Lauryn Hill "I am a Child of Former Slaves"..Sentenced to 3 months


Wellll if you don't know by now Triple Threat artist Ms. Lauryn Hill formerly of the mega hit group, "The Fugees", was sentenced to 3 months jail time along with 3 months house arrest, for failing to pay back taxes. It should be noted that Ms. Hill owed $2 Million dollars, however, had recently paid back $900,000 dollars of the outstanding bill. 

During her trial, Hill was ordered by the judge in Newark, New Jersey to undergo counseling because of her conspiracy theories - including that artists are being oppressed by a plot involving the military and media.

She told the court: "I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them. I had an economic system imposed on me."

Well we agree with L Boogie in a sense. It always amazes us that when celebrities like Ms. Hill show their intelligence and speak out about social justice and sorts, they are criticized in the media and press as being crazy. Don't believe me? Ask Dave Chappelle!!!

We wish you well Ms. Hill and can't wait to hear some more of your music as it is very positive and thought provoking.
