Biography

Lauryn Hill, a native of South Orange, New Jersey, first came to attention with the multi-talented The Fugees. Their first album, Blunted On Reality, went virtually unnoticed by the public; their real breakthrough came with the sophomore album, The Score, which featured Killing Me Softly. That album stills remains the worldwide top-selling rap album of all time (17 million units shipped). She earned two Grammys (Best Rap Album and Best R&B Performance by a duo or group) in 1996 and gave birth to Zion (alleged father is Bob Marleys son) before releasing her self-written and self-produced solo album, The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, which topped Billboard charts the moment it came out.
