LAURYN ANSWERS BACK

04/05/1999 at 12:00 AM EDT

Hip-hop star Lauryn Hill finally replied to radio deejay Doug "Greaseman" Tracht during a Washington DC-area concert on Tuesday night, reports The Washington Post. Tracht lost his job at WARW-FM for playing a Hill song and then making a foul racist comment about dragging people behind trucks. (He subsequently apologized, but has yet to find another job.) Before singing the same song, "Doo Wop (That Thing)," before a sold-out house, Hill thanked Washington for not letting a "certain deejay" get away with his comment. Then she chanted, "Respect, respect, respect, respect." According to The Post, "the crowd erupted in cheers."
