Reebok sat down with the Iconic and former Fugees songstress Lauryn Hill. One of the headliners for this year’s Rock the Bells 2011 Festival, to speak about her classic solo debut “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill”. She reminisces on recording, the processes she went through, the ideas she implemented into this amazing project, this beautiful music she created.
Lauryn Hill” I think I made music from a sincere place and I think that sincerity has no choice but to resonate with people, I thin that my motives were probably in the right place, You know what I mean. In the right time and I think it resonated, spoke or represented a generation of people who needed that at that time or wanted that at that time and I was in the very blessed position to be the carrier of that message”
She explains that the music allowed her to grow, The album’s title was inspired by the film and autobiographical novel The Education of Sonny Carson, and Carter G. Woodson’s The Mis-Education of the Negro and incorporates musical elements of R&B, hip hop, soul, reggae, and gospel. Certified eight times Platinum in the United States. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill brought ten Grammy nominations at the 41st Grammy Awards, winning five, making Hill the first female recording artist to receive that number of awards in one night. The Fugees most distinctive voice, You are a Legend. I like it a lot
