“I’ll be Nina Simone, defecating on your microphone”

This past August was the 20-year-anniversary of Lauryn Hill‘s masterpiece: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Producer Amerigo Gazaway couldn’t let the year slip by without honoring the album.

On December 3rd, Gazaway dropped The Miseducation of Eunice Waymon, a mashup project displaying what it would have been like if Hill collaborated with one of her idols: Nina Simone

It’s a project Gaway has been teasing for months. Back in August, he dropped a teaser trailer for The Miseducation of Eunice Waymon. (Eunuce was Simone’s birth name.)

The mashup is currently available on Bandcamp. Writing about how the project came about, Gazaway wrote:

Back in 2016, I had the pleasure of discussing my conceptual collaboration projects via a roundtable discussion at MoPOP’s annual POP Conference in Seattle. During our discussion, a fellow panelist, writer and professor, Zandria Robinson, posed an interesting question: “where’s your project celebrating women artists?”

Two years later and I’m excited to finally share the answer with my new Nina Simone + Lauryn Hill mixtape, The Miseducation of Eunice Waymon.
