So I finally just bought Lauryn's first solo album at the record store not realizing that is was on sale for a reason. According to various blogs sites, Lauryn Hill has recorded new material and it expected to release later this year. However, I'm finding it hard to believe she'll be releasing new music this year due to the fact that the year is half over. Lauryn Hill blew up the music industry the last time she was on the scene in 98', so isn't more time needed to put the buzz out there? And why did Lauryn and comp. wait until now to anounce her long awaited comeback?
Any way the emotional ubran stylings of 'The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill' still most definately stand as the Holy Grail of Hip hop. It is going to be interesting to see what Lauryn comes up with on this album which was recorded during a ten year process. Hopefully she will be able to save music from the state it's in right now.
'Hip Hop started out in the heart, now everybody tryna chart!'
