Whatever happened to Lauryn Hill?

Did she ever release a follow up to Miseducation? Are the Fugees back together?

Fugees got back together for a "block party" that Dave Chapelle threw.

No "real" follow up to Miseducation. Just an MTV Unplugged disc.

I was watching MTV2 [which is MTV with the number 2 after it] and the VJ asked a rapper what was in his ride and he mentioned something about a underground Fugees release. So...

It's not like Roberta Flack doesn't have anymore hits that she can't sample off of.
Like she did the song "killing me softly".
A real talent Lauren Hill.

Hill is ten times the writer Flack will ever be. Talented indeed.

This knock is especially funny since Roberta Flack didn't even write that song....

she told all the white bitches to stop buying her music, therefore drying up any fans she actually had.

Yep, I think her words were something like "I'd rather kill my baby than have another white bitch buy my album."

Genius.

It's even funnier considering it wasn't a sample, it was a remake. Jeez, those Beatles sure were hacks, they didn't even write "Money," "Honey Don't" or "Rock and Roll Music."

I wish I could remember where I had read the article--rollingstone.com, maybe?--but it was a legitmate music publication, but if I can remember, she was living in Miami in an almost Salinger-esque seculusion working on her next album. But the reporter made it seem like she had flipped a little, cutting off connections with everyone from family, friends, record execs, just her and her baby, husband/boyfriend, paranoid of everyone trying to find her. Recording sessions were assigned, then shifted, then scrapped, or when everyone was gathered, she was erratic in her concentration, composure and the sessions would end, or she would dismiss all the musicians, hire new ones, start over again...it was a continuous cycle.

Now, I do remember, either it was Hill herself or someone associated with her, refuting the various musicians that were quoted, or people that were interviewed...This was a year, year and half ago I read that article. Either way, it was strange, but not entirenly unbelievable either, as she seems after her first album to be seeking a more private life.

If you listen to the Unplugged disc, you'll see she was close to the edge of insanity back then. She's probably gone over by now. It's too bad, Miseducation is fantastic.

What's even funnier is that Flack's version was also a cover!

Sir,

Please refrain from using "Blender" to prove a point in the future.

Thank you for your time.

People actually believed this story?
I guess it's the same ones who also believed Mikey died from Pop Rocks and Tommy Hilfiger appeared on Oprah.

Wait, didn't you hear that Shakira said she'd rather have pigs listen to her music than Jews?!

That's right Hill didn't sample it , she sang it just like Roberta Flack.
Now NO DOUBT did a remake of IT"S MY LIFE, but made it their own with that wonderful remake. That's a sign of true talent.
And over the years the song THE LOCO MOTION has been remade and became hits of each of the artists who remade them.
But each artist made it sound different, unlike Hill who sings KILLING ME SOFTLY the same way Roberta Flack did. And of course the teen listens to that great song and buys it and thinks HIll is a true artist.

To be honest, I heard it in passing I guess when it happened. I don't keep up with her so I didn't know otherwise until now. I could care less.
