Lauryn Hill Biography

Lauryn Hill is a famous rap singer, musician, record producer and actress. She rose to prominence during the 90s when she had her best work done. She was first and foremost the part of a group the Fugees, and she later on to perform by herself and had a successful solo career. While Lauryn was still in high school she was approached by Pras Michel who convinced her to join their band and alongside Wyclef Jean they made their band and only after renaming it to Fugees they started being successful. In total Lauryn Hill went on to make “Blunted on Reality” in 1994 and later on the Grammy-winning “The Score” (1996) which went on to become their most famous album yet. But things ended in 1997 when the band broke up and it was mostly because of the struggles that Lauryn and Jean were having with their relationship during that time.

After the Fugees broke up, Lauryn decided to embark on a solo career and would produce only one album, titled “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.” But this album became her greatest success to date as it debuted in number 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart. The album was so successful that it did not only sell well but it also bought a total of five awards form the 41st Grammy Ceremony. Some of the awards were Album of the Year and also Best New Artist.

But Lauryn has once again dropped out of the public eye as she felt disheartened by the industry and has often criticized the modern pop culture. Some people say that she could not handle the pressure of fame and has left the industry for a while. She came back with an MTV Unplugged 2.0 album in 2012, but it did not prove to be a success as her prior work. Lauryn Hill now releases a few songs here and there and tours from time to time so you can sometimes see her appearing on certain festivals, but she has lost the thing that made her popular in the first place. Her downfall went even further in 2012 when she pleaded guilty for tax eversion charges and she was eventually incarcerated for three months in 2013
