WATCH:Robert Glasper Goes in on Lauryn Hill, Says She Stole ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ From Other Musicians

In a video, .Paak and Glasper can be seen covering the Detroit rap group's "The Look of Love," with the Oxnard drummer — who recently released his Kendrick Lamar collaboration "Tints" — updating the lyrics to speak on "Instagram thots." He also sings the hook to the group's other well-known song "Fall In Love" while covering "The Look of Love."

Recently, Glasper offered an update on his criticism against Lauryn Hill. During a panel appearance a part of the  Mondo.NYC conference he was asked if he regrets the comments he made about Hill, to which he responded:

"My thing was Lauryn was back in 2008 or 2007 — I've never spoken about her in public. But everything I say is 100% true and it's been going on for 20 years. And all of my friends are affected. A lot of people with kids are affected. So you have to separate yourself from being a fan and think what if it was your dad who wasn't getting paychecks, you know what I mean? So my thing is just on a basic human level, I would never work with anybody that tells me 'You can't look at me.'"

He continued:

"But, you know, I'm a musician that played for her and has a platform to say something that people will listen to. She's been told this by everybody in person — her team and that kind of stuff. But I don't regret it at all because at the end of the day I think it might shake something up and make her feel like she needs to do a little better."
