"We're still cooking it," Lauryn Hill told the impatient crowd.

Meanwhile, Wyclef addressed the Haitian immigration crisis at the Texas-Mexico border and he challenged U.S. Pres. Joe Biden to fix the problem during the set.

Among the songs the group performed were "The Score", "Fu-Gee-La", and their signature cover of "Killing Me Softly."

Wyclef closed the show with Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry", with Lauryn - the ex-partner of Marley's son Rohan Marley - backing him on harmony.

But the track social media can't stop talking about is "Nobody" featuring Lauryn Hill.

Lauryn's verses are trending online for her critical take on the rise in social media and its influence on narcissistic tendencies.

    "Now let me give it to you balanced and with clarity
    I don't need to turn myself into a parody
    I don't do the sh*t you do for popularity
    They clearly didn't understand when I said I get out apparently
    My awareness like Keanu in The Matrix."

Lauryn, 46, also address longstanding complaints about her lateness at concerts.

    "I'm savin' souls and ya'll complainin' bout my lateness
    Now it's illegal for someone to walk in greatness
    They want the same but they don't take risks
    Now the world will get to see it's own reflection
    And the anointed can pursue their own direction."

Lauryn Hill's daughter Selah Marley says her mother's form of discipline was slave like.

Selah, daughter of Lauryn, 45, and musician Rohan Marley, 48, claims her mother's form of discipline involved a belt and lots of threats.

In a 2-hour video on Instagram, Selah, 20, described the beatings she suffered as a minor child.

"And then the threats, the constant threats. That belt man. That's that slave sh*t. That was some slavery sh*t. All Black parents were on that sh*t."

Selah, pictured with Lauryn and her grandmother, Valerie Hill, praised her "amazing" mom, but she described the legendary singer as a single mother who wasn't always nurturing and often lashed out in anger at her children.

"My mom is an amazing woman, but she obviously didn't do everything right. She was just very angry. So, so, so, so, so, so angry. She was literally not easy to talk to and then half the time we didn't live with her. I lived with my grandparents half the time… It's crazy, I’m playing this trauma back in my head as I speak to you."

She said the threats Lauryn used were meant to instill fear in her. ("You want me to embarrass you? You want me to give you something to cry about?")

Selah added: "I'm not mad at a little discipline, but what can a five-year-old do? What can a seven-year-old do?"

The fashion model and social media influencer also opened up about her "daddy issues" due to her absentee father, Rohan Marley, son of the late reggae legend, Bob Marley.

"Honestly guys, I'm just hurting. I can't even front that I'm not. I've been hurting for so much of my life and so much of my life has been me avoiding how much I'm really hurting just from the circumstances."

Selah revealed she has a split personality, in addition to her daddy issues, which affects her relationships with men.

"I have a form of split personality to some degree, I mean not to like you know diagnose myself, but just a form of split because it's like, a part of me stopped growing at the age that my dad left. Whenever that stopped, I feel like something just stopped or maybe it never grew, it never developed... especially when it comes to men, like males in my life. They bring out this dark, dark, dark thing inside of me because I feel like I need them... like I hurt them because I'm mad at them, because I'm mad at my father for not being around but I need them because I don’t have a father so I need someone..."
