For everyone who grew up in the 90’s who listened to music, let alone hip hop, the name Lauryn Hill stirred excitement, and the anticipation of greatness in the form of music. Not only did she accumulate millions of fans and record sales worldwide during the 90’s and early 2000’s with the super smash group the Fugees, her first and only solo album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”, it won a number of awards and sold over 8 million albums in the US alone.
Music fans have been waiting patiently for the installment of L Boogie music to bless the airwaves to no avail, until now. In a recent article with The Fader, Jayson Jackson, the producer of the film “What Happened, Miss Simone? “ which Lauryn Hill was featured on six of the tracks for the album connected to the film, expressed that as a result of working on the tribute album, Ms. Hill has been inspired to make music once again.
“I know creating makes her very happy,” he says. “I couldn’t see her doing as much as she did [on the Simone project] in any state other than happiness.”
In support of Jackson’s claim, Phil Nicolo, a producer working with Hill, and co-founder of Ruffhouse Records, also shared that he believes, Lauryn Hill is “closer than ever to finishing the follow-up to Miseducation.”. He also expressed the reason for the long delay for a follow up is a result of Lauryn just wanting to make it perfect.
First we get a follow up to The Chronic 2001 , and then this, wow, 2015 has become a stellar year for a return to stardom to artists we had almost given up on. Let’s just hope this is more than a rumour.
