During the performance, the collective paid tribute to YG Marley’s grandfather Bob Marley with snippets of ‘Is This Love’ and ‘Exodus’.

“Coachella, if you don’t want no more war in the world, put your hands in the air,” said Jean as Marley’s ‘War’ played (per Variety).

Hill’s performance at Coachella comes after she postponed the remaining dates of her tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’, citing a “serious vocal strain for the past month”.

In November 2023, the lengthy caption revealed that she had been performing recent shows while on prescribed medication. “I made it through each show by taking prescribed prednisone,” she wrote. “In order to prevent any long term negative affect on my voice and my body, I need to take time off to allow for real vocal recovery so that I can discontinue the medication completely.”

She’s since returned to performing with a handful of shows across February, March and April of this year.

Meanwhile, Busta Rhymes will be joining Missy Elliott announces on her first ever headline tour alongside Ciara.
