toronto with that terrible nice for what remix. She still the queen though.”

Hill serves as the Sunday headliner for the Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend in Chicago. The performance is pegged to the 20th anniversary of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
