7 Ways Lauren Hill Can Help Us Forget a Decade of Crazy

I cant front. The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill is a still on replay in my itunes. Her music from over 10 years ago still sends chills down my spine. Her music moves the soul. And then she isolated herself, and crazy crept in.

With sightings of her becoming more frequent, people have began to question whether Lauryn still has it. Vibe did a recent article on how she can help us forget her decade of self imposed exile and lunacy:

Can Lauryn Hill once again reach the commercial heights of Miseducation? Maybe not. But she can still show the world why she matters. “She still has it,” says Chace, who witnessed her energetic set at the Harmony Festival. “The sense I got was that she was in control of everything from the band to her soundman. In terms of her abilities and having that strong voice where she can just sing out and then just spit effortlessly, that was all there.”

Reid takes praise of Hill a step further. “She could out freestyle most MC’s but she still had this ability to touch your soul the same way Mary J.

Drake is an amazing artist; I love what he does as a rapper and as a singer. But Lauryn didn’t just hit a homerun with her singing and rhyming…she hit a grand slam. She stole our hearts. This is why people are still waiting patiently for her to drop another album even after a decade.”

B. Scott, however, takes a more measured view of the speculation surrounding Hill’s return. “To be honest, we get caught up in Lauryn making some huge, grand comeback. I just want to hear some music. But if she never releases another album again, she will still go down as one of the greatest artist of her era. Not many prople could say that.”

You ask me: A beast is a beast. If her first solo album was that powerful and moving to win as many grammys sold as many records, then her followup will do the same. Most artists have fans. Ms. Hill has a following

  1. Great article Stevie O. I listened to her last week Saturday as I made chicken soup. In the end, the Miseducation was much more soul stirring than the soup bubbling on the pot. Whether she comes with another album, comes back to the conventional world or remains as horrifyingly unreachable as she has become…..her album will forever be one of my top 10 albums…….and guys, let’s not be afraid of greatness 🙂 Cheers xoxo.
