Ms. Hill got skills, that’s a gift, it’s real

My ryhmes is heavy like the mind of Sister Betty.

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released in 1998. This album is so amazing, I remember where I was the first time I heard it. From the first listen, it was like Lauryn had been around forever. She could do it all – killer flow, great vocals and lyrics that stated huge truths in simple ways.  Lauryn was unapologetically woman and a strong and well-spoken one at that. It is such an intensely personal album that speaks to the struggles we all face. I listen to this album on a regular basis. It  is inspiring and uplifting, and it never fails to make me sing along or wop it out.

So after the jump, a Lauryn Hill sampler, for fans old and new. Enjoy!
