Lauryn Hill "Consumerism"...Welcome Home!!

Queen, Lauryn Hill was released last night from Prison on being found "guilty" of Tax Evasion. This is what she has released on her return home. I love myself some Lauyrn Hill, she always shows "Emotional Nudity" and speaks the truth, which is so needed right now. It is refreshing! Here is what she had to say about this track "Consumerism".

"Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven't been able to watch the news too much recently, so I'm not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn't imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it's level" Lauryn Hill
