Lauryn_ Reebok Classics Promo

There is really nothing you can say about Lauryn Hill that hasn’t already been said. For many of us she defined both conscious and popular music. She was hip hop and soul and pop at the same time, not an easy thing to accomplish. She was (is) and positive example of proud black womanhood in a time of great misogyny and exploitation. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was an unexpected and refreshing rain over a messy society. Her music is always honest to the point of painful realization. There has been so much talk about her since she stopped making music and since her Unplugged album but she still remains one of the most powerful examples of truth in contemporary music and the destructive nature of music as an industry. There is no question that she struggled, but ‘crazy’ is not a word to describe this woman, ‘focused’ might be a better word. I believe that her leaving music was about her priorities and her family, Anita Baker did the same at the height of her career in the 80′s. Either way, this little video shows a little of her own thoughts on Miseducation and what she was trying to do.
