She has returned. Has she returned?

Lauryn Hill

 

It has been reported that I signed a new record deal, and that I did this to pay taxes. Yes, I have recently entered into an agreement with Sony Worldwide Entertainment, to launch a new label, on which my new music will be released. And yes, I am working on new music.

 

I’ve remained silent, after an extensive healing process. This has been a 10+ year battle, for a long time played out behind closed doors, but now in front of the public eye. This is an old conflict between art and commerce… free minds, and minds that are perhaps overly tethered to structure. This is about inequity, and the resulting disenfranchisement caused by it. I’ve been fighting for existential and economic freedom, which means the freedom to create and live without someone threatening, controlling, and/or manipulating the art and the artist, by tying the purse strings.

 

It took years for me to get out of the ‘parasitic’ dynamic of my youth, and into a deal that better reflects my true contribution as an artist, and (purportedly) gives me the control necessary to create a paradigm suitable for my needs. I have been working towards this for a long time, not just because of my current legal situation, but because I am an artist, I love to create, and I need the proper platform to do so.

 

The nature of my new business venture, as well as the dollar amount reported, was inaccurate, only a portion of the overall deal. Keep in mind, my past recordings have sold over 50,000,000 units worldwide, earning the label a tremendous amount of money (a fraction of which actually came to me).

 

Only a completely complicated set of traps, manipulations, and inequitable business arrangements could put someone who has accomplished the things that I have, financially in need of anything. I am one artist who finds value in openly discussing the dynamics within this industry that force artists to compromise or distort themselves and what they do, rather than allowing them to make the music that people need. There are volumes that could (and will) be said.

The comeback of Lauryn Hill? Perhaps, perhaps not, either way I wish the best for her.

Rap flow is still there.

I Dont think she can ever drop a MEOLH and if shw managed to do so. This generation is too musically handicaped to appreciate such .content.

This track is a weak comeback though

"I aint hear a word you said, HIBIDY HOOBLA"

 

Is Lauren Hill trying to fit 10 years of rapping into 3 verses? Good luck seeing them AZ Lyrics sites trying to decipher this fuckeries.

 

Imagine her performing it and people trying to rap along with it

She went in with the bars(had to read them cause it's a struggle trying to listen to that again) but the flow and the beat was dead

 

Good to see her back on the music ting but she needs to do better and return to this form...
