This week marks the Tenth Annivarsary of 'The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill' it was released on August 25th, 1998 and sold 422,600 copies its first week and to date 10 million records worldwide. In January 1999, Hill received 10 Grammy nominations. The following month she took home five trophies including the awards for Album of the Year, Best New Artist and Best R&B Song.
"I wanted to write songs that lyrically move me and have the integrity of reggae and the knock of hip-hop and the instrumentation of classic soul"
I know I've made a big statement but Im willing to live with it! God dammit! In my humble opinion I believe this to be one of the greatest albums ever produced. An album that covered rap, gospel, reggae and old school soul not to mention the doo-wop elements that can be found spirinkled throughout.
Without getting to deep on you folks this album touched my soul as it did many others.. an album that was a testimony of Ms Hill's life and love with a raw ruggedness that continually saturated her art.
So People what is your favourite cut off the album ?
When It Hurts So Bad
Everthing Is Everything
Nothing Even Matters
Forgive Them Father....
