In 1996, Fugees dropped their classic album The Score and in one big swoop Wyclef Jean, Pras, and Lauryn Hill created a unique sound celebrated by millions. Rap verses never sounded so good over elements of soul, reggae and off-the-wall samples.
While all three rhymers had bars to drag any nearby doubter, it was Ms. Lauryn Hill who seemed to be coming for blood.
She was the type of rapper who’d flame you and you wouldn’t even know it until hours later.
I mean, who really knew what “defecating” meant before Lauryn’s verse on “Ready or Not?”
