Muze PNote Lauryn Hill is far from miseducated, as her solo debut album proves. With both critical and popular acclaim from her affiliation with the Fugees, Lauryn uses THE MISEDUCATION OF LAURYN HILL to make a definitive individual statement. The focus here is love: love of self, love of her son, the love of her life, love of hip-hop. Her powerful lyrics and vocal talent put her in a class by herself.
Muze PNote One of hip-hop's more strong-willed artists, Lauryn's positivity defies the '90s materialistic rap scene. Although there is much more singing than rapping, Lauryn still covers plenty of hip-hop ground on THE MISEDUCATION, and her music falls into the rap category just as much as it does into R&B. Produced by Hill herself, this album gives us only a few guest artists (D'Angelo, Mary J.) but lots of Lauryn Hill.

Artist Overview

Exploding into super-stardom, actress/singer/philanthropist Lauryn Hill has become an icon of social consciousness. Influenced by Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and the whole of '60s and '70s protest music, Hill first garnered public attention as the frontwoman of the Fugees. Their platinum-selling THE SCORE was followed by Hill's five-Grammy-winning solo debut. Hill has since rejected the spotlight to raise her child, fathered by Bob Marley's son Rohan.
