Fifteen years ago today, Lauryn Hill released 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,' a landmark hip-hop album that hasn't lost its musical luster. 'Miseducation' arrived on August 25, 1998, at a time when Hill was entering the next phase in her life beyond music -- motherhood.
Lauryn Hill made her presence known as part of the the '90s hip-hop group, the Fugees. While the singer-rapper became well-known for her part on songs like 'Ready or Not' and 'Fu-Gee-La,' off 1996's 'The Score,' we found out just how amazing of a singer she was when she covered Roberta Flack's 'Killing Me Softly With His Song...
Lauryn Hill makes a fierce return today (June 27), but this time she writes a 1,600-word open letter about racism and the justice system, which, she felt, treated her inhumanely during her tax evasion case.
Although Lauryn Hill has been going through tons of legal trouble over the past few months, it seems that her fans (including a few famous friends) have been showing their support in various ways. And today, Hill has become the latest inductee in TheDrop.fm's Rap Battle Hall of Fame.
Lauryn Hill has held on to her Rap Battle crown with 'Neurotic Society," and last week was no different. Walking away with 55.12 percent of the vote, she was able to beat Wale and his song, 'LoveHate Thing,' which only received 44.88 percent.
Support for Lauryn Hill and her new song, 'Neurotic Society,' is still going strong. Taking 87.1 percent of the vote, she beat A$AP Ferg's 'Work (Remix),' which unfortunately walked away with 12.9 percent in last week's Rap Battle.
