Lauryn Hill - Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
L-Boogie’s crossover of memorable vocals and feminine wisdom touched on topics of social issues hit with force few were expecting. Even as a standout when dropping verses on Fugees’ albums, having a woman spit hardcore rivaled that of her alpha male counterparts.
Hill illustrated her ideals while searching for a quick buck in “Lost Ones” and wrote a chapter on the game of love from the female and male perspective in “That Thing (Doo Wop).” The neo-soul sound bred for each track was organic while remaining catchy enough to lure even the most untrained ear. Miss Hill's eight-times-platinum certification propelled her to global stardom without a choice.
The ability to alternate from a belting gospel-like voice to uncanny rap lines was never experienced before and it won’t likely be ever again.
