New Lauryn Hill? “Repercussions”

This is definitely not recent. It’s pretty apparent by the way she’s singing. She is cursing though, which is something she stopped doing circa ’98 when she had Zion. Yes, I’m ridiculous. Anyway, here’s the song.

Anyone familiar with Nicole and Natalie know that their summer barbecues are epic. Here the girls film some down time at their first BBQ of the summer. Check out your favorite Snarkster at 2:30 watching the girls play Double Dutch.

The girls bring Episode 2 of their weblog series, this time they discuss weak interviews and share some deejay scratch exchanges with DJ Yonny. Funniest thing on this episode is them telling a story of an interviewer asking them how they met. Uh DUH. Enjoy!
