This Lauryn Hill x Nina Simone Mash-Up Album Will Blow You Away
“I’ll be Nina Simone, defecating on your microphone”
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.
